Voitures électriques et développement durable Electric Vehicles Cars and Sustainable Development

New York, E.-U. –-- La clé de la maîtrise des changements climatiques se trouve dans les innovations technologiques. Nous devons trouver de nouveaux moyens de produire et d’utiliser l’énergie, de répondre à nos besoins alimentaires, de nous transporter, de chauffer et de rafraîchir nos maisons,ce qui nous permettra de réduire l’utilisation de pétrole, de gaz, de charbon, d’engrais azotés et autres émetteurs de gaz à effet de serre qui contribuent au changement climatique.The key to climate change control lies in improved technology. We need to find new ways to produce and use energy, meet our food needs, transport ourselves, and heat and cool our homes that will allow us to cut back on oil, gas, coal, nitrogen-based fertilizer, and other sources of the climate-changing greenhouse gases. 

Nous avons suffisamment de bonnes options à notre dispositions pour nous autoriser à penser que le monde peut parvenir à contrôler les changement climatiques à un prix raisonnable (peut-être 1% du revenu mondial par an) tout en maintenant la croissance de l’économie mondiale et en améliorant les niveaux de vie. L’un des projets les plus passionnantest la nouvelle génération de voitures électriques.There are enough good options available to suggest that the worldwe can accomplish the goal of controlling climate–change control at a reasonable cost (perhaps 1%one percent of globalworld income per year) while enabling the world economy to continue to grow and raise living standards.  One of the most exciting developments on the horizon is the new generation of electric automobiles. 

Dans les premiers temps de l’histoire de l’automobile à la fin du XIXème siècle, desvéhicules très différents étaient dans la course : moteurs à vapeur, avec batterie, ou à combustion interne.Les moteurs à combustion interne qui fonctionnent à l’essence ou au diésel ont gagné la courseIn the earliest days of the automobile in the late 19thnineteenth century, many kinds of cars competed with each other – steam, battery, and internal combustion engine (ICE). avec le succès du Modèle T, sorti des chaînes de montage en The gasoline and diesel-powered internal combustion engines won the competition with the success of the Model T, which first rolled off of the assembly line in 1908. Cent ans plus tard, la course reprend de plus belle. One hundred years later, the competition is again stirring.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession.
