要有以长远眼光来看待发展的能力

纽约——接下来的一年将诠释什么叫做压力——因为我们必须做出现在和未来一系列势在必行的困难抉择。人们将以如何化解这种压力来衡量我们的领导才能和眼光。

作为一个由国家组成的团体,我们将在未来一年内面临三项迫在眉睫的考验。第一项考验已经开始。全球金融危机并不是我们所说的第一项考验,尽管它的确如此重要。我在这里要谈的是气候变化,这是一个真正摆在我们面前的威胁问题。

我们在哥本哈根召开重要会议前只有短短12个月,世界各国领袖将于明年12月会聚一堂,达成一项制止全球变暖的协议。我们需要一份能延长、深化和增强《京都议定书》的协议。我们需要面向二十一世纪制定一份平衡、包容和涉及方方面面的新协议——所有的国家必须都能接受这份协议。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.
