伦敦—全球正在从碳排放密集型化石燃料向更清洁、更可靠的可再生能源(如风能与太阳能)转型,并已步入正轨。但最重大的问题是:从本世纪20年代起,转型会多快到来。如果转型缓慢,将意味着能源行业的现有企业依旧续蓬勃发展,而对于我们而言,也将近乎会错过2015年《巴黎气候协定》(Paris climate agreement)规定的减排目标。但如果转型过于迅速,现有的机构将经历不同程度的无序性——但对此所付出的代价,或将被限定在巴黎峰会目标的可控范围之内。就目前情况而言,这两种情况都是可能发生的的,也代表了摆在我们面前的两条抉择之路。

在世界经济论坛(World Economic Forum)全球未来能源理事会(Global Future Council on Energy)的一份新报告中,笔者们一同对四个关键领域进行了界定,这将决定我们会对哪条道路进行选择。一文提供了令人信服的证据,同时也表明转型正在以迅猛之势到来。换言之,全球能源体系的所有利益相关者,即每一个人,都必须要对此着手应对。

    Relieving Libya’s Agony

    Javier Solana

    The credibility of all external actors in the Libyan conflict is now at stake. The main domestic players will lower their maximalist pretensions only when their foreign supporters do the same, ending hypocrisy once and for all and making a sincere effort to find room for consensus.
