Analysis of US threats against Iraq

In November 2005, Klare alleged that a major factor motivating the George W. Bush administration to attack Iraq would be its desire to distract attention from domestic political difficulties and to increase popularity for the President. US popular support for Bush increased by about 10% when the US invaded Iraq in 2003 and only dropped back to its previous level several months later.[1]

Extreme energy

Klare originated the concept of "extreme energy", techniques for the production of energy which share characteristics of being environmentally damaging or risky. Examples include exploitation of oil sands and shale oil, deepwater drilling, Hydraulic fracturing, and Mountaintop removal mining.[2][3][4]
