Melawan Perubahan Iklim di setiap Kawasan

LONDON – Perjanjian internasional baru demi mengatasi perubahan iklim menjadi semakin kuat seiring dengan bergabungnya Amerika Serikat bersama Uni Eropa melalui penyerahan rencana aksi pengurangan emisi gas rumah kaca secara resmi kepada United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC/Konvensi PBB tentang Perubahan Iklim). Amerika Serikat menunjukkan pesan kuat dengan menjadi salah satu negara pertama yang menunjukkan tindakan konkrit melawan perubahan iklim. Ke depannya, negara-negara lain, termasuk Tiongkok dan India, diharapkan juga menyerahkan rencana nasional mereka.

Secara keseluruhan, rencana aksi setiap negara (dikenal dengan istilah “intended nationally determined contributions” (kontribusi nasional), atau “INDCs”) mewakili upaya global secara kolektif untuk berinvestasi dalam masa depan yang rendah karbon dan sejahtera.

Saat ini, kami selaku ketua bersama The Climate Group’s States & Regions Alliance, mengundang para pemimpin negara untuk bergabung dalam upaya ini dengan menyerahkan rencana aksi yang bersifat ambisius dalam menghadapi perubahan iklim. Kami berseru kepada para pemimpin nasional sebab kami percaya ini adalah tindakan yang benar dan kami tahu upaya ini bisa terwujud.

    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.
