Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing both the cover-up and unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak. Told from the perspective of those who were there and say what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours through people's iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, webcams, and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
National security policymakers point to climate change as a key trend that will shape the current and future global security environment, but do not always have the scientific information they need to plan and prepare for the security challenges it may cause.

Promoting the dialogue climate change and the Quadrennial Defense Review by Christine Parthemore( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Congress required in the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that the Department of Defense consider the effects of climate change on all of its "facilities, capabilities and missions," and, perhaps most notably, it called for the Department to incorporate such concerns into the next Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR). When the QDR is sent to Congress on February 1st, it will offer an unusual opportunity to shift how the national security community views climate change. In June 2009, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) launched its "Promoting the Dialogue" project to study how the Department of Defense was incorporating climate change and its effects on U.S. security into the QDR process. In this working paper, Christine Parthemore and Will Rogers provide observations about how the QDR process addressed the 2008 NDAA requirement and some potential outcomes of that process
Sustaining security how natural resources influence national security by Christine Parthemore( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the 21st century, the security of nations will depend increasingly on the security of natural resources, or "natural security." The global economy, developing countries and local economies throughout the world all rely on the availability of potable water, arable land, fish stocks, biodiversity, energy, minerals and other renewable and nonrenewable resources to meet the rising expectations of a growing world population. Yet the availability of these resources is by no means assured. It is time for the national security community to recognize the growing importance of resource degradation to national interests. The stakes are clear: in many countries and regions with high significance for U.S. security and foreign policy interests, environmental degradation could directly undermine economic and political goals; conversely, preventing or remediating that degradation could serve as a valuable way of bolstering security. Ultimately, expanding the definition of national security to include the threats addressed here is not a matter of choice. This change is inevitable. But nations can choose either to react to such change as it happens or to shape the way such change unfolds and to prepare the best possible response

On the front lines climate change and the combatant commands by Herbert E Carmen( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the U.S. military responds to the national security implications of climate change, the regional combatant commands will make the operational and tactical level decisions about how to adapt. In every region of the world, the changing climate will influence political, social, economic, environmental and cultural trends in ways that could destabilize societies or exacerbate conflicts. These developments will present new challenges to combatant commanders and U.S. military and civilian officials operating in their respective areas of responsibility (AOR). In this working paper, the authors focus on the six geographic combatant commands as a way to address the effects of climate change and related energy security challenges on U.S. national security interests in regions across the globe
Promoting the dialogue climate change and America's air forces by W Rogers( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Climate change could have significant implications for U.S. air missions, which are critical to America's ability to protect the homeland, project power and ensure access to the global commons. In the short term, the Air Force and Navy are determining how to consider climate change in their energy strategies, both to ensure more dependable access to and more efficient use of fuel, and to meet energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction requirements set by the president, Congress, Department of Defense and state governments. In the mid to long term, climate change has the potential to affect air forces more directly by changing operating and strategic environments. Currently, however, the air forces are split in how they consider the short- and long-term implications of climate change and how they prioritize energy and climate change concerns. In this working paper, the author synthesizes how America's air forces are considering climate change, identifies the role energy concerns play in the services' decision-making calculations and offers recommendations on how to better integrate energy security and climate change concerns into near- and long-term strategic planning
Broadening horizons climate change and the U.S. Armed Forces by Herbert E Carmen( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Climate change holds important consequences for national security and the way the Department of Defense (DOD) does business. Analysts expect changes such as more frequent heat waves, desertification, flooding and extreme weather events. These effects will intertwine with existing political, social, cultural and economic trends, with significant implications for U.S. interests worldwide. Addressing these issues, which are directly linked to the nation's energy challenges, will require the Department of Defense, U.S. armed services and combatant commands to explore how they might plan and adapt, help partner nations around the world adapt, and mitigate climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions. In some cases, such as with improving energy efficiency, solutions will be simple. In others, addressing these issues will require tough trade-offs. In this report, the authors identify many of the key policy questions and trade-offs, and assist in mapping a road ahead that meets U.S. national security needs

Security at sea : the case for ratifying the Law of the Sea Convention by W Rogers( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The United States should ratify the Law of the Sea Convention (LOSC). To date, the United States has protected its maritime interests successfully without ratifying this treaty. However, the rise of modern navies and unconventional security threats are making this approach ever more risky and will increasingly imperil U.S. national security interests. Failure to ratify LOSC will cede to other countries America's ability to shape the interpretation and execution of the convention and protect the provisions that support the existing international order. It will also complicate America's ability to address maritime challenges in the Arctic and South China Sea, inhibit America's ability to drill for oil and gas offshore and allow other countries to lay claim to strategic energy and mineral reserves located in the high seas. The United States can ill afford to continue forgoing LOSC and the benefits that accrue to American interests

Blinded the decline of U.S. earth monitoring capabilities and its consequences for national security by Christine Parthemore( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Networks of satellites, ground-based sensors and unmanned aerial vehicles, the assets America uses to monitor and understand environmental change and its consequences, are going dark. By 2016, only seven of NASA's current 13 earth monitoring satellites are expected to be operational, leaving a crucial information gap that will hinder national security planning. Meanwhile, efforts to prevent this capability gap have been plagued by budget cuts, launch failures, technical deficiencies, chronic delays and poor interagency coordination. Without the information that these assets provide, core U.S. foreign policy and national security interests will be at risk. The United States should act now to address the growing decline of its earth monitoring capabilities. With key satellites aging and new systems failing to launch, the nation's technical capacity to plan effectively for global environmental change is waning rapidly. The effects of climate change, from emerging geopolitical tensions in the Arctic to record-breaking natural disasters in Asia, are already affecting military requirements and other security concerns. U.S. policymakers will continue to make daily decisions based on climate change and environmental information. Accurate and accessible information is required to ensure that those decisions are both effective and efficiently made
