Energy crisis is focus of talk, Oct. 5

Oil industry expert Edward Morse will deliver a lecture titled "Today’s Energy Crisis: It's Bigger Than 1973," at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, in 16 Robertson Hall.

Morse has been a leading specialist on the international oil and gas sector for more than two decades. He was deputy assistant secretary of state for international energy policy from 1978 to 1981, serving as the department's most senior official devoted full-time to energy issues.

Morse currently is an executive adviser to the Hess Energy Trading Co., which he joined in 1999 after more than a decade as publisher of Petroleum Intelligence Weekly and other oil and gas industry newsletters. In 2001, he chaired a task force on energy security jointly sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations of New York and the James A. Baker III Institute at Rice University.
Morse earned his Ph.D. in politics from Princeton in 1969. He has taught at Princeton, Columbia and Johns Hopkins universities and has been a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.

The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
