TFR 66 – Energy Security and Climate Change in the Trilateral Context


“Energy Security and Climate Change” is the second in a series of reports on this topic that the Trilateral Commission has undertaken since 2007.  As the introduction by John Deutch, who contributed to the 2007 report, indicates, many of the assumptions and predictions of that earlier report have changed in eight years. 

The authors alone are responsible for this report’s analysis and conclusions.  They have been aided by consultations with scholars, experts and business leaders from the Trilateral countries.  Although their contributions and insights inform the contents of this report, the report’s analysis and recommendations do not necessarily reflect the individual views of those consulted.
