伊斯兰教、信仰和气候变化

安曼——8月由世界各地穆斯林学者批准的伊斯兰气候变化宣言呼吁各国逐步淘汰温室气体排放并转而使用100%的可再生能源。全世界16亿穆斯林的集体声明抢在本月晚些时候召开的联合国可持续发展峰会及12月巴黎召开的联合国气候变化大会之前释放了一个明确的信号。

在伊斯坦布尔为期两天的伊斯兰和气候变化研讨会上发布的这项声明详细阐述了穆斯林活动人士为什么应该为这个星球的福祉负责,同时面向世界领导人和商界提出了一系列要求。

首先,宣言呼吁负责起草《巴黎综合气候协议》的决策者达成“一项公平而具有约束力的共识”。上述协议应制定目标并明确监督方式。此外,繁荣国家和产油国应在本世纪中叶以前逐步降低其二氧化碳排放;不赚“破坏环境的不道德利润”并加大对绿色经济投资。

    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.
