The Santa Fe Council on International Relations (CIR) is hosting a discussion on “The World Politics of a Changing Energy Landscape” with speaker James Clad―senior advisor to the Center for Naval Analysis and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense―at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 22 at Tipton Hall, Santa Fe University of Art and Design, 1600 St. Michael’s Dr.
Cost is $15 for CIR members, and $20 for non-members and guests.
Clad will discuss how recent energy trends have upset the world oil market and transformed the geopolitical landscape.
Asian energy demand is surging, Russian natural gas sales are falling following EU sanctions and a dramatic increase in oil production in North America has sparked a rivalry with OPEC that has brought global prices to a five-year low.
This flurry of activity has upended traditional trade patterns and threatened energy security for many nations around the world. While market volatility has brought short-term benefits to the manufacturing and transportation industries, many analysts believe sustained instability could result in a global recession.
