November 18, 2008, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
recently held a discussion on
"Living with Energy Dependence"
12:00PM - 2:00PM
Stelzer, Hogan, Stuntz, and Sant
At this event, Irwin Stelzer, Director of Hudson Institute's Economic Policy Studies, discussed his incisive report, "Energy Policy: Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here." In this new monograph Stelzer demonstrates that for the foreseeable future, the United States will be dependent for transportation purposes on imported oil from unfriendly nations—whether or not we decide to drill at home. For both transportation and other energy needs, neither nuclear nor alternative fuels can be developed quickly enough—even if politics and environmental concerns were not an issue.
Coal is our best non-oil source of energy in the near term, and with market-based incentives technological advances can make this abundant energy source even more promising.
Stelzer argues in favor of a market-based approach to energy policy that incorporates measures to include in the price the cost of such "externalities" as the effects of pollution and the need to defend our oil-supply sources.
Stelzer was joined for this discussion by energy experts William Hogan, Raymond Plank Professor of Global Energy Policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government; Roger Sant, Co-Founder of AES Corporation and Chairman of the Smithsonian Board of Regents; and Linda Stuntz, former Deputy Secretary of the Department of Energy and Founding Partner of the law firm of Stuntz, Davis & Staffier, P.C.
