【报告内容简介】:
About 50% of the global population, more than 3 billion people, live on less than 3$ a day. The global top 10% earn more than 23$ per day. Clearly lifestyles, consumption patterns and associated carbon footprints differ enormously between rich and poor. Questions for this alternative assignment (or Ted talk No4. transition to a world without oil) : What is the difference in terms of carbon footprints? Do we see a convergence of lifestyles and carbon footprints of rich folks across countries? What would be the carbon implications of moving hundreds of millions of people out of poverty as proposed in the United Nations sustainable development goals? These are some of the questions addressed in this talk.
