Gaia's Revenge synopsis
By highlighting the links between climatechange and human security, this book illustrates what might happen when a 10 ° C drop in temperature leads to a sudden inability to produce enough food when rapid desertification of efficiency leads to water scarcity, Are already present, and when the newly frozen landscape leads to more power plants to obtain energy, leading to increased air pollution. The destabilizing effects of these possibilities create many potential challenges to the national security of the United States in a globalized world where we may have to intervene militarily to protect our interests around the world.
In February 2004, the Pentagon's report on climatechange and its impact on national security received exceptional attention and publicity. However, the attention of the public is focused almost exclusively on the inevitability of death and catastrophe, especially on a scenario that identifies a potential future similar to a climate event that occurred 8,200 years ago and its impact on the availability of food, energy and water.
This book offers a broad examination of the meaning of climatechange and global warming while maintaining a strategic perspective on the implications of environmental impacts on all forms of security - national, international and human (exceeding borders and carrying out more basic resources). Given the uncertainty surrounding climatechange as a specific event, the authors discuss the recognition of the profound social, political and human impact that could occur in the coming years.
While both Liotta and Shearer recognize the inherent risks of prediction, they effectively present the issue that time is not only about identifying, but dealing with, potential deep consequences.
