The Age of Consequences: The Foreign Policy and National Security Implications of Global Climate Change. By Kurt M. Campbell et al. Documents the work of a diverse group of experts under the direction of the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the Center for a New American Security (CNAS). The group consisted of nationally recognized leaders in the fields of climate science, foreign policy, political science, oceanography, history, and national security. Their mandate was to consider the potential future foreign policy and national security implications of climate change and to employ the best available evidence and climate models to predict three future worlds that would fall within the range of scientific plausibility.

Energy and National Security In The 21st Century. Edited by Patrick L. Clawson. A collection of papers concerning national security and the energy market. They consider energy prospects in key countries from the point of view of security, either because the countries are in volatile regions like the Persian Gulf or because they are major military and energy powers like Russia. These analyses represent an exchange of views among people from two rather different communities: those concerned with national security and those concerned with energy and economics. More...

Enough Blood Shed: 101 Solutions to Violence, Terror And War. By Guy Dauncey. Confronts the reality of a world awash in weapons and the belief that war is inevitable.

Outlines the steps being taken to build a culture of peace. More…

Full Planet, Empty Plates: The New Geopolitics of Food Scarcity. By Lester Brown. With food scarcity driven by falling water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures, control of land and water is moving to center stage in the struggle for food security. The ability to grow food is a new form of geopolitical leverage – food is the new oil. What will the geopolitics of food look like in an era of scarcity and food nationalism? Brown outlines the political implications of land acquisitions in Africa and elsewhere by grain-importing countries as well as of our shrinking buffers against poor harvests. As Kindle | More…

Human Needs and the Security of Nations. By Lester Brown. This short 63-page book focuses mostly on the conservation of natural resources. It is Issue 238 of the Headline Series published in 1978 by the Foreign Polity Association. More…

In The Human Interest: A Strategy To Stabilize World Population. By Lester Brown. This book makes the case that uncontrolled human fertility may pose a greater threat to our future well-being and individual security than any other single factor. Stabilizing world population requires action on two broad fronts: the systematic extension of family planning services to all, and the satisfaction of basic social needs (which results in a lower birth rate). More…

Outgrowing The Earth. By Lester Brown. Falling water tables in countries that contain more than half the world's people and rising temperatures worldwide are the leading threats to global security. Water shortages and crop-withering heat waves are shrinking grain harvests, making it difficult for the world's farmers to feed 70 million more people each year. Tightening food supplies could drive up food prices, destabilizing governments in low-income grain-importing countries and disrupting global economic progress. Future security depends on raising water productivity and stabilizing climate and population. More…

The Perpetual Consequences of Fear and Violence: Rethinking the Future. By Chris Maser. Arguing that current conflicts in the war on terrorism are doing tremendous damage to future generations, this timely analysis draws on the work of non-violent leaders like Gandhi to provide alternatives to responding to increased levels of fear and anxiety with violence. Seizing on the surprising example of Northwest salmon as a paradigm, contemporary clashes like the "War on Terror" are dissected with an eye toward the "political ecosystems" they endanger. Also included is a meditation on what citizens can do. More… | Chris Maser EcoSpeakers Info >>

A Strategy for American Power: Energy, Climate and National Security. By Sharon Burke et al. Argues that with a comprehensive strategy to change both our supply of fuels and our demand, the United States can win the energy war. This report gives an overview of the nature of the energy challenge, describes the main elements of a strategy for energy security, and offers a plan of action for how to execute that strategy.

World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse.  By Lester Brown. In this urgent time, World on the Edge calls out the pivotal environmental issues and how to solve them now. Can we close coal-fired power plants fast enough to save the Greenland ice sheet and avoid catastrophic sea level rise? Can we raise water productivity fast enough to halt the depletion of aquifers and avoid water-driven food shortages? Can we cope with peak water and peak oil at the same time? Bringing decades of research and analysis into play, Brown provides the responses needed to reclaim our future. As Kindle | More…
