The crisis in energy policy by John M Deutch( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our future depends on what we do about energy. This stark fact, clear since the oil embargo of the 1970s, has been hammered home through crisis after crisis--and yet our government has failed to come up with a coherent energy policy. John Deutch, with his extraordinary mix of technical, scholarly, corporate, and governmental expertise in the realm of energy, is uniquely qualified to explain what has stood in the way of progress on this most pressing issue. His book is at once an eye-opening history of the muddled practices that have passed for energy policy over the past thirty years, and a cogent account of what we can and should learn from so many breakdowns of strategy and execution. Three goals drive any comprehensive energy policy: develop an effective approach to climate change; transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy technologies; and increase the efficiency of energy use to reduce dependence on imported oil. Why has every effort in this direction eventually fallen short? Deutch identifies the sources of this failure in our popular but unrealistic goals, our competing domestic and international agendas, and our poor analysis in planning, policy-making, and administering government programs. Most significantly, The Crisis in Energy Policy clarifies the need to link domestic and global considerations, as well as the critical importance of integrating technical, economic, and political factors. Written for experts and citizens alike, this book will strengthen the hand of anyone concerned about the future of energy policy. -- From Inside Flap
Making technology work : applications in energy and the environment by John M Deutch( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National security consequences of U.S. oil dependency : report of an independent task force( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lack of sustained attention to energy issues is undercutting U.S. foreign policy and U.S. national security. Major energy suppliers - from Russia to Iran to Venezuela - have been increasingly able and willing to use their energy resources to pursue their strategic and political objectives. Major energy consumers - notably the United States, but other countries as well - are finding that their growing dependence on imported energy increases their strategic vulnerability and constrains their ability to pursue a broad range of foreign policy and national security objectives. Dependence also puts the United States into increasing competition with other importing countries, notably with today's rapidly growing emerging economies of China and India. At best, these trends will challenge U.S. foreign policy; at worst, they will seriously strain relations between the United States and these countries

Building capability from the technical revolution that has happened : report of the Belfer Center Conference on National Security Transformation by John Patrick White( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second annual conference on national security transformation confirms the usefulness of an annual appraisal by knowledgeable security specialists of progress on achieving different elements of transformation. But the conference also demonstrated that changing geopolitical circumstances and consequent national security concerns shape which aspects of transformation capture the most attention
Security transformation : report of the Belfer Center Conference on Military Transformation by John P White( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attacks of September 11, 2001, represented the beginning of what President Bush has called [beta]a new kind of war.[gamma] While terrorism itself has long been on our spectrum of real and immediate threats, the magnitude of the attacks and the administration[alpha]s aggressive and expansive response have changed the definition of national security. Homeland security, the new first priority, needs to be integrated with more traditional national security concerns. The role of the Intelligence Community must strike a new balance in terms of foreign intelligence and domestic security. The military mission should be redefined. Meeting all of these challenges demands a fundamental transformation of American strategy, armed forces, and national security organization. This conference identified key issues and questions and was the inaugural event in a long-term project to assess defense transformation. This report summarizes the discussions from that workshop

Toward Improved US-Japan Relations( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two articles examining the situation of Japan-US relations, which has been characterised by recriminations and tactical adjustments:ʹ- "The United States, Japan, and a changing Global Economy" (argues that completion of the GATT Uruguay Round is a pre-requisite for improving relations. However, other challenges will have to be tackled, such as the structural imbalances in US-Japan trade).ʹ- "Harnessing Japan: a US strategy for managing Japan's rise as a global power" (examines the implications of the end of the Cold War on Japan-US relations. The authors argue that although the US still acts as a leader, the status quo is untenable).--SCAD summary
Saving NATO's Foundation( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper highlights the often-ignored factor that is increasingly imperilling NATO's future, i.e. the sorry state of transatlantic co-operation in the defence industry. The analysis argues that the US and European defence industries are growing increasingly separate, undermining NATO's political base and strengthening America's isolationists. It concludes that the leading defence companies on both sides of the Atlantic should start working together for their mutual benefit, and for NATO's.--SCAD summary
What should the government do to encourage technical change in the energy sector? by John M Deutch( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Government support of innovation - both technology creation and technology demonstration - is desirable to encourage private investors to adopt new technology. In this paper, I review the government role in encouraging technology innovation and the success of the Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor agencies in advancing technology in the energy sector. The DOE has had better success in the first stage of innovation (sponsoring R & D to create new technology options) than in the second stage (demonstrating technologies with the objective of encouraging adoption by the private sector). I argue that the DOE does not have the expertise, policy instruments, or contracting flexibility to manage successfully technology demonstration, and that consideration should be given to establishing a new mechanism for this purpose. The ill-fated 1980 Synthetic Fuels Corporation offers an interesting model for such a mechanism

Managing Nuclear Ambitions( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three articles:ʹ- Is proliferation inevitable? As nuclear technology becomes more accessible, efforts to control its spread grow more difficult.ʹ- Four experts respond - leading authorities on the issue discuss the preceding article and its implications.ʹ- The search for safeguards. A clear distinction must be maintained between civilian and military applications.--SCAD summary
