Aberkane and Haug (2012) cited Oreck as a "vanguard green diplomat" [1] advocating noopolitik and the Blue Economy

"Here comes green diplomacy, here comes Noopolitik, here comes Oreck’s (...) advice of turning a significant piece of the Department of Defense’s gargantuan budget into a global investment for peace, prosperity, exemplarity and the Blue Economy rather than for destruction, just as Jimmy Carter had advised."
