Distinguished Professor, author, and activist Michael Klare spoke at MIT on 9-11-2014 on the subject of climate change and wars. We are now seeing that these two issues are intimately connected. Professor Klare spells this out.

Klare is Five College Professor of Peace and World Security Studies, based at Hampshire College. His most recent book is The Race for What’s Left: The Global Scramble for the World’s Last Resources. He teaches courses on resource politics, contemporary conflict, and world affairs. Klare has written fourteen books and hundreds of essays on these and related topics; a strong believer in the need for public debate and discussion, he also appears regularly in the media and in public to express his views on critical issues. [Much of this description is copied from his website, michaelklare.com.]

The event was organized in view of the upcoming worldwide rally 9-21-2014 to stop global warming AND stop the wars. The USA's rally is scheduled in New York City. In "preliminary" sections posted here, you'll hear a variety of announcements for people considering attending.

After painfully noting MIT's complicity in America's war crimes, and its embrace of Koch family money, Klare presents three basic propositions. Summarized, they are: (1) The climate crisis makes all kinds of conflict more likely; (2) Increased conflict makes a climate solution much more difficult; and (3) The only hope of solution involves promotion of international cooperation in a program of carbon reduction and equitable resource distribution.

Klare emphasizes that solution of the climate crisis is NOT a technical problem. He lists actions that are technically available now. The problem is a lack of political will by those who control the world.

The recording is split up into six pieces, so broadcasters can fit air schedules as required. The pieces are semi-independent. The last piece is the Q&A and Discussion session, which was quite extensive and wide-ranging.
