I have a vision of the world as a global village, a world without boundaries. Imagine a history teacher making history!
Global poverty is an "input" on the supply side; the Global economic system feeds on cheap labor.michel chossudovsky
Global collaboration is something that Wiki mastered in a small way and here we can master it in a big way.ward cunningham
(Kálmán's) fundamental contributions to modern system theory... provided rigorous mathematical tools for engineering , econometrics, and statistics , and in particular for his invention of the "Kalman filter,"... was critical to achieving the Moon landings and creating the Global Positioning System and which has facilitated the use of computers in control and communications technology.
Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become Global garbage cans.jacques-yves cousteau
Mars has Global warming, but without a greenhouse and without the participation of Martians. These parallel Global warmings -- observed simultaneously on Mars and on Earth -- can only be a straightline consequence of the effect of the one same factor: a long-time change in solar irradiance.
The golden toad was the first documented victim of Global warming. We had killed it with our profligate use of coal-fired electricity and our oversize cars just as surely as if we had flattened its forest with bulldozers. It was as if, having experienced it, we did not recognize what happiness was.tim flannery
Those individuals from the far left, and I'm talking about the Hollywood elitists and the United Nations and those individuals want us to believe it's because we are contributing CO2 to the atmosphere, that's causing Global warming. It's all about money. I mean, what would happen to the Weather Channel's ratings if all the sudden people weren't scared anymore?james inhofe
Specifically, the presence of oceans on much of the earth's surface makes it impossible for any state to achieve Global hegemony.john j. mearsheimer
Try this: say the words "Global, Global, Global" aloud several times, as fast as you can. You'll find yourself sounding like a turkey ("gobble, gobble, gobble").jim stanford
It is simply not feasible for sovereignty to be exercised unilaterally by individual nation-states, however powerful. It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the imperatives of Global environmental cooperation.maurice strong
Business can constitute an enormous force for goodness in society. Through its commitments to corporate citizenship and to the principles of the UNGC, the Global business community can continue to create and deliver value to society.talal abu-ghazaleh
The increasing speed of technological advancement and economic integration in recent years has highlighted the importance of intellectual property and put great stress on the ability of established national and international systems that administer IP rights to effectively serve the Global community.talal abu-ghazaleh
The scope of America's Global hegemony is admittedly great, but its depth is shallow, limited by both domestic and external restraints.zbigniew brzezinski
Science is not sacrosanct. The mere fact that it exists, is admired, has results is not sufficient for making it a measure of excellence. Modern science arose from Global objections against earlier views and rationalism itself, the idea that there are general rules and standards for conducting our affairs, affairs of knowledge included, arose from Global objections to common sense.paul karl feyerabend
[T]he degree of confirmation assigned to any given hypothesis is sensitive to properties of the entire belief system … simplicity, plausibility, and conservatism are properties that theories have in virtue of their relation to the whole structure of scientific beliefs taken collectively. A measure of conservatism or simplicity would be a metric over Global properties of belief systems.jerry fodor
What is peddled about nowadays as philosophy, especially that of N.S. [National Socialism], but has nothing to do with the inner truth and greatness of that movement [namely the encounter between Global technology and modern humanity] is nothing but fishing in that troubled sea of values and totalities.Martin Heidegger
Communists, socialists and fascists everywhere, from Mr. Obama upward, have taken to the Global warming cause like a quack to colored water. Just about every word they utter on this subject is a falsehood calculated to deceive, or in plain English a lie.christopher monckton
With the growth of the world population, the Global climate change and the need for a greater healthy environment, access to water resources has become a crucial condition for the realization of an equitable international order, where the needs of the peoples are effectively addressed. In this regard, the need for international cooperation, including in joint effort with relevant non-state actors, is paramount to ensure water is made available to all without discrimination. Water is a human right, an enabling right, not a mere commodity.alfred de zayas
In a world where millions of human beings live in extreme poverty, die of malnutrition and lack medical care, where pandemics continue to kill, it is imperative to pursue good faith disarmament negotiations and to shift budgets away from weapons production, war-mongering, surveillance of private persons and devote available resources to address Global challenges including humanitarian relief, environmental protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation, prevention of pandemics, and the development of a green economy.alfred de zayas
A new Global financial environment has unfolded in several stages since the collapse of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates in 1971.
Try this: say the words "Global, Global, Global" aloud several times, as fast as you can. You'll find yourself sounding like a turkey ("gobble, gobble, gobble").
Indonesia is one of the least exposed economies in the region, with a vast domestic market and a relatively small share of exports to gross domestic product, so it is insulated from volatility in the Global economy,

Cross-enterprise engineering is needed to support the Global cooperation of internal and external organization units in the transformation of classic product development into a virtual process.
Unfortunately, Climate Science has become Political Science. It is tragic that some perhaps well-meaning but politically motivated scientists who should know better have whipped up a Global frenzy about a phenomena which is statistically questionable at best.
Called " Rauschgiftbekaempfung ," The Combatting of Drugs, the term also acquired a more popular meaning closer to 'War on Dope.' This extremely cruel and often arbitrary prohibitionist campaign of National Socialist racial hygiene can be viewed as a precursor to the U.S. War on Drugs, which is itself busily mobilizing the entire police state to root out the demonized forces of foreign 'narco-terrorism' threatening the performance principle of Late Capital's Global sweat shop.
The prospect of a new Global order is also central to many variants of the Human Potential and New Age movements and Scientology. All these very different kinds of NRM nevertheless share a conviction that human beings have, perhaps for the first time, come into possession of the knowledge required to free them from traditional structures of thought and action.
The US has its own national problems - some of them serious - as well as Global challenges such as terrorism and nuclear proliferation. So what the US wants is a peaceful and prosperous Latin America. This has been the aim of US foreign policy in the last 25 years.
