巴黎的REDD+

柏林—联合国粮农组织启动第一个全球政府间阻止森林流失的项目——热带森林行动计划已经三十年。三十年来,森林采伐之势从未减小,而最新的阻止滥伐措施——被称为“减少滥伐和毁林所致排放”(Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation,REDD+)——看上去也不太可能收到成效。这两个协议远远没有达到保护世界森林的效果,其最邻人瞩目的结果反倒是昂贵咨询报告的层出不穷。

REDD+是联合国气候变化框架公约的一部分,而管理其实施的协定预计将在联合国气候变化巴黎会议上完成。但如果世界领导人认真对待阻止森林流失的问题,就应该放弃REDD+,替之以解决大规模采伐的根本动机的机制。

REDD+的缺陷确凿地表现在它应对它意欲解决的问题的方法上。其绝大多数项目将林居民族和农民视为滥伐的主要群体。REDD项目开发者似乎腿与着重于限制传统农业的项目特别感兴趣,却回避真正的滥伐原因:工业化农业的扩张、大规模基础设施工程、大规模采伐作业以及失控的消费。

    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.
