环境变化的健康代价

牛津——近年来,世界各国越来越关注全球变暖及其他人为因素所造成环境变化的潜在灾难性后果,而且人们完全有理由这样做。但最严重的危险因素之一却一直被忽视:那就是对人类健康的威胁。

可以肯定,担心全球气温超过前工业化水平对地球可能意味着什么是完全合理的。同时,不难想见许多人对世界最贫困人口受影响最大深感忧虑,而全球第二大二氧化碳排放国美国似乎正在推卸责任

但人们在很大程度上忽视了人为因素所致环境变化带来的健康影响,同时有些人为了经济利益而以我们子孙后代的生活质量为抵押。这样的影响在非洲、亚洲、美洲和欧洲等新兴市场国家表现得最为明显了。

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
