Leaders in the field of energy development, environmental health, law, media, and the military, including Hoover Annenberg Distinguished Visiting fellow Gen. John Abizaid (ret.), participated in the second annual Roundtable at Stanford, “Courting Disaster: The Fight for Oil, Water and a Healthy Planet,” held on October 13th in Maples Pavillion.
The panelists discussed how world population increases, surging economic growth in new economies and an unabated appetite for fossil fuels are driving demand for the world's natural resources—at a time when nations are struggling to address the environmental threats posed by global warming.
