當今反全球化運動旗手范達娜.席娃(Vandana Shiva)來台灣了。這位另類諾貝爾獎得主、享譽國際的環境運動者及生態女性主義物理學家在台灣旋風式停留36小時, 一襲印度傳統紗麗,以她鏗鏘有力的演說留給聽眾們深刻印象。她同時也聲援了在亞太綠人大會會場擺攤的搶救白海豚行動、收下反中科農民贈送的稻穀,她說,她不需要是台灣人就能感受。對於血汗堆積出來的高科技產業,席娃直接下了一句評語:「高科技?那叫粗糙科技!」

All is not well: climate negotiations in a new avatar

Climate change negotiations—cold after the freeze at Copenhagen—have warmed up again. In early April, negotiators met in Bonn, Germany, on the possible agreement that could be signed at the meet scheduled in December 2010 in Mexico.
