Never before has the quest to balance the needs of people, the environment, and the economy been so important. While sustainability has been widely taken up by governments and business, the world has continued to move in increasingly unsustainable directions, from continued dependence on fossil energy to rising greenhouse gas emissions, and erosion of biodiversity. We know what the right thing to do is, but somehow we cannot make the changes that are needed, and so we continue with business as usual, producing business-as-usual results.

Canadian Paul E Hardisty has spent 25 years working all over the world as an engineer, hydrologist and environmental scientist. He has roughnecked on oil rigs in Texas, explored for gold in the Arctic, mapped geology in Eastern Turkey where he was befriended by PKK rebels , and rehabilitated water wells in the wilds of Africa.
He was in Ethiopia in as the Mengistu regime fell, and was bumped from one of the last flights out of Addis Ababa by bureaucrats and their families fleeing the rebels. He lives in Western Australia.
Author: Paul E. Claymore Straker returns in another gripping, page-turning, socially conscious thriller, with more at stake than ever On the surface a rip-roaring, fiery blast of a read, while underneath lies an observation of the jarring discord that can be found in the beating heart of Africa.
Set in we begin with two acts of astonishing violence, Claymore Straker and Rania LaTour begin a desperate hunt for answers that leads to a brutal terrorist act in this action-packed ride. In fact, my not knowing the characters may well have increased the tension as I lived so thoroughly in each and every moment. I will though, be searching out the first three novels, as I desperately want to fill in the background story.
I enjoyed the separation Paul E. Hardisty created, between the letters from Rania, and immediacy of the story with Clay, I could feel the gulf of distance between them, yet events continued to tie them together. Gripping disclosures reveal why Clay was discharged as a paratrooper some fifteen years earlier, in , when he was deployed to combat communist rebels who threatened to overthrow white apartheid. Strikingly sophisticated, this top-notch thriller teems with conspiratorial intrigue and pulse-quickening action drawn from shocking real-life events.
Claymore Straker is a fugitive with a price on his head. Wanted by the CIA for acts of terrorism he did not commit, his best friend has just been murdered and Rania, the woman he loves, has disappeared. Betrayed by those closest to him, he must flee the sanctuary of his safe house in Cornwall and track her down. As his pursuers close in, Clay follows Rania to Istanbul and then to Cyprus, where he is drawn into a violent struggle between the Russian mafia, Greek Cypriot extremists, and Turkish developers cashing in on the tourism boom.
As the island of love descends into chaos, and the horrific truth is unveiled, Clay must call on every ounce of skill and endurance to save Rania and put an end to the unimaginable destruction being wrought in the name of profit. Gripping, exhilarating and, above all, frighteningly realistic,. A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. Extremely topical, what with its principal protagonist, oil engineer Claymore Straker, in flight from a dodgy past, being kidnapped by Islamic terrorists and soon finding himself caught between opposing forces intent on discovering why the village of Al Urush is affected by a deadly, unidentifiable sickness.
This debut thriller by a Canadian author with a wealth of experience in the Middle East and the oil industry has a ring of truth, but the author's deep knowledge of the settings never slows down the non-stop action, with distant echoes of a more-moral minded Jack Reacher or Jason Bourne.
A forceful first novel by a writer not afraid of weighty issues and visibly in love with the beauty of the Yemen and desert landscapes his protagonists travel through. Never before has the quest to balance the needs of people, the environment, and the economy been so important.
While sustainability has been widely taken up by governments and business, the world has continued to move in increasingly unsustainable directions, from continued dependence on fossil energy to rising greenhouse gas emissions, and erosion of biodiversity.
We know what the right thing to do is, but somehow we cannot make the changes that are needed, and so we continue with business as usual, producing business-as-usual results. Based on more than fifteen years of research and practice, Environmental and Economic Sustainability introduces the environmental and economic sustainability assessment EESA , a new way to make decisions that meets the challenges of the 21st century.

The author demonstrates how to apply EESA using examples across a number of major industries, including petroleum, mining, and public utilities, and covering key issues such as water, greenhouse gases, waste, contaminated sites, and renewable energy. Case studies Management of produced water in the oil and gas industry in the Middle East Management of wastewater in a water utility in Australia Power generation and carbon management in an energy utility in Australia Remediation of contaminated gas works in the UK Energy savings and carbon management in heavy oil processing Ultimately, the solutions to problems of the 21st century will come from understanding the tremendous value that the environment provides, and reflecting.
Author: Paul. There is most definitely a darkness to be found, some heart in mouth moments too, yet this centres on family, the things left unsaid and hidden. It took a little while for me to settle in, to find my way, yet once I had, I found myself completely and utterly hooked. Two stories emerge and twist together… as Ethan finds his own life imploding, the manuscript travels alongside his story, revealing, testing, pushing. With his work as an engineer and scientist Paul E. Hardisty has travelled some of the worlds most remote areas, living with regimes and the chaos before war, all of his experience can be felt as the manuscript comes to vivid life.
