It is a reality that our world continues to demand and use more and more resources. Global population has increased to 7 billion with projections of 9 billion in just a few years. We have learned that economic and social stability relies on having a sufficient supply of at least three critically important resources: food, water and energy. Shortage of even one of these and a country is subject to buying (importing) on the open market. Can anyone imagine the U.S. having to buy food and/or water? But yet, we have become all to accustomed to being a nation that buys energy to help meet our expectations as a world economic leader and powerful international ally.
