India Could Save Lives By Reducing Air Pollution
Air quality is not just an environmental issue but also a public health issue. Yale University’s 2012 Environmental Performance Index (EPI) ranks India last (out of 132 countries) with a performance score of 3.73 (out of 100) on the effects of air pollution on human health. Air pollution is the fifth leading cause of death in [&hellip

Two Thoughts About Food Security
First, food security contributes to national security. I guess the best way to illustrate this is to give a real world example concerning the case of Egypt and China. Let’s look at Troy Sternberg’s essay, “Chinese Drought, Wheat, and the Egyptian Uprising: How a Localized Hazard Became Globalized,” which can be found in a series [&hellip

Violence Fueled by Africa’s Environmental Dilemma
The severe environmental situation discussed in the previous blog is playing a role in the instigation of violence across Africa.

China’s Water Woes Affect its Neighbors
Although China’s trade policies, currency, and territorial disputes in the South China Sea have garnered much attention as of late by those concerned with regional security, there is another pressing problem in China that is slowly receiving more attention from outside observers: China’s growing water crisis.

Potent Greenhouse Gas Should Be Brought To Market
When it comes to greenhouse gases, perhaps the most infamous is carbon dioxide (CO2), which is emitted by the burning of fossil fuels. However, methane is extremely potent and enters the atmosphere by a wide variety of sources, both anthropogenic and natural in origin.

The State of Global Water Security
  From the lens of NASA’s space satellite Terra, Earth is a luscious blue gem, wrapped in one of the universe’s rarest resource, liquid water. Observing from up in the outer reaches of the ionosphere, one would be inclined to assume that water is a boundless resource of Earth—and assuredly, as long as her atmosphere [&hellip
