Brent Stop the War and Disseminus have invited
Dr Nafeez Ahmad to speak on Environmental Crisis and the links to War
A decade and a half into the 21st century, humanity faces a wide range of interconnected and overlapping crises - environmental, economic, energy, as well as concerning food, water, poverty, ideology, psychology, and culture. These crises are escalating. What is their link to war, violence and terrorism? This meeting will explore the range of potential scenarios for what a business-as-usual future holds for the human species and Planet Earth, the deep structural causes of our current predicament, and the opportunities for radical social transformation.

He writes for The Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/profile/nafeez-ahmed for a profile and a link to his Earth Insight blog on the geopolitics of environmental, energy and economic crises.
