🔴Thursday April 22nd 2021 🔵2021年4月22日星期四 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 🇺🇸🌍🇺🇸Promising the earth: Biden’s climate summit 為地球盡一份心力:拜登的氣候高峰會 Today—Earth Day—Joe Biden, America’s president, will host 40 world leaders in a virtual two-day “climate summit”. His goal is a grand one: to persuade other countries to take more action on climate change, while also rebuilding American credibility on the issue. He will try to lead by example. He is expected to announce a plan to cut America’s greenhouse-gas emissions in half by 2030. This would nearly double America’s pledge under the Paris agreement of 2015, which promised to cut emissions by 26-28% from their levels in 2005. Mr Biden is also expected to announce new support to help poor countries use more renewable energy. He also wants other governments to make their own targets more ambitious ahead of COP26, the United Nations climate conference in November. Britain and the European Union have already announced their own tougher targets. Countries such as Brazil, China and Russia will probably present any new emissions targets in their own time, if at all. 美國總統拜登 (Joe Biden) 將在同為「世界地球日 (Earth Day)」的今天主持有四十國領袖參與,為期兩天的線上「氣候高峰會」。他有一個遠大的目標:說服其他國家對氣候變遷採取更多的行動,與此同時,也重建美國在這個議題上的信譽。在拜登領導下的美國將試著以身作則。他可望發佈一項致力於在 2030年以前,將美國溫室氣體之排放減半的計畫。此計畫的目標量是美國在 2015年《巴黎協定》所承諾的,比 2005年的排放標準減少 26-28%的兩倍。此外,拜登也預計會宣佈對貧窮國家的再生能源提供新的支持。他還希望在今年 11月的第二十六屆聯合國氣候變化大會 (COP26) 召開前,能有其他政府 (一同) 立下更具野心的目標。英國與歐盟已經公佈了其本身更具挑戰性的目標。至於像是巴西、中國以及俄羅斯,雖然不太可能,但如果有的話他們將會依照自己的時程來公佈新的排放目標。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Summit (n.): 高峰會 (名) ✅Persuade (v.): 說服、勸說 (動) ✅Take action on (v.): 對…採取行動、作為 (動) ✅Rebuild (v.): 重建 (動) ✅Credibility (n.): 信用、信譽 (名) ✅Announce (v.): 宣佈、公佈、發表 (動) ✅Pledge (v./n.): 誓言 (動)、誓約 (名) ✅Renewable energy (n.): 再生能源 (名) ✅Ambitious (adj.): 有企圖心的、雄心勃勃的 (形) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專: ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號: ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道: ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台: — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤
