Investment Global Resources
- (global resource) A resource accessible from anywhere within a CS or TSAF collection and whose identity is known throughout the collection. A shared file system file pool is an example of a global resource. Contrast with local resource, private resource, and system resource.
- Resources that have effect on the entire system. By default, they are all enabled in the system. Disabling global resources will make them unavailable for use by all new customers under all plans, including first hand customers, resellers and their end users.
- the commitment of something other than money (time, energy, or effort) to a project with the expectation of some worthwhile result; "this job calls for the investment of some hard thinking"; "he made an emotional investment in the work"
- outer layer or covering of an organ or part or organism
- The action or process of investing money for profit or material result
- An act of devoting time, effort, or energy to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result
- A thing that is worth buying because it may be profitable or useful in the future
- investing: the act of investing; laying out money or capital in an enterprise with the expectation of profit
Resource Wars: The New Landscape of Global Conflict With a New Introduction by the Author
From the oilfields of Saudi Arabia to the Nile delta, from the shipping lanes of the South China Sea to the pipelines of Central Asia, Resource Wars looks at the growing impact of resource scarcity on the military policies of nations.
International security expert Michael T. Klare argues that in the early decades of the new millennium, wars will be fought not over ideology but over access to dwindling supplies of precious natural commodities. The political divisions of the Cold War, Klare asserts, have given way to a global scramble for oil, natural gas, minerals, and water. And as armies throughout the world define resource security as a primary objective, widespread instability is bound to follow, especially in those areas where competition for essential materials overlaps with long-standing territorial and religious disputes. In this clarifying view, the recent explosive conflict between the United States and Islamic extremism stands revealed as the predictable consequence of consumer nations seeking to protect the vital resources they depend on.
A much-needed assessment of a changed world, Resource Wars is a compelling look at warfare in an era of rampant globalization and intense economic competition.
The Meaning of Water
Local Meanings of Irrigation Water: property rights and irrigation in Australia and S.E. Spain presented by Denise Galvin (Universidad de Alicante)
Physical and socio-economic changes during recent decades have altered the spatial distribution of global water resources. In areas where there was once considered to be an abundance of water, superficial and groundwater resources are now either over-exploited or contaminated. To resolve this dilemma, many nations are in process of reforming their water industries. In many countries, the irrigation industry is often the first to under-go reform because it is where a high percentage of a nation's water resources are diverted. There are many examples where the reform of this industry is directed by a new philosophy based on the re-allocation of water rights in the hope that this will support increased user participation. Documented experience points are not much more than a cacophony of environmental expert discources based on misleading theory which blocks inflitration by those who manage the resource at the local level.

From Michael Klare, the renowned expert on natural resource issues, an invaluable account of a new and dangerous global competition
The world is facing an unprecedented crisis of resource depletion—a crisis that goes beyond "peak oil" to encompass shortages of coal and natural gas, copper and cobalt, water and arable land. With all of the Earth's habitable areas already in use, the desperate hunt for supplies has now reached the final frontiers. The Race for What's Left takes us from the Arctic to war zones to deep ocean floors, from a Russian submarine planting the country's flag under the North Pole to the large-scale buying up of African farmland by Saudi Arabia and other nations.
As Michael T. Klare explains, this frenzy of extreme exploration and acquisition carries grave consequences. With resource extraction growing more complex, the environmental risks are becoming increasingly severe: the Deepwater Horizon disaster is only a preview of the dangers to come. At the same time, the intense search for dwindling supplies is igniting new border disputes, raising the likelihood of military confrontation. The only way out, Klare argues, will be to alter our consumption patterns altogether—a crucial task that will be the greatest challenge of the coming century.
