SEatWtC Part 2: Introduction

In the world of tomorrow, energy will likely be the most significant driver in global policy and the balance of power. The energy sources of today appear to be of finite supply and to sustain the quality of life we enjoy today we will need to either find new supplies or develop new methods and technology to significantly improve the efficiency by which we utilize our energy sources. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do both. But how will this play out? How will energy sources and availability affect business and politics, both globally and locally? There are many aspects of this to cover, and I’m sure we won’t cover them all here in this paper. Regardless, it’s an important topic to cover and to make sure we’re applying ourselves today so that we’re not caught off-guard tomorrow.

To begin with, we’ll look at current energy policies and how they vary around the globe. From there we’ll move into our energy supplies and sources and where we may need to be harnessing our energy in the future. This topic will transition nicely into the future balance of power and potential strife over who gets to use and sell these energy sources. We’ll also cover the obligatory and current hot topic of global warming and how we as the world will need to address the issue of our warming planet. We’ll then conclude with the issue of sustainability and how this very issue is perhaps the most important of them all. The thread that will tie all these topics together is how this will impact both trade and politics, from neighborhoods markets to the international arena.

Tune in tomorrow for Part 3 of SEatWtC!
