arbcombo -- Low Carbon Transportation: A Crucial Link to Economic and National Security Posted: 22 Aug 2012 15:46:36
We are pleased to announce the next webcast Chair’s Lecture Series on: Low Carbon Transportation: A Crucial Link to Economic and National Security. David L. Greene, Ph.D., Senior Fellow, Howard H. Baker Jr., Center for Public Policy, University of Tennessee, and Corporate Fellow, Oak Ridge National Laboratory Tuesday, September 4, 2012, 12 - Noon PDT Byron Sher Auditorium, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California Petroleum dependence is a serious economic and national security problem for the U.S. High levels of consumption and imports, coupled with the use of monopoly power in global oil markets and a historical lack of alternatives, have imposed significant costs on the U.S. economy. Today, direct economic costs from petroleum dependence are higher than they were during the oil embargoes of the 1970s and are estimated to have exceeded $2 trillion since 2005. These costs represent wealth transfer out of the country and lost economic output due to monopoly pricing and price spikes. (They do not account for indirect costs related to congestion, defense, or health impacts). Reducing petroleum dependence by transitioning to a low carbon transportation system can generate hundreds of billions of dollars annually in economic and national security benefits for the U.S. By greatly increasing energy efficiency and substituting hydrogen, electricity and biofuels produced with low net greenhouse gas emissions, the U.S. can develop a sustainable and diverse transportation system while fostering a crucial link to economic and national security.
