"The idea I want to push next is that the United States should make Siberia a Protectorate. Pay the Russians off a hundred, two hundred billion dollars and simply run Siberia in an ecologically responsible way."

Stillsuit Desert Boots  
  Special boots that offered parasitic power harvesting.  

This entry provides some additional details for the original stillsuit from Herbert's earlier novel, Dune.

Paul sat on the edge of his bed and began stripping off his desert boots. They smelled rancid from the lubricant which eased the action of the heel-powered pumps that drove his stillsuit.
From Dune Messiah, by Frank Herbert.
Published by Putnam in 1969
