Off to a family wedding

I will be Internet deprived from Wednesday to Sunday, with limited opportunities to post comments. As a reward for your patience, I will post two book reviews on my return.

I am currently reading Plows, Plagues & Petroleum, by William Ruddiman. In his view, humans have been influenced climate change for the last 8,000 years. He has some strong arguments for human caused global warming.

My next read is Blue Print for Action by Thomas P.M. Barnett. This is his follow up action plan to the Pentagon’s New Map, which examines strategic issues the military must address in the transition from a Cold War focus to the War on Terror. Barnett is quite popular with the mid level military planners, less so with the Cold Warrior Generals and Admirals.
