A Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University seminar Klare talks about America's "sole superpower" status falling to the increasing influence of "petro-superpowers" like Russia and "Chindia." He identifies and analyzes the major players as well as the playing field, positing armed conflict and environmental disaster in the balance. Currently in the lead is emerging energy superpower Russia, which has gained "immense geopolitical influence" selling oil and natural gas to Europe and Asia; the rapidly-developing economies of China and India follow. Klare also warns of the danger of a new cold-war environment that would suck up resources that should go toward "environmentally sensitive energy alternatives."
