Peter Brecke was quoted in the New Scientist September 15 article “World Hunger Is on the Rise Again Due to Climate Change and War.” Brecke is a professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech. 

Excerpt:

“The emphasis on making communities more resilient in conflict situations, while laudable, avoids the key problem,” says Peter Brecke at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, who has also explored climate change’s historical impacts on conflict. “That problem is the inability of political institutions to resolve competing political demands, leaving groups believing that conflict is the only viable alternative.”
