New and Noteworthy (Energy Report, The Future Faces of War, The Middle East)

In today's edition:

* The World Widlife Fund's new publication Energy Report, making the case for the feasibility of "100% renewable energy by 2050." (Those looking for a quick preview of the document can find it up at the always informative Energy Bulletin.)

* The New Security Blog offers a preview of Jennifer Dabbs Sciubba's new book The Future Faces of War: Population and National Security.

* And finally, both Ken MacLeod and Charles Stross are currently commenting on events in Egypt. Both authors cite Professor Juan Cole's post on his blog Informed Comment "Why Egypt 2011 is Not Iran 1979," while Stross also mentions John Quiggin's discussion, "The End of the Arab Exception?" at Crooked Timber.
