疫情给气候危机带来的经验教训【碳阻迹原创】

目前,Covid-19在全球肆虐,全球200多个国家,300万人感染,混乱,苦难和损失遍布全球,没有人能置身事外。气候变化危机和当前疫情危机最大的共通之处在于,任何一个人的努力都无法减轻风险,除非所有人都采取行动。Covid-19的经验教训也许可以帮助我们来应对不断加剧的气候变化危机。 人类活动是环境问题的根源 由于Covid-19,工厂关闭,石油使用量暴跌,全球碳排放大大减少,之前困扰许久的环境问题被迅速解决。 在处于疫情重灾区的意大利,由于居家隔离和游客数量的减少,威尼斯运河的河水变清了,撒丁岛罕见地见到海豚的出现,特莱维许愿池迎来了新的游客,一对水鸟。    图 威尼斯运河疫情前后    图 特莱维许愿池疫情前后 相信科学 Covid-19展示了相信科学的重要性。流行病学家不断警告病毒在全球范围内传播的可能性,这不是一个“if”的问题,而是“when”的问题。但是,在大多数情况下,这些话都被人们选择性的忽视。 同样,气候科学家数十年来一直警告全球供暖威胁巨大的灾难。流行病也许会促使人们采取更为科学,更为迫切的应对气候变化的方法。气候变化将对人类生活产生更大,更持久的调整。汹涌的大海将导致数百万沿海居民流离失所。洪水和干旱将造成农业破坏和严重的粮食短缺,人们将不得不适应一个又一个不断变化的现实问题。 合作才能共赢 Covid-19,和气候变化一样,无国界,也无法区分国界。各国无法独善其身,单打独斗,来对抗这种病毒。因此,国际行动与合作至关重要。 事实证明,在国家和国际层面上,领导力和政策的明确性对于对抗冠状病毒至关重要。在最初的失败之后,中国和韩国采取了严格而全面的制度来控制这一流行病,而且,也同其他国家分享了他们的经验,提供了帮助和合作机会。 然而,不幸的是,一些国家独断专横,既不同其他国家进行合作,也不学习别国的经验教训,目空一切,最后采取了错误的方式来应对疫情。 在美国,特朗普曾视全球变暖为骗局,并让美国退出《巴黎协定》。在Covid-19爆发初期,特朗普又以类似的态度,忽视和处理疫情。尽管事后,特朗普调整了政策,但却浪费了宝贵的时间。截止目前,美国累计确诊逼近100万,美国现已成为  Covid-19的世界中心。 在巴西,博尔索纳罗(他同样也拒绝相信气候变化)将Covid-19描述为幻想,认为只是普通感冒,并暗示这是中国削弱其他国家经济的阴谋,对疫情不作为。目前,他因为消极抗疫而陷入政治孤立。 总结 当前的经济模式是气候危机和全球其他危机的根本原因。当前的经济模式重视眼前的收益,而忽视了未来成本,它基于利润优化和股东价值,而很少关注外部性。Covid-19清楚地说明了利润优化产生的危险。由于生产,加工和分销价格便宜且低于标准,导致了传染病的发生,而对更多,更便宜生产的追求创造了庞大的商品和人员分销网络,使病毒得以快速传播。制定有关标准和采取相关预防措施尽管会带来额外的成本和麻烦,但和传染病爆发造成的损失相比,这些都显得微不足道。 气候变化具有相同的根本原因。只要不用承担外部性负担,企业就会尽可能多地生产和消费以满足人们过多的生活方式需求。在这种情况下,采取如碳排放交易市场或碳税的一些措施,也许并不完美,但却是推动气候变化外部性的一个良好的开始。 展望 为应对气候变化,Covid-19以及正在进行中的其他产生外部性的活动,我们需要建立一种新的经济体系,该经济体系应能解决外部因素的问题。这种新的体系需要有新的生产方法和技术,最重要的是,需要有来自消费者更适度的要求。我们已拥有建立新经济和新社会的一切基础,所有的乐高积木都摆在我们面前,如果采取了正确的措施,一个更美好,更公正的世界可能就在不远的将来。

Clean energy heating project benefits over 310,000 Xinjiang households

A total of 316,000 households in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region benefited from the local coal-to-electricity conversion project in 2019. Last March, Xinjiang launched the three-year project in four poverty-stricken prefectures in the south of the region to increase the clean energy use for winter heating. About 4.6 billion yuan (around 663 million U.S. dollars) were allocated last year to construct and upgrade power grids in the farming and ranching areas in the four prefectures, involving 224 townships and 1,205 villages. The energy conversion project is of positive significance to the local ecological environment. Every year, it will reduce the consumption of 425,000 tonnes of standard coal, cutting down the emission of carbon dioxide by 1.06 million tonnes, sulfur dioxide by 32,000 tonnes and dust by 289,000 tonnes. In 2020, the four prefectures will complete the conversion of coal to electricity for 288,600 households, realizing the target of energy conversion for 900,000 households by 2021.

Help African farmers cope with climate change threats, UN food agency urges

African farmers need help to cope with the threats of climate change, with national policies that protect them and make them resilient, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, FAO, has declared, following a major conference on food security in the continent. In a statement released on Tuesday, at the conclusion of the high-level Africa Food Security Leadership Dialogue, in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, the FAO stated that building resilience is one of the agency’s priorities in Africa, and is key to meeting the challenge of feeding over two billion by 2050. Small-scale food producers and their families, says the UN agency, are particularly vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change, but they have always been innovators: "What they need are policies that protect them and increase their resilience to climate change”, Helen Semedo, FAO's Deputy Director-General, told the conference. “They need access to information, technology, and investment, and they should be brought to the conversation on innovation". According to the latest FAO data, hunger is on the rise in almost all parts of Africa, and the continent has the highest prevalence of undernourishment in the world, at almost 20 percent. The situation, which is attributed mainly to conflict and climate change, is particularly acute in Eastern nations, where almost one-third of the population struggles to find enough to eat.   On Monday, participants – who heard that adaptation to climate risks is possible if there is immediate and bold action taken to build resilience – endorsed a commitment to do more to help African countries to improve their food security. The aim of the Leadership Dialogue is to engage governments and key development partners, and bring about unified action for Africa's agriculture and food systems in response to climate change. The two-day event was hosted by the Government of Rwanda, in partnership with the FAO, the African Union Commission, the African Development Bank, the International Fund for Agricultural Development and the World Bank.
