拒絕做未來的氣候難民!   電影±2℃將中南部沿海地帶列為第一波被海水淹沒的高風險地帶,但雲林無數癌症村的災難已是現代進行式。為了台塑六輕,集集攔河堰與湖山水庫正擰乾寶島的山河,現在還要推動第五期的擴建;國光石化則從雲林跑到彰化,正準備夾擊母親大河濁水溪,還逼政府不能將國際重要溼地登錄保護。中科打著高科技的大旗掩蓋高污染的事實,還為財團的貪得無厭到處圈地,連環評被最高行政法院判決無效仍悍不停工。從反杜邦掀起台灣環保抗爭史的聖地,卻被台電玩弄環評所威嚇。一連串的掠奪性開發,從媽祖魚的生存危機,看到台灣人民的未來。   被鬼牽去的官員、政客,以為用大開發計畫膨風GDP就能騙選票。其實人民在乎的是,清氣的春風和甘甜好水,免驚吃到歹物,世代居住的家園可以繼續傳下去,這是咱的在地幸福經濟。   全世界的資本家早就團結起來,壓迫各國政府不對地球發燒採取行動。...

在哥本哈根大會期間的高漲激情幾乎是失控的!場外民眾在北歐的嚴寒中排隊數小時期待參與而會場中卻是寒冰般僵局。   大會在許多前提中就失敗了。基於聯合國框架的氣候問題談判沒有形成任何有意義的結果。對話將在2010年12月的第16次墨西哥多邊會談中繼續下去。 所謂的“最後一分鐘協定”主要是由中國和美國的領導人作出的,參與次協定的還有印度和巴西。 這是個失敗的協定,因為它沒有作出任何保證以避免氣候變化的危害,也沒有形成具有制約力的法律。   在這種例行公事的會場外,在全世界綠黨是12月12日行動日的重要參與者。 僅在哥本哈根就有超過十萬人聚集,更有成千上萬的人在世界各國行動者。國際綠黨同時組織了一個資訊交換論壇為在哥本哈根的同仁服務,以及組織了一個由綠色領袖們共同參與的公共活動,他們包括 Rebecca Harms, Marina Silva, Jose Bove, Christine Milne and Elizabeth May,很遺憾的是Wangari Maathai教授沒能參加。    更多資訊: 超越哥本哈根(會議)...

In Copenhagen the over-riding impression was chaos! People queuing for hours outside in the freezing cold, and deadlocked talks inside.   The conference failed on several fronts. Negotiations to protect the climate under the formal UN framework produced no meaningful result. Talks will continue through 2010 to the next Conference of Parties (COP16) in December 2010 in Mexico. The last minute ‘Copenhagen Accord’ was negotiated mainly between the Heads of State of China and... Read more
JANUARY 21, 2010 The 107 million tons of grain that went to U.S. ethanol distilleries in 2009 was enough to feed 330 million people for one year at average world consumption levels. More than a quarter of the total U.S. grain crop was turned into ethanol to fuel cars last year. With 200 ethanol distilleries in the country set up to transform food into fuel, the amount of grain processed has tripled since 2004. The United States looms large in the world food economy: it is far and away the... Read more
Should a corporate bully be allowed to silence criticism using the courts? Next week's Gunns 20 trial should be watched closely by anyone who cares about free speech, writes Liesel Rickarby. After more than five years, the Gunns 20 case finally goes to trial next week. It will be the biggest case of its type in Australian history and is an excellent example of a SLAPP suit, or Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation.   In December 2004, Tasmanian logging company Gunns issued 20...

先撇開綠黨的六大核心價值不談,撇開今年亞太綠人大會的主題「公平分攤」不談,也撇開所有在亞太綠人大會將會談到的那些環境與社會議題不談,讓我們回到最原始的初衷:關心。   每個人都有他特別關心的事情;即使不是出於某種對他者的同理,僅僅只是期望自己和家人過得好一點,就一定會關心,關心每天吃進肚子裡的食物是不是乾淨,關心門口馬路可不可以不要東挖一個洞西挖一個洞,關心假日全家出遊的時候有沒有辦法安全愉快地騎單車,關心孩子能不能在教育體系中發展自我並學會尊重彼此,關心未來退休後會不會過上舒適又有尊嚴的銀髮生活。   有的人,會多關心一點點。喜歡貓狗的人,不只關心自己的寵物,也愛屋及烏地關心路上的流浪動物。認識了一個新住民或者移工,就關心其他遠來的朋友能不能被友善對待。自己的親友生了特殊的、需要額外照顧的病,於是關心起醫療環境。   然而,現在是一個一但關心就會焦慮、會失望、會沮喪的時代,因為環顧四週,有那麼多事情急需改進,卻總覺得自己無法改變任何一件。被一個又一個的壞消息追逐著,我們沈溺在強烈的無力感中,最後只好開始說服自己看開,說服自己認命,甚至試圖自欺欺人,...

At the end of February 2009, defenders of the old camphor trees on the site of the Old Songshan Tobacco Factory launched Taiwan's first tree hugging movement. After being forced to relocate the old camphor unfortunately did not receive proper care and died within six months. In the past year of successes and frustrations, Taiwan's "Protect the Trees" movement is gradually finding its way. We hope that this meeting gives fellow tree huggers a chance to meet, share experiences, and grow... Read more
The public is largely unaware of a momentous battle about to be fought in Washington.  The stakes are enormous. Yet the public has not been well informed.      Ignorance of the matter derives in part from the fact that the conflict was initiated via the highly charged issue of climate change. Climate is complex.  People have different opinions  about the extent to which humans are causing climate change. Fundamental belief systems are  involved and discussion can be emotional.       Yet the... Read more
Message from Australian Senator Bob Brown:  Yesterday a Japanese whaling ship in the Southern Ocean rammed the Sea Shepherd vessel Ady Gil. Video footage shows this to be an irresponsible, dangerous and callous act.   In the wake of news the Japanese whaling fleet hired Australian planes from Hobart and Albany to track the Sea Shepherd ships' movements, the Greens will introduce a bill banning activities associated with whaling in Australia when the Senate resumes. Please add your... Read more

The request will come during the 2nd Asia-Pacific Greens Network (APGN) meeting to be held in Taiwan next year. The announcement came from party spokesman Pan Han-shen. Pan said that reduction targets set by developed countries at the recent Climate Summit in Copenhagen have "caused heartbreak among environmentalists." He then... Read more
As 2009 came to a close, the whole world was paying dear attention to the concurrent closing of the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark. After days of summit talks, neither effective consensus nor concrete actions were reached due in large part to the participating countries’ conflicting interests. The international community, with Asian countries in particular, aim in forthcoming climate talks to improve collaboration in grappling with the continued rapid deterioration of... Read more
