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
"[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
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
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.
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
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
...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.
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
Through exploitation of its influence over Global financial affairs, the United States has been able to cover the costs of its hegemonic position, preserve a false domestic prosperity, and mask the consequences of its relative political and economic decline.robert gilpin
Canada may be fast-forwarding, jump starting, into a new pattern, a model of communication linkages, a civilization that is more than a grab for power and dominance, a place that could channel the fires of the Global wirings, where political alliances are subject to electrical ebb and flow, and the alchemical cultivations of imagination and perception, of the self, could precail of the ideology of capital.b. w. powe
We must recognise that in an integrated world, trade cannot be divorced from other concerns. We need to promote free trade and serious Global efforts with respect to common problems even as we support every nation's right to chart its own course.lawrence summers
[Pelosi] is committed to her Global warming fanaticism to the point where she has said that she's just trying to save the planet. We all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet -- we didn't need Nancy Pelosi to do that.michele bachmann
In an age of Global standardization, regional voices also remind both writer and reader that no life is lived generically. If the purpose of literature is truly, as the ancients insisted, to instruct and delight, then what better to understand and enjoy than the here and the now ?dana gioia
This new declaration which emphasizes the necessity of Global disarmament is based on the purposes and principles of the United Nations, in particular the prohibition of the threat and use of force, and on the obligation to negotiate disputes in conformity with the UN Charter. It is a strong and positive example for the entire world.alfred de zayas
The fundamental truth about globalization that it represents freedom for capital and unfreedom for labour is especially clear where Global migrants are concerned.
The value of Global modelling has been severely restricted by poor appreciation of the constraints under which governments and politicians operate. Equally, the value of governments and politicians has been severely restricted by largely ignoring the very real but less immediate problems tackled by modellers.
