15th World Hydrogen Energy Conference: Science, Technology and Exhibition - New Trend in Hydrogen
Time & Location: 6-27-2004 to 7-2-2004, Yokohama, Japan
Organizer:  Hydrogen Energy Systems Society of Japan (HESS)
Dependency on uncertain and interruptible energy supplies from Middle Eastern states is a crucial strategic issue that must be resolved to assure the long-term security of Israel, the United States and the world's other democracies. The importation of these critical fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas) is vulnerable to economic as well as physical attack. The world's democracies spend billions of dollars each year trying to protect access to these resources. In addition, the petrodollars that the suppliers receive often end up being used for purposes inimical to the interests of the world's democracies; these funds are used to purchase weapons, to support the spread of radical Islamicist thought, and to finance the spread of terrorism. For all of these reasons, reducing dependency on fossil fuels is a critical and timely challenge for the world's democracies.
