This testimony compilation is from the July 22, 2014 hearing, "U.S. Security Implications of International Energy and Climate Policies and Issues," before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on International Development and Foreign Assistance, Economic Affairs, International Environmental Protection, and Peace Corps. From Amos Hochstein's Witness Testimony: "Recent developments splashed across the front pages of newspapers around the globe serve as the latest reminders of the interplay between energy security and foreign policy. The critical nature of the geopolitics of energy is easily on display when you look at global oil supply disruptions, which are at historic levels of over three million barrels per day due to reduced output in Libya, Sudan and South Sudan caused by political instability, politically motivated declines in Nigeria and Venezuela, and reductions in Iran's exports by over 50 percent due to effective U.S. sanctions." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Amos Hochstein, Eric Postel, Daniel Chiu, David Titley, David Goldwyn, Mary Hutzler, and Michael Breen.
