In Pursuit of Prosperity: U.S. Foreign Policy in an Era of Natural Resource ScarcityEdited by Dav...
In this seminal study of nine countries and regions of strategic importance, David Reed and a team of experts identify emerging threats to U.S. national security and prosperity caused by global climate change and natural resource scarcity.

Reed, who is senior vice president for policy at the World Wildlife Fund-U.S., uses an evidence-based approach to recommend policy changes that respond to global environmental change. Running through the book is the thesis that changes to the environments of neighboring or partner countries proportionately increase threats to U.S. security and prosperity.

Adm. Mike Mullen, 17th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, writes in the book’s foreword that this book “constitutes what we in the military would call a ‘red flare’ – a bright warning, fired to alert all of us to an acute and present danger that requires urgent attention and mitigating action.”
