Michael Klare: The Race For What's Left
The World is facing an unprecedented crisis of resource depletion  a crisis that goes beyond "peak oil" to encompass shortages of industrial metals, critical minerals, water, and arable land. With all of the earth's habitable areas already in use, the desperate hunt for new supplies is forcing governments and corporations to the final resource frontiers, from the Arctic to war zones to deep ocean floors. Exactly what happens as competition grows increasingly ferocious for the drastically dwindling supplies needed to run our cars, power our homes, manufacture our machines, grow our food?

This frenzy of extreme exploration is not only threatening the environment but also igniting new border disputes, threatening military confrontation. The only way to avoid disaster, argues Klare, will be to drastically alter our patterns of consumption  a crucial task that is already the greatest challenge of this century.  

Michael Klare is the author of fourteen books, including Resource Wars and Blood and Oil: The Dangers and Consequences of America's Growing Petroleum Dependency; Rogue States and Nuclear Outlaws; Rising Powers and Shrinking Planet. As well as being Defense Correspondent for The Nation magazine, he is a contributor to Foreign Affairs,  the Los Angeles Times, Current History, Mother Jones, Harper's, Scientific American, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and TomDispatch.org.  At present Michael Klare is Director of the Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies.

Philip Maldari, veteran KPFA Radio broadcast journalist, hosts a popular Sunday Morning show on 94.1FM from 9 to 11 AM.
