Where American Indians tribes fought over the best hunting grounds and nations slaughtered each other for access to the sea - so today our forces and policy revolve around access to affordable sources of energy.
The more a nation relies on foreign sources, the more it will find itself in foreign entanglements - not to mention the economic problems of sending your dollars abroad in such huge numbers/
New technology is giving our nation another path towards more energy independence in a way that may lead to a reassessment of our national security requirements.
Join us this Sunday, July 7th from 5-6pm EST as EagleOne and I discuss the topic for the full hour with Amy Myers Jaffe, the Wallace S. Wilson Fellow in Energy Studies, director of the Energy Forum at the Baker Institute, author, and associate director of the Rice Energy Program at Rice University.
Ms. Jaffe is one of the authors of the paper, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, from the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University, “SHALE GAS AND U.S. NATIONAL SECURITY” and has studied this area extensively.
Join us live if you can and join in with the usual suspects in the chat room where you can contribute your thoughts and observation - and suggest to us questions for our guests.
