UW to Host Global Competition for Energy Symposium in Cody
The University of Wyoming will host an energy symposium at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19, at the Park County Library in Cody.
The event, sponsored by the UW International Studies Program, School of Energy Resources and Department of History, is free and open the public.
Charles Mason, UW's H.A. True Jr. professor of petroleum and natural gas economics, will discuss energy trends in Wyoming and globally.
Jean Garrison, UW director of International Studies and associate professor of political science, will discuss China's rising energy demand and implications for U.S. foreign policy.
Marianne Kamp, UW director of Women's Studies and associate professor of history, will discuss the pipeline game involving the Caspian Basin, Russia and the West.
James E. Nielson, president and CEO of Nielson and Associates, Inc., will focus on Wyoming's place in national and global energy markets.
"The symposium will focus on the issues of energy security, how to address the looming global energy crunch and how the world's response will determine future prospects for cooperation or conflict," says Garrison. "As an energy-producing state, Wyoming has a direct stake in the emerging volatile trends in the global energy market and a possible voice in determining solutions to the energy crisis."
