9780745336961: The Secure and the Dispossessed: How the Military and Corporations Are Shaping a Climate-Changed World (Transnational Institute)

While ecologists and environmentalists view the melting of the polar ice caps as a dire and threatening effect of climate change, many business and political leaders see emerging opportunity, as a result of newly accessible oil and gas fields. As the contributors to The Secure and the Dispossessed reveal, the ongoing environmental transitions raise a host of complicated questions about global assets and resources as well as dangerous opportunism.
 
The Secure and the Dispossessed gathers together essays by high-profile journalists, academics, and activists, including Christian Parenti, Nafeez Ahmed, and policy analyst Oscar Reyes. They offer a close and critical guide to questions about climate change, showing how they converge with questions about international security and global economic power, as new natural resources become available. This book is an essential guide to the key environmental and political debates which will shape future policies and elections: how managing the world’s supply of oil and gas can be squared with the environmental impact of our continued reliance on those very same fossil fuels.

About the Author:

Nick Buxton is communications manager for the Transnational Institute. Ben Hayes works for the civil liberties organization Statewatch and is a fellow of the Transnational Institute.

Review:

“We're at a crucial moment. We can deal with the climate crisis either as a moment to build new global unity, or to further divide the planet between wealthy, profiteering elites and everyone else. This book will help you understand the possibilities, and hopefully move you to join the fight for justice.”
(Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature)

"If you want further evidence of the elite insanity that is driving military and corporate interests to perceive the climate catastrophe as an opportunity to extend their control over people and resources and to maximise profits while doing so, then you do not need to go past this book. In nauseatingly documented detail, the authors clearly spell out the challenges we face in resisting elite-driven violence while also intelligently responding to a crisis of unprecedented magnitude. For this reason, The Secure and the Dispossessed is invaluable."
  (Counterpunch)

“A tremendous book that shows how the few intend to profit from climate change and how the many can stop it happening.”
(John Vidal, Environment Editor, Guardian)

“This book is a must read for anyone concerned to secure ecological futures for more than just the rich and powerful few in the global system.”
(Simon Dalby, Balsillie School of International Affairs)

“As this riveting analysis makes clear, climate change will have winners as well as losers.  This is far too important to be left to the scientists.” (Fred Pearce, environment consultant, New Scientist)

“Among the books that attempt to model the coming century, this one stands out for its sense of plausibility and danger. It examines several current trends in our responses to climate change, which if combined would result in a bad result, a kind of oligarchic police state, imposed in the hope of avoiding chaos by extending capitalist hegemony. This will not work, and yet powerful forces are advocating for it rather than imagining and working for a more just, resilient, and democratic way forward. All the processes analyzed here are already happening now, making this book a crucial contribution to our cognitive mapping and our ability to form a better plan.”
(Kim Stanley Robinson)

Descripción PLUTO PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. While the world s scientists and many of its inhabitants despair at the impact of climate change, corporate and military leaders see nothing but opportunities. For them, melting ice caps mean newly accessible fossil fuels, borders to be secured from climate refugees , social conflicts to be managed and more failed states in which to intervene. They are securing their assets at the expanse of the planet and its inhabitants. The Secure and the Dispossessed looks at these deadly approaches with a critical eye. It also considers the flip-side: that the legitimacy of the elite is under unprecedented pressure - from resistance by communities to resource grabs to those creating new ecological and socially just models for managing our energy, food and water. Topics covered include geoengineering, militarism, refugee protection, greenwashing and the agricultural crisis among others. Adaptation and resilience to a climate-changed world is desperately needed, but the form it will take will affect all of our futures. Nº de ref. de la librería AAZ9780745336961

Descripción Pluto Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The Secure and the Dispossessed: How the Military and Corporations are Shaping a Climate-Changed World, Nick Buxton, Ben Hayes, While the world's scientists and many of its inhabitants despair at the unfolding impacts of climate change, corporate and military leaders see nothing but challenges and opportunities. For them, melting ice caps mean newly accessible fossil fuels, borders to be secured from 'climate refugees', social conflicts to be managed, and more failed states in which to intervene. With one eye on the scientific evidence and the other on their global assets and supply chains, powerful elites are giving increasing thought as to how to maintain control in a world gradually reshaped by climactic extremes. The Secure and the Dispossessed looks at these deadly approaches with a highly critical eye. It also considers the flip-side: that the legitimacy of the global elite is under unprecedented pressure - from resistance by communities to resource grabs to those creating new ecological and socially just models for managing our energy, food and water. Adaptation and resilience to a climate-changed world is desperately needed, but the form it will take will affect all of our futures. This collection of authoritative essays by high profile journalists, academics and activists will shape this most important of debates for years to come. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780745336961
