Extract from the Year's greatest sustainability & collaboration gameboards at SaintJames.tv
• 2012 can londoners smarten up the globalisation's mass media photo call of being olympics game hosts and change the bbc to be a citizen owned social business public broadcaster whose greatest world service is open curiosity in investigating sustainability agendas -where is social business's first anchor woman and will she get as much freedom of voice as macroeconomics news analysts

do we or should we have someone who both has the time and the expertise to get in middle of this china-london climate dialogue context below?

I know I dont have the expertise - if this looks to you less interesting than a parallel general discussion space on china and climate, which one interests you most

the big partnering space yunus wants to build in his national strategy leaflet http://yunusforum.net/?p=55 called growing up with 2 giants is bangladesh-china -as a group do we have any china contacts or are we starting a whole new collaboration partner gameboard?

mostofa looking forward to urgent confirmation on who grameen's relationship manager with ali baba is

Happy 2010 to all our readers! We hope you had a chance to catch up with chinadialogue over our Christmas-New Year break, and we head into 2010 with a fresh mix of articles on critical environmental matters. After Copenhagen, for instance, can market forces – and consumers in particular – help address global warming? John Elkington looks at the promises and pitfalls of “green” consumption, while Tan Copsey examines the outcome of the climate summit. And as China faces difficult decisions over waste disposal and local residents vent their opposition to garbage-burning plants, Ma Jun suggests a way forward. In a two-part slideshow, Daniel Robeiro presents images of deforestation, water and energy issues in Mozambique. Meanwhile, the country’s offshore neighbour, Madagascar, faces many of the same challenges. David Smith reports on how climate change is blamed for playing havoc with the island nation’s harvests and the seasons. And Jonathan Freedland argues that glitzy, debt-ridden Dubai could have spent its riches in much better ways. All this and more in your weekly chinadialogue update … Have you taken our quick-and-easy readers’ survey yet, in either English or Chinese? Please let us know what you think of chinadialogue. You could even win a prize.

亲爱的读者,新年快乐!希望你们在圣诞新年的假期中也抽空浏览了中外对话的文章。在进入2010之际,我们发表了几篇尖锐的文章,均是时下正受激烈讨论的环境议题。比如,哥本哈根会议过后,市场(尤其是消费者)是否能帮助解决全球暖化的问题?约翰•艾尔金顿对各国的承诺和“绿色”消费主义做出了讨论。同时,谭 •科普塞为您解读了气候峰会的成果。另外,中国面临着垃圾处理与居民反对建造垃圾焚化炉的难题,马军为此提出了一个解决方法。在两组幻灯片中,丹尼尔•里贝罗在莫桑比克给大家带来了关于当地伐林,水和能源问题的照片。而其隔海的邻居马达加斯加则面对着类似的挑战。大卫•斯密斯报道了气候变化使得该国的收成减少,四季气候陷入混乱。最后,乔纳森•弗里德兰指出,深陷债务的迪拜本来应该更好的利用财富。以上及更多环境资讯,尽在中外对话每周更新……另外,请完成短小的中、英文读者调查问卷,告知我们您对“中外对话”的意见,您将有机会获得纪念奖品……

春芽:新书掠影 Offshoots


设想在遥远的未来,外星人造访地球。他们会不会发现什么线索,证明这里曾经有过智慧生物的繁荣?我们的城市、大坝、工厂会不会留下什么遗迹,能在1亿年后被探测出来?这是一项简单而有趣的思考实验,在某种程度上正是简•扎拉斯维奇(Jan Zalasiewicz)这本精巧的地质学图书所探究的问题。更多

“The Earth After Us”

Imagine alien visitors arriving on Earth in the remote future. What evidence may they find to tell them that intelligent beings once thrived here? What fragments of our cities, dams and factories may be detectable in, say, 100 million years’ time? It is a simple but intriguing thought experiment that is explored, to some effect, in this neat little geological entertainment by Jan Zalasiewicz.
