Fascinating lecture from Dr. Christian Parenti warning of failed states as a consequence of climate change and that taking a hard military stance is the wrong way to tackle this issue.

Parenti argues that this incipient "climate fascism"--a political hardening of wealthy states-- is bound to fail. The struggling states of the developing world cannot be allowed to collapse, as they will take other nations down as well. Instead, we must work to meet the challenge of climate-driven violence with a very different set of sustainable economic and development policies.
