When we talk about security, inevitably the word energy comes up. It is truly a global challenge that we face, and these terms - energy and security - are becoming synonymous.
Energy security is among the most critical issues facing our nation, and in particular our next administration.
To us, energy security is about families, businesses, and governments, who need and count on a steady supply of fuel and power from a broad range of sources.
Diversity in the supply of fuels will help secure affordable energy, while at the same time improving the environment - which is most important.
Our citizens know that some countries are using oil and other energy resources as both political and economic weapons. This is a very sophisticated and different 21st century where national security and energy are closely linked.
To enhance global security, the United States and other major economies must invest more and more in expanding the capabilities of all sources of energy.
There's a basic feeling of optimism that technology - a staple of American innovation - can help us all maintain a lifestyle of instant and unfettered mobility, which is the bedrock of our country.
Yesterday, the Institute for 21st Century Energy presented A National Dialogue on Energy Security: The Shell Final Report, the result of a 50 city tour and dialogue with the public about our energy future, how we should manage our growing energy demands, and what our mix of energy sources will be going forward.
