164: Climate of Conflict



War has been a constant in the human experience throughout recorded history. Does that mean that it is inevitable? John Horgan suggests that it is not. Scientific findings indicate that human nature does not compel humans to go to war, but Gwynne Dyer joins John and KMO in the C-Realm to discuss how climate change and efforts to deal with it are likely to lead to armed conflict in the near future.

Gwynne Dyer's book Climate Wars was presented in a three part series on the CBC Radio program Ideas.

You can find John Horgan's New Scientist article, Winning the ultimate battle: How humans could end war, here: http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg20327151.500-winning-the-ultimate-battle-how-humans-could-end-war.html?full=true

great show
One of the best topical shows I've heard in a while, bar none. A high caliber conversation between Gwynne Dyer and John Horgan is a rare treat, and what me and my media cohorts would term, "a Great Get."

My only critique is that you should "ID" the Dwight D. Eisenhower speech within the show, or in the notes:

Mr. Horgan has a sporadic video blog appearance with a Santa Fe, NM Science writer named George Johnson (whom I admire) on Bloggingheads.tv

Thanks kmo.
