Hudson Institute and Securing America's Future Energy (SAFE) Event on Oil Security
WASHINGTON, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Monday, April 16, Hudson Institute, in conjunction with Securing America's Future Energy (SAFE), will host a discussion on improving America's energy security.
Geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and rising demand for energy in emerging markets pushed global oil prices in 2011 to their highest annual average in history. Given the near-total dependence of the transportation system on oil, what policies can the United States implement to mitigate the high economic and national security costs of oil price volatility? In the context of a global oil market increasingly defined by foreign actors and conflicts, what meaningful and cost-effective measures are capable of improving U.S. oil security?
Frederick W. Smith, Chairman, President, and CEO, FedEx Corporation; Co-Chairman, SAFE's Energy Security Leadership Council
Gen. P. X. Kelley (Ret.), 28th Commandant, United States Marine Corps; Co-Chairman, Energy Security Leadership Council
Gen. James Conway (Ret.), 34th Commandant, United States Marine Corps; Member, Energy Security Leadership Council

Kenneth Weinstein, Hudson Institute President and CEO, will moderate the discussion.
