I have a vision of the world as a global village, a world without boundaries. Imagine a history teacher making history!
Today we're dumping 70 million tons of Global-warming pollution into the environment, and tomorrow we will dump more, and there is no effective worldwide response. Until we start sharply reducing Global-warming pollution, I will feel that I have failed.al gore
With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that manmade Global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.james inhofe
The destruction of the natural world is not the result of Global capitalism, industrialisation, 'Western civilisation' or any flaw in human institutions. It is a consequence of the evolutionary success of an exceptionally rapacious primate. Throughout all of history and prehistory, human advance has coincided with ecological devastation.john n. gray
The United States has an isolationist and insular culture, combined with a Global and interventionist posture. This highly dangerous and febrile mixture, which greatly facilitates the task of the fear-mongers and chauvinists, needs a very exact and nuanced diagnosis. I don't think that analogies from the totalitarian model, however suggestive, are sufficient.christopher hitchens
Technically speaking, since our complex societies are highly susceptible to interferences and accidents,they certainly offer ideal opportunities for a prompt disruption of normal activities. These disruptions can, with minimum expense, have considerably destructive consequences. Global terrorism is extreme both in its lack of realistic goals and in its cynical exploitation of the vulnerability of complex systems.jürgen habermas
Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become Global garbage cans.jacques-yves cousteau
Global arrogance, is not satisfied with the Islamic Revolution's success because it is quite aware of the fact that our victory would result in the globalization of Islam.
The Muslim Brotherhood is a Global movement whose members cooperate with each other throughout the world, based on the same religious worldview - the spread of Islam, until it rules the world.mahdi akef
As the Global expansion of Indian and Chinese restaurants suggests, xenophobia is directed against foreign people, not foreign cultural imports.eric hobsbawm
When I was ambushed by Global warming advocates recently—no, they haven't given up—they asked me the same questions they always ask: "What if you're wrong?" and "If you're wrong will you apologize to future generations?" I always answer, "What if you're wrong? Will you apologize to my twenty kids and grandkids for the largest tax increase in American history?" They usually don't have anything to say after that.james inhofe
"In the same way that the Soviets' Sputnik satellite woke up the country to the need for math and science education, the outsourcing conversation cries out for a constructive, long-term solution that ensures Americans have world-class education, a world-class workforce and the ability to remain a competitive Global leader." (2004)
The major challenges facing humanity today are Global – climate change, accessible fresh water, ever decreasing bio-diversity and over population. These problems call for Global solutions and these solutions will require co-operation on a Global scale unparalleled in history. Peace is the essential prerequisite to create the environment to achieve the levels of co-operation necessary.steve killelea
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
"[President George W. Bush] has a vision which can be described with two other words: Manichaean paranoia... the notion that he is leading the forces of good against the empire of evil, that in that setting, the fact that we are morally superior justifies us committing immoral acts. And that is a very dangerous posture for the country that is the number one Global power. ... The fact is he squandered our credibility, our legitimacy, and even respect for our power."zbigniew brzezinski
Should Saddam be considered a condottiere, once in the pay of the U.S. government and then rebellious against his former masters? When war constitutes the Global order and when the generals become the highest magistrates, we cannot but expect such developments.Saddam Hussein
I'm not a Global warming believer. I'm not a Global warming denier. I'm a Global warming agnostic who believes instinctively that it can't be very good to pump lots of CO2 into the atmosphere but is equally convinced that those who presume to know exactly where that leads are talking through their hats.charles krauthammer
The Sabarmati Riverfront Development project brings together Global wisdom and best practices to revive the river as a public sanctuary for the people of Ahmedabad...The Riverfront upgrades 18 precincts located adjacent to the riverfront land, revitalising the heart of Ahmedabad and leading the city's future growth.
...in the period from 1923 to 1948, known as the Bharata Natyam revival. Performers, critics, and promoters through Bharata Natyam to the urban proscenium stage, recontextualizing and renaming it. In doing so they crafted a genealogy in which Bharat Natyam came to represent ancient tradition and critical experimentation, nationalism, regional identities and the Global transference forms outside of geographical and cultural boundaries.
As to those in the World Trade Center… True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent?… They formed a technocratic corps at the very heart of America's Global financial empire the "mighty engine of profit" to which the military dimension of U.S. policy has always been enslaved and they did so both willingly and knowingly.… If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I'd really be interested in hearing about it.
The real problem is how to get people to internally transform , from egocentric to sociocentric to worldcentric consciousness, which is the only stance that can grasp the Global dimensions of the problem in the first place, and thus the only stance that can freely, even eagerly, embrace Global solutions.ken wilber
Global military spending levels constitute an unconscionable use of resources and remain at an all-time high, reaching a total of USD 1.75 trillion in 2012, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.alfred de zayas
We simply must do everything we can in our power to slow down Global warming before it is too late... The science is clear. The Global warming debate is over.Arnold Schwarzenegger
The Soviet Union has long been proposing to outlaw chemical weapons, to remove them from the arsenals of states. We are prepared for resolution of this problem either on a Global basis or piece by piece. As one of the first steps the USSR and the other socialist countries proposed in January 1984 that agreement be reached on ridding Europe of all types of chemical weapons.konstantin chernenko
In the 1990's, a time of corporate capital's Global ascendancy, the mildest restraints on its prerogatives have been peremptorily rejected. Automatically, under this designation, measures to protect national cultural industries, for example, have been ruled unacceptable infringements of "free trade".herbert schiller
The level and extent of Global interest in Gross National Happiness in the wake of the General Assembly resolution and the Bhutan-sponsored High Level Meeting at the UN Headquarters in New York on April 2, 2012 have been truly astounding and inspiring as well as deeply humbling. Some of the finest minds in the world today are engaged in exploring and understanding the scope and sweep of this revolutionary ideal of human well-being and societal progress.
The single greatest world transformation would simply be the embrace of Global reasonableness and pluralistic tolerance the Global embrace of egoic-rationality (on the way to centauric vision-logic).ken wilber
