The Roots of Terrorism

Step 1 Understand What Motivates the Terrorist. Over the course of history, mankind has undergone enormous political and social changes. While some changes have occurred peacefully, it has been more the norm for changes to be precipitated by violence. War, coup d'etat, revolution, riot, and terrorism are all violent means to achieve social change. When we talk about terrorism today, we generally mean individuals who intend to kill themselves, or put themselves at significant risk, in the process of implementing their attacks, although this is not necessarily the case. Suicide terrorists must believe intensely in their causes, but also must be at a position that their life prospects have become so bleak that death is an attractive option. Religious fervor often is employed to sell the terrorists' vision of societal change and make the prospect of death more attractive. The mere existence of suicide terrorists is terrorism in itself. However, we should not forget terrorists with no...

Can Sustainability Prevent Terrorist Attacks

This does not diminish in any way the importance of striving for sustainability, nor does it mean that a sustainable manufacturing process makes no contribution to security. In fact, by virtue of striving to meet societal needs, sustainability addresses terrorism at its roots. Therefore, it is vitally important when proceeding down the road to sustainability to consider the basic needs of those who would wish us harm, because meeting these needs may well turn potential foes into, if not friends, people we can coexist with.


To inhalation anthrax and to several other cases of the less severe cutaneous form of the disease. While it remains to be determined whether these terrorist attacks were related and to identify the perpetrators, they signaled a new era of fear and awareness of biological agents. It should be remembered that bioterrorism and biological warfare have long histories. Plague-infected corpses were catapulted by the Tartars during their siege of Kaffa (in Crimea), resulting in the collapse of the city population due to mortality from the mycobacterium. Smallpox-infected clothing and blankets were reported given to susceptible populations by Spanish conquistadors' during campaigns in South America, by the British during the French-Indian War, and by Confederate-sympathizing manufacturers during the U.S. Civil War. Plague outbreaks were created by the Japanese army after the intentional release of infected fleas over Chinese towns in 1941. The United States military tested biological weapons...

Unknown Bioactive Contaminants

Unknown bioactive contaminants might emerge in the food chain due to climate changes, illegal production methods such as the application of designer steroids and b-agonists in cattle fattening or even because of an act of terrorism. Irrespective of the origin, they will remain undetected and escape from control as long as contaminant monitoring is restricted to a defined list of target substances. At least three different approaches can be distinguished for the detection and mass spectrometric identification of unknown contaminants, a bioactivity-directed, a metabolomics-like and an in silico prediction approach.

Organic Mattermineral Interactions

Organic matter-mineral interactions have been studied intensively since the 1990s because of their role in soil OM turnover, preservation of labile OM in sediments, and role in contaminant sorption processes (Arnarson and Keil 2000 Feng et al. 2005 Kleber et al. 2007 Kang and Xing 2008 Kogel-Knabner et al. 2008). Organic matter associations with mineral phases have resulted in reduced biodegradation of OM, and it is hypothesized that minerals provide OM both physical and chemical protection from biological attack (Baldock and Skjemstad 2000 Chenu and Plante 2006 Mikutta et al. 2007). It is believed that OM may be adsorbed to mineral surfaces via six mechanisms ligand exchange, cation bridges (including water bridges), anion exchange, cation exchange, van der Waals interactions, and hydrophobic bonding (Arnarson and Keil 2000 Tombacz et al. 2004 Feng et al. 2005). Several researchers have shown that solution chemistry (ionic strength, pH, and dominant cation) determines the...

Regulatory Authorities In Health

The front line of emerging health concerns is often a private clinician's practice or hospital emergency department or poison centers. In the United States, health care providers and biological testing laboratories have mandatory reporting obligations for specified lists of infectious diseases. These data are to be sent to the state health department, usually within days of a presumptive diagnosis. Mandatory reporting is a prime form of disease surveillance, and has been bolstered in reaction of fears about bioterrorism. Large health care facilities, such as teaching hospitals, will have their own surveillance systems for infectious disease, and epidemiologists monitoring infections. research, and sets regulations for environmental exposures. Military involvement in outbreaks of infectious diseases with large-scale implications has increased over the last decade, due in part to increased fears of bioterrorism. Specialized offices for particular diseases also exist, such as for mental...

The Physical Environment

And produce about 20 of electrical energy used in the United States. Radionuclides and radiation sources, are used extensively for both diagnostics and therapeutics in medicine, in geology, archeology, and many other scientific and technical disciplines. Because of heightened concerns about terrorism in the United States, x-ray machines to examine luggage, briefcases, and all manner of items people carry with them are present in numerous places, including airports, courthouses, law enforcement facilities, government and public buildings, and any other place considered to be a potential target. Low intensity radiation sources are incorporated into various consumer items, such as smoke detectors.

Polychlorinated Biphenyls

The only known significant route for PCB degradation is biological attack. The participation of microorganisms (e.g., Achromobacter) in the degradation of these chemicals has been recognized since the early 1970s (Ahmed and Focht 1973). Today, two major pathways of biodegradation are known the aerobic one (oxidative degradation), operating with PCBs containing five or fewer Cl atoms and the anaerobic one (reductive dehalogenation), considered the more efficient with more strongly halogenated PCBs (Boyle et al. 1992 Wiegel and Wu 2000 Abraham

General Considerations

During subsequent biological attack in secondary treatment units or in the receiving stream, the emulsifying agents are usually destroyed, and the finely divided oil and grease particles become free to coalesce into larger particles that separate from the water. In activated-sludge plants, the grease often accumulates into grease balls that give an unsightly appearance to the surface of final settling tanks. Both trickling filters and the activated-sludge process are adversely affected by unreasonable amounts of grease that seems to coat the biological solids sufficiently to interfere with oxygen transfer from the liquid to the interior of the living cells. This is sometimes described as a smothering action.

Decay Effects of Pollutants

Occult deposition or precipitation refers to precipitation of cloud fog water. It can be more damaging when compared to dry and wet deposition, providing moisture to activate the chemical attack of dry deposited gases and particles. Fog water has been shown to be an important collector and carrier of pollutants in urban areas as it can concentrate chlorides and sulphates originated from local emission sources (Fassina and Stevan 1992). At seaside areas, seawater sulphate and salts due to sea spray may contribute to the wet and occult deposition on the building materials (Chabas and Jeannette 2001).

Epidemic Control At The Individual Level

Although vaccines have a storied and important place in the prevention of infectious disease, they are difficult to develop since they mimic a complex biological interaction. They have also traditionally taken decades to develop, although new advances in molecular biology are intended to reduce development time. Vaccines involve creating a less pathogenic (or attenuated) form of the infectious agent, often by deleting genes and structures essential for replication. While the molecular mechanisms for creating vaccine strains are well developed, when these attenuated vaccines are used in humans, they may still be capable of producing some disease. Therefore, the same ethical problems as were discussed for mass administration of antibiotics and antivirals also apply to vaccination, namely balancing the benefit to the individual with the benefit to the population. Mass vaccination after release of a bioterrorism agent has been the focus of many studies in recent years, and remains a...

Greening of Petroleum Operations

The efficiency of polymeric membranes decreases with time due to fouling, compaction, chemical degradation, and thermal instability. Because of this limited thermal stability and susceptibility to abrasion and chemical attack, polymeric membranes have found application in separation processes where hot reactive gases are encountered. This has resulted in a shift of interest toward inorganic membranes.

Discrepancy Between L0 Values And Theoretical Oxygen Demand Values

A great deal of BOD work has been done with glucose solutions in a concentration of 300 mg L. Such a solution has a theoretical oxygen demand of 320 mg L. Actual BOD measurements made upon such solutions have yielded 20-day3 and calculated L0 values in the range of 250 to 285, or about 85 percent of the theoretical amount. Thus, it is evident that not all the glucose is completely converted to carbon dioxide and water. The explanation of the discrepancy involves an understanding of the transformations that organic matter undergoes when subjected to biological attack. serve as food material for higher organisms such as protozoans. In each transformation further oxidation occurs, but in the final analysis there remains a certain amount of cellular organic matter that is quite resistant to further biological attack. This is commonly referred to as humus and represents an amount of organic matter corresponding to the discrepancy between the total BOD and the theoretical oxygen demand.


Smallpox, a disease that killed approximately 300 million people worldwide in the twentieth century alone, may have been one of the first microbial agents to be used as a weapon. The only remaining stocks of smallpox are currently being held in secure locations in the United States and Russia. The WHO has recently voted to delay destruction of the remaining smallpox stocks, raising the possibility of their misappropriation and use as weapons. Because immunization against smallpox was halted in 1976 following a successful worldwide eradication program, a significant number of the U.S. population would be at risk from a bioterrorism attack. Although individuals vaccinated prior to 1976


As already noted, anthrax is a concern for use in bioterrorism. Inhalation of anthrax spores is fatal in approximately 75 percent of untreated cases. Anthrax consists of several major virulence factors a polysaccharide capsule and three separate proteins (toxins) that act in concert to disrupt immune defense systems. An anthrax vaccine is available and is generally effective, although it is currently in limited supply (and mostly dedicated to military rather than civilian use). It has also been observed to cause side effects. Antibiotics such as amoxi-cillin, ciprofloxacin, and doxycycline are effective against the inhalation form of anthrax however, they must be administered prior to spore germination, which can occur within 48 to 72 hours following exposure and must be continued for several months. One particular concern is that terrorists may genetically alter common strains of anthrax to encode antibiotic-resistance genes, a situation that could pose significant problems for...

Scott Berger

Given the greatly increased focus on industrial and public security in the years since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, few would disagree that sustainability and security are closely linked. Without much imagination, one could put forward the hypothesis that a sustainable manufacturing process that consumes few, if any, material or energy resources and that uses more benign materials would contain nothing usable by a terrorist. At best, however, this hypothesis is only partially true. At worst, the hypothesis not only misses the point of sustainability almost entirely, it also distracts from the true mission of security. the roots of terrorism

Formation of soils

So far we have discussed the mechanisms and solid products of chemical weathering without precise consideration of the environment in which these reactions occur. While chemical attack of exposed bedrock surfaces can happen, most weathering reactions occur in (or under) soils. We have already noted that the oxidation of soil organic matter causes acidity of natural waters (Section 4.4.2), promoting chemical weathering. This acknowledges the important role of soils in environmental chemistry. So what exactly are soils A glance at a dictionary suggests that soils constitute the upper layer of the Earth's continental crust in which plants grow, usually consisting of disintegrated rock with admixture of organic remains.
