The next war won’t be over conflicts in Asia or the Middle East–between India and Pakistan or Israel and the Palestinians. If history is any guide, it will be a result of climate change. Examples from the past include the Thirty Years’ War between Europe’s most powerful countries, which last for years during the some of Europe’s coldest decades. It soon went from bad to worse as the Plague arrived.
The next war may be when China tries to reclaim Taiwan OR it may be when Russia tries to reclaim the Arctic. Russia’s defense minister says the military will deploy two army brigades–of thousands of soldiers each–to help protect the nation’s interests in the Arctic. Russia, the US, Canada, Denmark and Norway have all been trying to claim parts of the Arctic, which are believed to hold up to a quarter of the Earth’s undiscovered oil and gas.
