Jan 24, 2012: “Climate Wars: What People Will Be Killed For in the 21st Century” published

24janclimatewarsJanuary 24th 2012 saw the Publication of “Climate Wars: What People Will Be Killed For in the 21st Century” by Harald Walzer


Is this any good? We can cheerfully say “don’t know”, since we’ve not read it.

There are several books on this theme not least (both of which ARE good)

Global Warring: How Environmental, Economic, and Political Crises Will Redraw the World Map by Cleo Paskal

Climate Wars: The Fight for Survival as the World Overheats by Gwynne Dyer

There’s also the famous/infamous Pentagon report of 2003 by Andy “Yoda” Marshall and a more recent one (see NYT October 13 2014) about the security risks it poses

Of course, a cynic would say that the military-types are always looking for new threats to war game, to justify their budgets. While that’s true, it doesn’t mean that all threats are invented…

Other things that happened on this day:

YEAR: 1946 – The United Nations General Assembly passes its first resolution to establish the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission.
