Energy Security For Whom? For What?
Study | 16 February 2012
How can fossil fuels and uranium be kept in the ground and agrofuels off the land in ways that do not inflict suffering upon millions? Mainstream policy responses to these issues are largely framed in terms of “energy security”. Yet far from making energy supplies more secure, such policies are triggering a cascade of new insecurities for millions of people.
This report, authored by The Corner House and published in cooperation with Bankwatch and other NGOs, considers the pitfalls of “energy security”, both as policy and as rhetoric.
