The crisis in energy policy by John M Deutch( )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,254 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( )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The successful application of new technology requires simultaneous consideration of the technical, economic, political, environmental, and international aspects of the innovation. This book presents fifteen cases of technology applications in the energy and environmental sectors. The case studies include applications of solar, wind, fuel cell, nuclear, and coal combustion and emission control technologies. Both successes and failures are analyzed. The case studies are also used to introduce a toolbox of analytical techniques useful in the context of realistic technology application. These techniques include energy and mass balances, project financial analysis tools, the treatment of external costs and benefits, probabilistic risk assessment, learning curves, regression analysis, and life cycle costing
National security consequences of U.S. oil dependency : report of an independent task force ( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Through most of the 1990s energy supplies were plentiful and prices were low. The Economist speculated about the political consequences of a world in which oil declined to $5 per barrel. U.S. foreign policy generally accorded little attention to energy, except in special circumstances such as the location of strategic pipelines in Central Asia. In recent years, energy prices have surged. President George W. Bush, in this year's State of the Union address, warned of an addiction to imported oil and its perils. Yet there is no consensus on what should be done to shake the addiction. Virtually everything concerning energy has change--except U.S. policy. The Council on Foreign Relations established an Independent Task Force to examine the consequences of dependence on imported energy for U.S. foreign policy. Since the United States both consumes and imports more oil than any other country, the Task Force has concentrated its deliberations on matters of petroleum. In so doing, it reaches a sobering but inescapable judgment: The lack of sustained attention to energy issues is undercutting U.S. foreign policy and national security. The Task Force goes on to argue that U.S. energy policy has been plagued by myths, such as the feasibility of achieving 'energy independence' through increased drilling or anything else. For the next few decades, the challenge facing the United States is to become better equipped to manage its dependencies rather than pursue the chimera of independence. The issues at stake intimately affect U.S. foreign policy, as well as the strength of the American economy and the state of the global environment. But most of the leverage potentially available to the United States is through domestic policy. Thus the Independent Task Force devotes considerable attention to how oil consumption (or at least the growth in consumption) can be reduced, and why and how energy issues must become better integrated with other aspects of U.S. foreign policy."--Provided by publisher
Security transformation report of the Belfer Center Conference on Military Transformation by John Patrick White( )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 233 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
Building capability from the technical revolution that has happened report of the Belfer Center Conference on National Security Transformation by John Patrick White( )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 226 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

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
What should the government do to encourage technical change in the energy sector? by John M Deutch( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 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 U.S. 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 successfully manage 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

Future United States energy security concerns by John M Deutch( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Without energy, the economy can neither function nor grow. However, for at least the next half-century, the U.S. will not have an inexhaustible supply of inexpensive, clean energy. Dependence on energy imports, vulnerability to energy supply disruption, and issues of proliferation of nuclear material are cause for special concern. This paper addresses the geopolitical realities of and connections between energy and security, especially how the energy security issues that we face in the future differ from those we faced in the past
