outline:This year marks the 30th anniversary of OPEC's
six-month oil embargo, which resulted in the most serious economic
downturn since the Great Depression. It is widely believed that
such an embargo, because it hurt the oil-revenue-dependent Gulf
States as much as it hurt the oil-dependent United States, will
never be used again. Nonetheless, as U.S. dependence grows,
so too do the consequences of any interruption of supply. Attacks
on vulnerable petroleum infrastructure or transportation routes
by terrorists pose a very real threat to U.S. national interests.
As anti-American sentiment rises in the very countries on whom
we most rely
What are the security ramifications of our energy dependence? What technologies can help wean the U.S. from its oil dependence?
