POLS 1020 week 16 part II  Westphalia and Two other global commons challenges  The “Tragedy of the Commons”  Petroleum politics: The indispensable resource o Sources of energy  Human muscle  Animal muscle  Natural resources  Non-renewable: coal/oil/natural gas  Renewable: hydro/solar/wind  Nuclear  Some sell it, some buy it o Major exporting states  Saudi Arabia  Some Arab states  Iran  Russia  Canada  Mexico  Venezuela  Nigeria  Angola o Import  US  EU  China  India  Japan  Enormous Price Fluctuations  Petro-America: Long production decline followed by sharp resurgent  American Petroleum consumption  Thanks for fracking, use technology to get oil around instead of producing them  Arab Oil Embargo 1973 – 1974 o Refused to export oil to US  So just in case: Supply security from the strategic petroleum reserve  OPEC The organization of Petroleum exporting countries o Cartel – group of suppliers who withhold supply in order to drive up price (illegal domestically but not internationally) o OPEC has a 30% share of global oil but is the market leader o Saudi Arabia is the leader of OPEC o They want fracking to disappear to keep the price up  OPEC in Disarray Cannot Agree on Quotas to limit output so now historically low global oil prices o In oil-exporting states:  Large budget deficits  Cutback in public services  Political destabilization? o Affecting: Russia/Saudi Arabia/Venezuela/ Others  While Americans Enjoy low prices at the Pump… Large Vehicles are selling more  Fracking is the key  Running out of oil? Nobody knows how long it can last.  Petroleum and Climate Change  US is relatively well stated than other states.  Americans are decreasing the amount of nuclear while other states increase  Population politics: Thomas Malthus  He’s afraid that population is growing faster than food (His basic theory)  Malthusian (his last name) means Pessimism  Population Growth – Pessimist  Are we running out of food?  There are enough of food provide a year for everything  Production isn’t the problem, distribution of economic is the problem  Population Growth – Optimist  Demographic Transition  High birth rates and high death rates  Death rates declines, birth rate remains high for two generations  Birth rate starts to decline, death rate remains low  Both Birth and death rates even out but at much lower level than at start  So global population will level out at around 9-10 billion by the middle of this century  Westphalia and population  No world government dictates the demographic transition  The demographic transition is a function of modernization  Some states have pursued harsh population controls, exp. China  Birth rates of US is below the death rates while China and other states have surplus amount of population  Populations Migration: From the Rest to the West  Latin Americans migrating to North America  Turks, Arabs and Africans migrating to Western Europe  South Asiana (Pakistanis and Indians) migrating to Britain  Immigration Backlash  White Europeans don’t have enough young workers to work for economics but the state is refusing the immigrations because of their race, religions, and etc.  Liberals on Population Growth  Don’t mind it too much  Optimist: human society can adapt  All peoples are inherently good  Take in refugees fleeing oppression and poverty  Worried about it  Strains Earth’s carrying capacity  Migration exacerbates ethnic  Realists  Don’t mind too much:  More population means more economic power  Larger military forces  Enhances national security  But worried:  Migration may weaken sense of national identity  May destabilize state, regions  Wither Our Future?  SUMMING UP
