60秒科学:People-Power-Takes-Aim-At-Climate-Change

听力内容:

60秒科学节目(SSS)是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目,英文名称:Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主,节目仅一分钟的时间,主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍,对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术,提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。
Consider the carbon. If you fly to the People’s Climate March in New York City September 21st, then you’re spewing copious carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Same is true if you’re driving or even taking the train, though far less of course.

So the People’s Climate March itself won’t lower the amount of CO2 pollution in the atmosphere. But the sight of thousands of people at the march including Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon and other luminaries¡ªmight help convince world leaders that the fight against climate change has popular support. And more than 125 such leaders, including President Obama, are expected at the Secretary General’s climate summit this week.

The good news is that there are steps to take that we know work to combat climate change. Whether that be international treaties like the Montreal Protocol or replacing fossil fuel burning with renewable power or even nuclear, there are policies that work if world leaders have the courage to adopt them.

So if all those marchers can convince world leaders to take action, then their one-time CO2 output will be worth it.
