Governance of the seas and energy sufficiency fuel "First Israel victory, then peace" suggestion

Reader comment on item: The End of Carbon Fuels?

Submitted by Orestis Schinas, Jul 3, 2018 at 18:31

Your article on the end of carbon fuels is very interesting, as many researchers and technology providers fail to highlight the importance of oil and generally of energy in the web of relations among States. Very few analysts consider also the importance of tankships, as oil and LNG are mainly transported by sea.

Moreover, I think that the issue of the governance of the seas, a topic that is closely related to the oil business, considering the rights of the States in Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ), such as of exploration and exploitation of underwater and seabed resources, should attract the interest of the analysts of MEF.

As the focus of your work is on Israeli and US interests, I think that the recent developments in the East-Med and the potential connection of Israel with the energy grids of Europe via the EEZ of Greece and Cyprus, as well as the potential of mutual benefits with Egypt, deserves your attention, as it fully supports your 'First Israel victory, then peace' suggestion.

Good idea, though Israel is not the focus of my work.
