Spykman was both a follower and critic of geostrategists Alfred Mahanand Halford Mackinder. The End of the Energy Wars? The country doesn't have much of a domestic renewables industry, compared with China, the United States or Germany, though it is home to Suzlon Energy Ltd. The Chinese are certainly also looking at pipelines that would circumvent the Malacca Strait, another key choke point. It will be characterized by Russian attempts to expand its sphere of influence into Central and Eastern Europecoupled with a buildup of Russian military capabilities.
More recently, it has proposed an ambitious initiative to integrate electricity markets throughout Asia with up to 3, kilometers 1, miles of long-distance, high-voltage transmission lines. All three of these things have to do with the stability of a region that holds 60 percent of conventional oil reserves. Second, states have to live with a perpetual existential crisis that occasionally may result in conflict. However, in the years after the end of the Second Cold War and collapse of Russia, the United States will gradually become uneasy as Turkey and Japan expand their military power and economic influence. Smaller countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Uruguay, Nicaragua, Morocco and Kenya, meanwhile, could gain outsize regional influence as a result of the transition, thanks to their potential for exporting renewable energy and technology. Technological predictions[ edit ] Among the technological predictions made in the book are the development of hypersonic aircraft and missiles, new space-based technology that will foster the development of military bases on the Moon and manned military orbiting platforms referred to in the book as "Battle Stars"and armored robotic battle suits for infantrymen that run on solar power.
The result is a globalized oil, coal and natural gas market and an international oil trade conducted in U. Fourth, geopolitics will not become obscure and obsolete as competition and conflict will perpetually remain. The Turkish sphere of influence will extend into the Arab worldwhich will have increasingly fragmented by then, and north into Russia and other former Soviet countries. The United States will become a close ally to some Central and Eastern European countries, all of whom will be dedicated to resisting Russian geopolitical threats during this period.

King Hubbert, the father of the peak oil theory, under his calculation the U. An extended crisis between the United States and Mexico will ensue, one that the United States will be unable to resolve through the use of military force.
In addition, the economic problems imposed by mass retirement of the Baby Boomers will fade away as the last of the Boomers die. Twenty-four hours a day. Decentralizing electricity grids will mitigate this risk. Friedman's final prediction is that the conflict will continue into the 22nd century.
So I think their investment in alternative energy and efficiency is in that context. Other powers will then move in to annex or establish spheres of influence in the area, and in many cases, regional leaders will secede.
US-Mexican conflict[ edit ] According to the book, North America will remain the center of gravity for the global economic and political system for at least a few more centuries following the 21st geopolitics of energy into the 21st century book.
This has been observed in particular by critics of contemporary academic geography, and proponents of a "neo"-classical geopolitics in particular. The primary weapons of the war will be long-range hypersonic aircraft and infantrymen with highly sophisticated, powered body-armor.
One more map to look at, this one on pipeline politics, is on page And compared with more traditional fuels such as natural gas and coal, renewable energies have a much higher potential for decentralized generation. So, for instance, the Middle East will increasingly look east for its growth markets.
Electric grids, after all, are harder to use as a political weapon than are natural gas pipelines, for example. A common Agency tactic was writing editorials and phoney news stories to be knowingly published by Latin American media with no indication of the CIA authorship or CIA payment to the media.
This boom will begin in the s after the war and last throughout the s. However, this does not guarantee that the United States will always dominate North America.
