The Real Reasons For This Conflict With Iran

January 8th, 2020 | by Johnna Crider

If Iran and the US go to war, no one will win in this conflict. Not the US, not Iran, and definitely not Iraq, which has been placed right in the middle of this war between the US and Iran. People cheering for war and saying that "Trump will wipe Iran off the map" do not realize that it's not about Iran or Trump. It's more than that — it's about power, and the battle for this power or control will not care about casualties of war


Climate Catastrophe Will Bring War & Unprecedented Immigration — Already Is

October 12th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Global warming and climate change get a lot of attention -- well, not in the mainstream media, but among niche media outlets like CleanTechnica. However, whether in the mainstream media or in niche publications, some of the big challenges of a quickly changing climate are not often highlighted, and I'm quite confident that most people haven't considered them at all


Saudi Crown Prince Warns Of Threat To Global Oil Supply

September 30th, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has told the BBC that if a war was to break out between Iran and Saudi Arabia, oil prices could rise up to "unimaginably high numbers." He says this is possible if the world doesn't try to deter Iran, and that more escalation will threaten the world's interests. "Oil supplies will be disrupted and oil prices will jump to unimaginably high numbers that we haven't seen in our lifetimes."


Hurricane Florence Is Part Of What Al Gore Got Right In An Inconvenient Truth

September 14th, 2018 | by Michael Barnard

As Hurricane Florence surges ashore in the Carolinas, it's worth casting our minds back a dozen years to An Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore and his documentary crew attempted to mobilize the world around the imminent and pressing challenge of global warming then and since. His messages included the threat of increased severity and frequency of Atlantic hurricanes, something which is looking more and more prescient over the past few years of unusual storms

Warming Cycles Will Trigger Civil Wars, New Study Suggests

September 4th, 2011 | by Susan Kraemer

Are we getting more cranky and fractious as the planet heats up? It certainly seems so. The US is only warmer by just a few degrees on average over the last 30 years, and yet the culture seems to have become a lot angrier than thirty years ago. But that's just one person's subjective sense of what's happening. To see if there is a connection between rising temperatures and rising bellicosity, an interdisciplinary team of researchers at Columbia University's Earth Institute counted tropical conflicts and compared the timing to the El Niño warming cycles. Coauthor Mark Cane, a climate scientist at Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, was among the earliest to predict the rhythm of El Niño/El Niña cycles, in the 1980s. That discovery is now used by organizations around the world to plan agriculture and relief services. The higher temperatures during El Niño years double the risk of civil wars across 90 affected tropical countries, the authors found.
