Please join Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) and Bethany McLean at the National Press Club on Thursday, December 13 as she discusses her new book, Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It’s Changing the World.
From the Permian in Texas to the Bakken in North Dakota, the U.S. shale revolution has changed the American economy and upended energy geopolitics. From the shale boom, the U.S. has emerged as the world’s top producer of oil and natural gas, ushering in an era of enhanced energy security – and prompted calls from the White House for an era of ‘energy dominance.’
Will this new-found energy wealth last? In her latest book, journalist Bethany McLean digs into the boom-bust cycles that have plagued the U.S. oil industry over the last 10 years, exploring the inner workings of a business reliant on ever-growing amounts of capital investment and returns that have yet to bear out.
Please join SAFE and Bethany McLean as she discusses her book in a fireside chat with SAFE President and CEO Robbie Diamond, before the floor is opened to questions from the audience.
