Implantable RFID chips capable of remotely killing

Positioned as the solution to eliminating identify theft, lost wallets and purses, and a host of other information breaches, the all-inclusive implantable RFID tracking chip is gaining momentum for widespread implementation.
Recent news reports indicate that an RFID tracking chip capable of killing humans (that presumably do not comply with rogue government demands) has already been invented.

There is simply no denying the fact that "the powers that be" are working towards micro-chipping all of humanity. Countless news reports, including those compiled in the following YouTube clip, openly speak of microchips designed for implant into human skin: see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yl2LMmwteCA
But what many people do not realize is that this technology exists now, and has already been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in humans. Not only do these chips "silently and invisibly" store and transmit personal data, but they can also be encoded to perform a variety of other functions (http://arstechnica.com/old/content/2004/10/4305.ars).

Beginning at 00:42, the YouTube clip contains a segment on a "killer" RFID microchip that, upon being remotely triggered, can send a lethal dose of cyanide into a person's skin. The FOX News reporter that introduces the segment can be heard saying that the chip "will kill you if you get out of line" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yl2LMmwteCA).
Later in the YouTube compilation around 04:45, Chairman and CEO of Applied Digital Solutions Scott Silverman, who happens to have a "VeriChip" in his own arm, promotes the technology as useful and beneficial during a CNBC segment. Several of the hosts can be heard questioning Silverman about the "slippery slope" of the technology, and how it could be used to control the world's populations.

The PositiveID Corporation, which produces the VeriChip, has also announced that the Israeli Military recently ordered implantable microchips for its soldiers. The stated reason for this is that the chips will supposedly aid in "disaster preparedness and emergency management" (http://www.rfidnews.org/2011/10/11/positiveid-receives-verichip-order-for-israeli-military).
Assuming that they will only be used for the benign-sounding purposes that their proponents claim (which is highly unlikely), human microchips are a privacy nightmare that is much worse than credit cards and cash. Because human microchips transmit information via RFID and GPS signals, criminals can easily hijack personal information by intercepting transmission signals.

Market Research

The International Affairs Institute (IAI) and OCP Policy Center recently launched a new book: The Future of Natural Gas. Markets and Geopolitics.

Cover_242-width

The book is an in-depth analysis of some of the fastest moving gas markets, attempting to define the trends of a resource that will have a decisive role in shaping the global economy and modelling the geopolitical dynamics in the next decades.

Some of the top scholars in the energy sector have contributed to this volume such as Gonzalo Escribano, Director Energy and Climate Change Programme, Elcano Royal Institute, Madrid, Coby van der Linde, Director Clingendael International Energy Programme, The Hague and Houda Ben Jannet Allal, General Director Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie (OME), Paris.
