Happy (belated!) New year from Dragon Line blog!

Apologies for the longer than anticipated break – you know what it’s like during the festive period! Anyway, to start off the New Year, I’ve found another article here by a former US marine about how Climate Change should be treated as a major security threat for America. This is especially important, as he mentions America’s dependence on crude oil as being very much at the centre of the problem (though, there’s no mention of the Peak Oil problem here for some reason).

The author, Jonathan Murray, suggests that the worst effects of climate change will be felt in places where there is already major instability – such as Yemen or Somalia. This instability and a perceived need to conserve US energy security will probably see troops being deployed ever more increasingly (Peak Oil could compound this!)

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
