David Allan Adams, U.S. Navy (Retired): Since the end of World War II, the U.S. armed forces have proved largely inept at exercising military power as an instrument of national policy. Retired Navy Admiral James Stavridis concedes that “we have become less successful over the past decades, beginning with the failures in Vietnam and continuing to the frustrations today in Iraq and Afghanistan.” The cause of these military struggles, Harlan Ullman claims, is an inability of the nation’s political leaders to think in coherent strategic terms. Similar problems exist with coherent energy planning.
Pamela Das, Richard Horton, The Lancet: For decades, pollution and its harmful effects on people’s health, the environment, and the planet have been neglected both by governments and the international development community. Pollution is the largest environmental cause of disease and death in the world today, responsible for an estimated 9 million premature deaths in 2015. 92% of all pollution-related mortality is seen in low-income and middle-income countries.1 A new Lancet Commission on pollution and health aims to confront and overturn this urgent predicament. The substantial health and economic costs of pollution globally can no longer be ignored.
