A new Worldwatch Paper, Imperiled Waters, Impoverished Future: The Decline of Freshwater Ecosystems, demonstrates that giant dams, massive irrigation systems, and widespread logging often bring few economic benefits, and instead cause environmental degradation, poverty, and suffering, as well as irreplaceable loss of biodiversity.

When the US Federal Witness Protection Program fails to protect a star witness, a tough female former prosecutor risks her life to get answers in international bestselling author Campbell Armstrong’s high-stakes thriller
Reuben Galindez’s testimony helped put away brutal arms smuggler Ángel Sanchez, and he thought the trial would be the last time he’d ever have to deal with Sanchez again. Of course Sanchez’s organization was looking for him, but Galindez wasn’t alone, he had the US government, the FBI, and the Witness Protection Program to keep him safe.
When Galindez’s body is found floating face-down in the river, riddled with bullets, former state prosecutor Amanda Scholes, who believed she’d put Sanchez in jail forever, is determined to find out what went wrong. Did the witness reveal his identity and leave the program? Did someone from inside Sanchez’s organization track down Galindez? Or is his death the result of something far more insidious? Has someone managed to infiltrate the fortresslike security surrounding the program in order to exact revenge?

In 1982 the publication of The Holy Blood and he Holy Grail caused a worldwide sensation. The controversial bestseller disclosed what was regarded by many as the single most shattering secret of the last two thousand years. This is the sequel. This time the quest begins with the origins and spread of early Christian thought and the discrepancies between that though and what we call Christianity today. Indeed, Jesus himself proves not to have been the founder of Christianity, and there may even have been more than one Christ. Of paramount importance, however, is the idea of the Messiah and what that meant to Jesus contemporaries. What emerges is a principle of Messiahship strikingly at odds with what filtered down through Christian tradition through the centuries. But how might any concept of Messiahship be relevant today? How is it understood by those who promulgate it? In order to answer this question the authors embark on a far-ranging survey of the Western world s contemporary malaise, the disintegration of meaning and the quest for new meaning, the values often taken for granted, the spectrum of surrogate religions, and the failure of organized religion to fulfill the needs of its congregations. The authors examine alternative sources of meaning, from Jung and the arts to the institution of royalty, which can all serve a crucial function in holding together a fragmented world. They argue that religion can have a vital role to play in the future of Western society but it must transform itself in order to do so. Yet the enquiry does not end here. For the authors, as for many readers of The Holy Blood and the Holy grail, mystery still surrounds that elusive secret society of the Prieure de Sion, the guardians of the Holy Grail. What is the Prieure doing today? How powerful is it? What kind of resources does it command? What kind of individuals comprise its membership? Answering these questions entails a gripping modern-day adventure story involving phantom journalists, forged signatures, doctored documents and a web of carefully disseminated information. An important American bank, for example, and a respectable British insurance company both figure prominently in the investigation. The reader is drawn into the murky underworld of contemporary European and American affairs where politics the Vatican, high finance, freemasonry and other secret societies, neo-chivalric orders an various intelligence agencies meet and conduct their clandestine transactions.
