War for Oil?

Summary:
I came across another video of a talk I gave at the Naval Postgraduate School. This is one I gave in 2015. It ends at about the 42:00 point. I’ve got another project today and so I don’t have time to time stamp it. You will see, though, that toward the end of my 42 minute presentation, I talk about “peak oil,” thus overlapping what I talked about in my talk that I highlighted yesterday. I covered some of the same ground in an early 1991 speech when people in the Bush administration really were talking about going to war for oil.
