Brown Bag Discussion: The Perils of Extreme Energy

photo of oil rigThe oil industry’s reckless pursuit of extreme energy carries with it the inevitable risks of environmental and political peril. The Gulf oil spill is only the latest in a series of disasters. Arctic drilling, deals with African dictatorships, natural gas pipelines in Central Asia: the pursuit of fossil fuels has brought the United States into war, corruption, and ecological messes.

Noted author and Hampshire College professor Michael Klare, whose latest book Rising Powers, Shrinking Planet describes the geopolitics of the energy crisis, will talk about the causes behind the Gulf oil spill.

Because space is limited, please RSVP for this event to netfa@ips-dc.org.
