A highly topical and deeply controversial look at the potential impact of global environmental change from an international award-winning journalist.Global Warring takes the most likely short-to-medium-term environmental change scenarios and extrapolates ways in which they could radically alter human existence. How aggressive will water-hungry China become in order to secure supplies? What will happen when climate-triggered conflicts like the one in Sudan spread throughout the continent? How will the growing tensions over the soon accessible Northwest Passage affect Canada-U.S. relations? As India and its still-booming population takes its proper place at the high table of nations and begins the large-scale importing of food, what will happen to already dwindling global storehouses?Combining the most up-to-date climate research and interviews with top political theorists and military planners, author Cleo Paskal identifies problem areas that are most likely to start wars, destroy economies, create failed states, and even potentially lead to a global population crash. A highly topical and deeply controversial book, Global Warring is essential to understanding the world of tomorrow.
