As its economy flourishes, China is engaged in a far-flung quest for natural resources across the globe. Beijing’s appetite for natural resources is restructuring markets, pushing up commodity prices, transforming resource-rich economies through investment and trade, including the Western Hemisphere. But despite China’s role in the global resource game, it is far from the only player. Booming oil and gas production in the United States continues to send ripples across the Western Hemisphere and beyond.

We are delighted to invite you to join us on Tuesday, April 8 at 6:30pm for a discussion on the future of energy with Michael Levi, the David M. Rubenstein Senior Fellow for Energy and the Environment and Director of the Program on Energy Security and Climate Change at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Dr. Levi will discuss the global implications of this changing energy landscape, and its impact on China, the United States and the Western Hemisphere more broadly. He will also inform us what China’s economic growth means for global climate change.

Dr. Levi is also the author of two recent books, By All Means Necessary: How China’s Resource Quest is Changing the World (co-authored with Elizabeth Economy) and The Power Surge: Energy, Opportunity, and the Battle for America’s Future. Both books will be available for purchase and Dr. Levi will be available for a signing after the talk.
