Extract:

Beyond Terror - The Truth About the Real Threats to Our World

  • Terrorism is not the greatest threat to the world.
  • The 'war on terror' is failing and is actually increasing the likelihood of more terrorist attacks.
  • Climate change is a major security concern; fortunately we have the means to address it.
  • Nuclear power cannot help us combat climate change or meet our energy needs safely.
  • Our quest for resources, especially oil, is causing conflict and insecurity.
  • There is a direct link between foreign policy, marginalisation and political violence.
  • The development and spread of WMD by our own governments puts us all at risk.
  • We need a radical rethink of security policies in order to avoid a highly unstable future.
  • There is still time to make a difference.
