Alarm Bells of Climate Change are Clanging Around the Globe

From the UN to the US, Climate Change is discussed, debated and derided by the ill-informed in politics every day as the Debate about Global Warming rises to a threatening crescendo. Climate Change strikes a high level of fear into the heart of politicians as they struggle to catch up with the People.

The General-Secretary of the UN, Ban Ki-Moon, wrote out his bleak rationale that the effects of Climate Change are the root cause for Darfur's ravages of war for control of Sub-Saharan's remaining resources. On July 10, the Economics and Social Council of the United Nations adopted A Declaration, which:
called for the widest possible cooperation by all countries to develop an effective and appropriate response to climate change.
Wars over dwindling resources are part of military planning. Most think of oil, but everyone should consider water as the population escalates to 8 billion people and the amount of fresh water decreases.

Water Wars: Privatization, Pollution, and Profit by Vandana Shiva is a must have or read resource book on water and what is occurring with the world's food supply. Her bio and other books are listed at the link.
