Alternative Fuels and National Security (Oct 15, 2006)
Prior to September 11, 2001, the need to reduce US dependence on foreign oil was not clear to many Americans, and the path of doing so seemed a long, difficult and unnecessary one. But the terrorism risks in the post-9/11 world, the higher oil prices and the increased awareness of the vulnerability of the oil infrastructure have changed all that, as has technological progress in fuel efficiency and the development of alternative fuels. Former U.S. Central Intelligence Agency director James Woolsey discusses why global reliance on petroleum and related products to fuel the worldís transportation needs creates special dangers in our time. He spoke earlier this month at the Oklahoma Governorís Conference on Biofuels, held on the campus of the University of Oklahoma.
