Effizienterer Klimaschutz

Published by 3 SAT

2013-05-27 Lomborg fordert Effizienz statt "Feel-Good-Politik" Der Klimawandel werde derzeit falsch bekämpft, kritisiert der Statistiker Bjørn Lomborg. "Bisherige Lösungsansätze waren wirtschaftlich nicht attraktiv." Nur mit moralischen Appellen bekomme man den Klimawandel jedoch nicht in den Griff. Er fordert, jährlich 72 Milliarden Euro in die Erforschung alternativer Energien zu stecken. "Dann werden sie in 20 bis 40 Jahren billiger sein als Öl." Das Geld könne aus Staatshaushalten oder einer Kohlendioxidsteuer kommen. "Zurzeit investieren wir nur 1,5...

Гушкање запалено дрво

Published by Utrinski

2013-05-19 Сите сме воспитувани да рециклираме хартија за да се спасат дрвјата. Добиваме безброј и-мејл предупредувања: „Ве молиме, водете сметка за животната средина пред печатењето“. Навистина, екологијата беше создадена со повик да се зачуваат шумите. Но, сега, во името на спасување на планетата од климатските промени, еколозите предлагаат огромна глобална кампања да се сечат и запалат дрвја и грмушки со цел да се намали употребата на фосилни горива. Иницијативата би можела да биде отфрлена како чудна иронија, ако не беа нејзините феноменални трошоци, кои опфаќаат можно...

Hugging a Burning Tree

Published by Project Syndicate

2013-05-05 We are all brought up to recycle paper to save trees. We get countless e-mail admonitions: “Please consider the environment before printing.” Indeed, environmentalism was born with a call to preserve the forests. But now, in the name of saving the planet from climate change, environmentalists are proposing an immense global campaign to cut down and burn trees and scrubs in order to reduce fossil-fuel use.
