Access to oil and gas has long held an influence over the politics of individual nations and their relations with others. But as more countries move toward sustainable energy, and supply chain shortages affect the availability of oil and gas, how will this change the way in which the United States interacts with the outside world? By Carolyn Kissane.

The group discussion leader and facilitator is David Thomas. David is a retired attorney with high level degrees including a Law Degree from Harvard, a PhD in Religion, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science.
