Event: The dramatic recent rise in oil prices reflects the fact that for the first time in more than two decades, there is virtually no spare oil production capacity left—with far-reaching implications for national security, economic stability, and all of our pocketbooks. An energy economy based on renewable sources of energy, highly efficient technologies, and hydrogen fuel could foster a more secure world---one that is less vulnerable to chaos in the Middle East and to the threat of climate change provoked by heavy use of fossil fuels.
