Trade. There's The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) which include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela. Brazilian President Inacio Luca da Silva said they (UNASUR) would seek a common currency and central bank, aimed at boosting economic and political integration in the region.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) which wants to have a single common currency, as opposed to it's individual currencies. This group currently consists of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
In May 2005 the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) now consisting of ten countries, plus China, Japan and South Korea, agreed to expand their network of bilateral currency swaps into what could become a FED type of institution.
The Africa Union consists of 53 states. Within that there is the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) which includes 15 countries. They have already joined monetarily. There are other groups wanting to unite in Africa too.
Obviously there's Europe with the Euro and what North America does further down the road with Latin America and Canada remains to be seen, but I wouldn't rule out an emergence of those currencies in the future completely.
This all takes a while, but it's clear that countries are willing to give up some of their sovereignty to have the stability and weight of a homogenized currency and that process is still far from complete but none the less, it's moving on at a rapid pace. Political union is often happening at the same time, though differences and issues are still prevalent, there is often a desire to establish laws that filter down to everyday policies of governing the countries involved. These new and much bigger currencies are being offered, basically a grand central bank, so that say you hold a million in dollars and a million in euro's, you can exchange them in the central bank into a world currency that has more stability and that banks deposits will be huge and give that bank the power, over time to be the worlds biggest lender, far supplanting what's available currently. Will all of this lead to a world government and currency? Yes, over time it is more than likely, as groups of nations merge further with their governing institutions, their dependency on an overall regulatory body will also increase to harmonize trade between existing groups.
Conflicts will happen, but when countries have so little power over their own nations it's harder to go to war, when in theory you'd be up against your own troops, as is already happening in Europe and else where and you can't print your own money etc, etc... my guess is that troops will be used far more against the pirates, terrorists, and generaly used to combat uncompliant groups of citizens than will be needed against nations. That said though militaristic wars between countries and groups of countries would be a possibility before a world government had full political and military control, and even after that acting as 'policeman' could attack one or more of it's own countries. That would be highly unlikely though, as enormous economic pressures inflicted at earlier stages, given the governing authority, would have the power, should alone have the desired effect alone.
I don't think that global warming is a farce, but I don't have enough scientific knowledge to argue the whole thing. Snow melting, ice melting..etc, etc, so many problems ecologically caused by man.... I bet it's true.
