Energy Summit Topic: Oil, National Security, and What We Can Do About It
Most of the world's oil reserves are located in countries in which radical Islam is on the rise. The rise of the developing world is driving up oil demand. Jihadists have marked oil as a target as part of a comprehensive strategy of economic warfare. What are the national security implications of our oil demand and how can we employ technology to break the strategic power of oil?
