U.S. Army War College scholar joins American Resources expert panel

We’re thrilled to announce that Dr. Kent Butts, a scholar at the U.S. Army War College, has joined the American Resources Policy Network’s panel of issue experts.

Dr. Butts serves as both Professor of Political Military Strategy and Director of the National Security Issues Group at the Center for Strategic Leadership, U.S. Army War College.  His expertise on strategic minerals and the role natural resources play for our national security make Dr. Butts a terrific fit for our expert panel.

Following extensive research in Southern Africa on strategic minerals, Dr. Butts authored a timely paper entitled “Strategic Minerals: Is China’s Consumption a Threat to United States Security?.” He has also organized and conducted international conferences and workshops on natural resources and security in the Middle East, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.

On November 2, Dr. Butts will join two other American Resources experts, Daniel McGroarty and Gareth Hatch, as a speaker at the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) conference “Rare Earths, Critical Metals, Energy and National Security,” an event you should bookmark if you’re in the Washington, D.C. area.
