Liquid Natural Gas: Geopolitical Implications
Residents of the US, like people in many places around the world, use natural gas for heating, cooking, and power generation.  Because natural gas sources are distributed unevenly, natural gas can be compressed, cooled, and shipped as liquid natural gas (LNG).  Beginning in the 80’s the US began exporting small amounts of LNG, but recently, because on vast new amounts of gas available from fracking, the US is poised to become one of the top 3 LNG exporters.  Our speaker, Robert Price, formerly a senior executive at the US Dept of Energy and currently the founder of Risk Management Strategies LLC, will discuss the importance of LNG to the world, how the US is changing to become a leading producer, and the potential new political impacts from these exports.

This score is then utilized annually to determine if a loss is present to trigger a medical visit before valuable memory is lost forever. In addition, a recent study found that treating hearing loss with hearing aids may reduce the incidence of cognitive decline.
