As ARPN followers know, our growing reliance on foreign mineral resources has serious implications for our national security, competitiveness and the resurgence of American manufacturing. Against this background, the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will be holding a timely hearing to “Examine the Status & Outlook for U.S. and North American Energy and Resource Security” this Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.
ARPN Principal Dan McGroarty has been asked to testify and will discuss the challenges associated with our growing dependence on foreign mineral (non-fuel) mineral resources, as well as ways to mitigate the problems.
He will be joined by witnesses from the International Energy Agency, the American Security Project, the American Nuclear Society, the Manhattan Institute and the Center for Energy Impact at Boston Consulting Group.
The hearing will be webcast live on the committee’s website. If you can’t follow the live proceedings, archived video will be made available shortly after the hearing along with full written witness testimony. We will also post a more detailed write-up along with commentary later this week, so be sure to check back after the hearing.
