On Monday, May 1 from 11:30 to 1:30 (brown-bag lunch) at Plymouth Congregational Church (916 W Prospect Rd, Fort Collins) the International Relations Team will host a Great Decisions discussion exploring how the U.S. petroleum security impacts foreign policy.
For 45 years, the country has alternated between periods of energy security and insecurity, sometimes able to wield petroleum as a useful instrument of foreign policy, sometimes not. Despite the so-called “energy revolution,” the U.S. today is by no means disentangled from foreign dependence and global trends. In order to be successful, policymakers must recognize both petroleum security circumstances and patterns in the relationship between petroleum and foreign policy.
Guest are welcome. Contact Kay Easley (InternationalRelations@lwv-larimercounty.org) with any questions or to join in the discussions.
