University Outreach & Roundtable EventsA noted an example of our success- a student who had attended The Fund for American Studies program at Georgetown University and participated in one of the roundtables wrote: “I enjoyed the roundtable so much that it prompted me to enroll in a natural resources and environmental economics course. I am beginning to work on a research paper on how our nation’s energy policy should be structured and improved.” The student also sought Energy Advocate advice on the best texts and research to learn more, as well as insight on graduate schools and possible career paths involving energy policy. The student’s e-mail concluded, “The roundtable was one of the highlights of my time in Washington, D.C.” We need this effort in 2014 to Tell Our Story!

Film/DocumentaryA Film/Documentary is being planned, based on the book: The Secret of Sherwood Forest, (option for the book has been negotiated). -- Our energy industry for decades has provided energy security. The book describes how during World War II the British government, our ally, needed more oil to defeat the Germans. However, most of the oil they used was imported. Then oil was discovered in England’s Sherwood Forest, but the British needed America’s help because they did not have the technological know-how to drill and produce it. Under secret arrangements made in February 1943, the American government sent forty-four oil field workers from Oklahoma to assist. These employees from Oklahoma were known as the “Oil Patch Warriors”.
