Personal Security, War And Global Climate Mesh

 As recently seen in posts on Ogilvy And Global Climate Change Awareness and Darfur Atrocity Awareness, the meshverse can be a tool for addressing complex problems.  In order for people to grasp the magnitude of many of today’s global challenges, there have to be tools for organizing, analyzing and communicating information about the problems and potential solutions. No tool is  perfect and tools can be misused and abused but the scope of problems this planet faces are growing as rapidly as the meshverse and we need better ways of resolving them. War as a means of conflict resolution has gone beyond being ineffective to becoming increasingly counterproductive. As the environmental impact of war increases, the impact of global climate change leads to more war

 Global warming poses a “serious threat to America’s national security” and the U.S. likely will be dragged into fights over water and other shortages, top retired military leaders warn in a new report.

The report says that in the next 30 to 40 years there will be wars over water, increased hunger instability from worsening disease and rising sea levels and global warming-induced refugees. “The chaos that results can be an incubator of civil strife, genocide and the growth of terrorism,” the 35-page report predicts.

This in my view goes beyond the security of nations(let alone just the U.S. ) since each one of us has only one planet to live on. Addressing global concerns is in the interest of personal security for everyone.
