The Chinese Communist Party: victim of its own successes

While I was holidaying in Puerto Rico, I made it a point to visit the world’s largest radio telescope – the Arecibo Observatory. However, I was quickly corrected by my local host, José, who informed me that China had already surpassed that feat, completing their own “world’s biggest” radio telescope in July.

Comparing Cost- Fossil Fuels v.s. Renewable Energy

Austin Schiano

UN Sustainability Professional

Carnegie Council New Leaders Member

It is clear as with any major innovation, that the global economies shift toward renewable energy will not be due to a moral imperative but rather an economic incentive.

THINK ABOUT THIS!

Being a teenager,the word ethics often makes me scrunch my face and shy away from the issue simply because it sounds overwhelming and obviously adultlike. Just like the word coleslaw,one needs to get their heads out of the clouds and look closely at what could be if one really took interest and then discover the sweetness.

"Peace is not the work of a single day, nor will it be the consequence of a single act. Yet every constructive act contributes to its growth; every omission impedes it. Peace will come, in the end, if it comes at all, as a child grows to maturity - slowly, imperceptibly, until we realize one day in incredulous surprise that the child is almost grown." Adlai E. Stevenson

Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency, with Larry Diamond

Larry Diamond's core argument is stark: the defense and advancement of democratic ideals relies on U.S. global leadership. If the U.S. does not reclaim its traditional place as the keystone of democracy, today's authoritarian trend could become a tsunami that could provide an opening for Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and their admirers to turn the 21st century into a dark time of surging authoritarianism.
