气候活动家们学到了什么?

哥本哈根——

在气候变化问题上,倡议大幅减排二氧化碳的论调现在已经很少听到了。去年十二月哥本哈根气候变化峰会未能达到目的,联合国气候研究专家组据称有造假行为,公众对气候变化议题兴趣减弱、怀疑情绪萌生——面对如此种种,气候活动家也改变了宣传策略。

虽然有部分活动分子还在运用恐吓战术(比如在广告中表现不愿意减少碳排放的人都会自爆),许多活动家不再宣扬气候灾难多么迫在眉睫,而是转而重点宣传“绿色经济”所能带来的利益。

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California.

    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.
