    • Blood Boils Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2009 • Climate has been a major driver of armed conflict in Africa • Future warming is likely to increase the number of deaths from war • Strife arises when the food supply is scarce in warm conditions • 400,000 extra deaths in African conflicts by 2030 • Human costs are likely to be staggering
    • Peak Petroleum
    • The Hirsch Report • World oil peaking is going to happen, and will likely be “abrupt and revolutionary”. • Oil peaking will adversely affect global economies, particularly those most dependent on oil. • Effective mitigation will be dependent on the implementation of mega-projects and mega-changes at the maximum possible rate. • Government intervention will be required, but economic upheaval is not inevitable. • Scenarios: 0, 10, 20 years before peak.
