我的好友贝塔·卡塞雷斯(Berta Cáceres)和我在2015年获得了戈德曼环境奖,贝塔在获奖演说上说道:“我将我的生命献给地球母亲。”不久前,贝塔在洪都拉斯被暗杀。她的故事是一个悲剧,但不是偶然。事实上,一个月后,另一位戈德曼环境奖得主伊西德罗·鲍德内格罗·洛佩兹(Isidro Baldenegro López)遭遇枪击身亡。

对一位环保活跃分子来说,现在是最危险的时候。比如,美国爆发了针对游行反对达科他州管道的环保者的暴力事件。警方被控过度使用武力驱逐史坦丁洛克(Standing Rock)苏族部落及其支持者,他们认为管道工程将污染水源,破坏宝贵的墓葬。

    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.

    The Platform Economy

Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
