Increasing Energy Demands and Diminishing Supplies Set Off Intensifying International Struggle to Capture Petroleum Resources

Excerpt of a speech by Michael Klare, professor of Peace and World Security Studies at Hampshire College, produced by Melinda Tuhus


Michael Klare, professor of Peace and World Security Studies at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, is one of the foremost authorities on the politics of oil. He has written widely on the subject -- with his most recent book, "Blood and Oil: The Dangers and Consequences of America's Growing Dependency on Imported Oil," addressing the intensifying international struggle to capture petroleum resources.

Klare was the keynote speaker at a Yale University conference on Global Oil Frontiers on April 29. His topic was "Petroleum Flows and Political Conflict," in which he addressed three areas: The shortfall between supply and demand, and increased competition for the oil that remains; the historic shift in world oil production from the global north to the global south; and the increasing militarization of national policies to protect countries' access to oil. Here we present an excerpt of Klare's speech.

Contact the Hampshire College Peace and World Security Studies Department at (413) 559-5367 or visit their website at pawss.hampshire.edu. Klare's talk was recorded and produced by Between The Lines' Melinda Tuhus.
