氢方案

莱茵克里夫,纽约州—放眼全球,人们一直在呼吁政府和企业大量投资于太阳能、风能、地热能以及生物燃料。但是,与欧洲和亚洲不同,在美国,关于将氢能和燃料电池作为系统性的改变局面技术几乎无人谈及。这需要改变:这些清洁的可再生能源不但能生产零排放基载电力,也能为汽车和卡车提供零排放燃料,而后两者乃是最大的污染源。

如今,包括本田、丰田和现代在内的大型汽车商纷纷抛出了计划,将在2015年左右实现氢燃料电池汽车的商业使用。戴姆勒、福特和日产计划在2017年左右推出氢燃料电池汽车。德国计划到2015年至少建造50座氢能加油站,作为全国网络的起点。日本和韩国也公布了类似计划。

但更大也鲜有报道的消息是一些欧洲国家,特别是德国,已经推出了将太阳能和风能扥挂可再生能源和氢能相结合来储藏能量的计划,这意味着不需要煤、石油和核能的清洁的零排放稳定电网。

    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.
