On January 21st, Thomas E. Donilon, former National Security Advisor and a member of the Center on Global Energy Policy’s Advisory Board, delivered remarks about recent issues in energy geopolitics and national security, including the recent collapse in oil prices.

His speech keynoted an event to present a new report, Navigating the U.S. Oil Export Debate, a collaboration between the Center on Global Energy Policy and the Rhodium Group.
