The Race for What's Left: The Global Scramble for the World's Last Resources

Description

The world is facing an unprecedented crisis of resource depletion and the political and environmental risks are becoming increasingly severe as governments and companies search for the planet's final supplies. Can we change our consumption patterns and find a way out?

From a Russian submarine planting the country's flag on the North Pole seabed to the large-scale buying up of African farmland by Saudi Arabia, China, and other food-importing nations, Professor Michael T. Klare gives an in-depth account of the final frontiers of resource extraction.

Speaker: Michael T. Klare
