Open Mic Wednesday - An adult bookwrap today

Amazing technology, amazing missions, amazing treasures hidden deep under the Arctic Ocean.  May the unveiling and distribution of this underwater wealth be divided equally and fairly among the vying countries involved so the whole world will benefit from its  rich abundance.  May Cold War 111 never become a reality.


“W. Craig Reed’s explosive book COLD WAR III is, in a word, chilling. Reed’s insights on the coming global conflict over Arctic resources is as timely as it is important. Everyone in Washington, D.C. and the Pentagon needs to read this book. And you should, too—before it’s too late.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Sixth Extinction

About the book...

This book is a real eye-opener and a must read.  As we go about our every day lives there is a massive undertaking to conquer the last frontier of our earth...the great Arctic.  With it's rich deposits of oil, gas and other minerals it is a gem ready for the taking.  

"The difficulty arises because there is a large handful of nations that have legitimate claims to parts of the area.  Their claims sometime conflict.  Canada and Denmark - neither a notedly aggressive country--are becoming quite adamant about protecting their economic rights.  None of these countries is willing to sleep while another country grabs all the potential profits."

The Arctic nations are readying with their military strength to defend their claims of the territory and the resources if the situation demands so.  Hence the Arctic nations are building the military infrastructures like ships, ship breakers, airports, and submarines. They also have increased the combat readiness of the troops by having frequent military exercises in the high North.  

Another factor that has accelerated the militarization of the Arctic is the opening of the shipping lanes in both sides of the Arctic, the North Sea Route in the Russian Arctic and the North West Passage in the Canadian Arctic.  With the climate change causing shrinking ice these shipping lanes become navigable during the summer months which may become major transport lanes in the future. Both Canada and Russia want to control these important sea lanes of commerce. 

Reed exposes Russian President Vladimir Putin's ultimate plan to dominate world resources and why the invasion of the Ukraine is only the beginning.  He also reveals details about another scientific breakthrough created by the U.S. Navy that could defeat Putin's plans and mitigate climate change.  The world leaders need to act now and take a stand so this great wealth can be shared equally for the good of all nations involved.  

"All this would lead to habitat loss and fragmentation from infrastructure and industrial development, pollution and toxins, over harvesting, and invasive species infestations for species like Polar bears, etc.  This would also indirectly affect the Traditional ways of life of arctic people."  

This book is both riveting and spine-chilling.  I enjoyed it immensely and couldn't put it down.
