Americans are increasingly concerned about the availability and affordability of energy. How will we generate energy in the coming decades—and what will it cost? Will we continue to rely upon politically unstable and sometimes hostile nations to provide critical energy supplies? So-called “peak oil” advocates argue that petroleum production will decline sharply in the near future; others believe that energy supplies will remain relatively abundant. Hard Truths: Facing the Hard Truths about Energy, a recent report by the National Petroleum Council, a federal advisory group, explores political, economic, environmental, and technological constraints on the ways we generate and consume energy in America.

Join us for a discussion of Hard Truths with Lee R. Raymond, chairman of the National Petroleum Council, and James K. Glassman, senior fellow at AEI and editor-in-chief of The American magazine. AEI’s Kenneth P. Green will moderate.
