How Green Is the U.S. Supreme Court?

And, finally, Burlington Northern v. U.S., No. 07-1601, consolidated with Shell Oil v. U.S., No. 07-1607, also has potentially wide ramifications, all contend.

From boom to glut

If sustained, the lower price level will have further repercussions. Big producers such as Russia and Venezuela will struggle to exert political influence through energy policy. Resource nationalism, where oil-rich governments impose tougher terms on independent companies and – notably in the case of Shell in Russia – force them to cede control of assets, may soon be a spent force.
