Energy, security,biodiversity loss 1

  1. 1. Conceptual Links & Examples: Security, Energy & Biodiversity Loss<br />
  2. 2. Security is mobilized as an element to bring/ preserve fear/uncertainty in energy and biodiversity (food security) discourses and to promote/ preserve existing power relations within society<br />Example: <br />Nuclear push in UK, govt. endorsement of GMO<br />
  3. 3. Energy Security threatens Biodiversity (domestic extraction of fossil fuels)<br />Example: <br />Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill<br />Trans-Alaska Pipeline obstructs migration routes<br />UK Wales, the case of the Connah’s Quay hydropower plant(weak, insufficient, non-inclusive EIA result in marine/coastal eco-system bio. Loss<br />
  4. 4. Energy intensive monoculture aims to preserve food security threatens biodiversity.<br />Example: <br />Corn/wheat production in USA<br />
  5. 5. Tree plantations (monoculture “forest”) as CO2 sinks (due to energy sources) to secure compliance to climate change initiatives <br />Example:<br />Eucalyptus in Ecuador<br />
  6. 6. Biodiversity loss drives natural park creation which interferes with energy reserves representing a geopolitical power struggle<br />Example:<br />Ecuador, Alaska Nature Preserve<br />
  7. 7. Mono-cropping for energy production leads to issues of food security due agricultural displacement<br />Exp:<br />Sugarcane in Angola, corn in Mexico<br />India, Brazil biofuel production causes bio.loss<br />
  8. 8. Wars over energy sources destroy land and water sources which threaten biodiversity<br />Example: <br />DMZ between N and S Korea most diverse <br />
