与欧洲的绿色联盟

圣地亚哥/圣保罗—12月,全球领导人将齐聚巴黎参加联合国气候变化会议。预计在这次会议上将产生应对全球变暖的新协定。但是,在巴黎会议召开前,各国首脑和部长将聚会讨论其他各种相关事件。我们参与过无数峰会,可以说,这些其他会议准备合适,并且各国首脑带着诚意与会,巴黎会议成功的前景将会大增。

其中一次会议特别具有决定性:6月10日—11日在布鲁塞尔召开的欧盟和拉美及加勒比国家共同体(CELAC)双年峰会。欧洲和拉美及加勒比海的努力为全球最强大的地区级双边气候变化合作伙伴关系打下了基础。两大地区领导人已承诺致力于将全球气温升温幅度限制在2℃以内并在巴黎取得具法律约束力的结果。

欧盟和CELAC各国首脑可以——也应该——构建紧密联盟并利用有利政治条件推进气候议程的进展,授权其谈判代表在12月推动公正、公平、宏大的协定。欧盟和CELAC加起来占据联合国气候变化框架公约195个签约方的近三分之一和全球温室气体排放量的约20%。欧洲和拉美的气候相关经济成本正在快速上升,因此双方都能从大幅减少排放、增强气候风险抵抗力的全球机制中获益(和节省)良多。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
