Interactive dialogue on “Harmony with Nature” in commemoration of International Mother Earth Day. - General Assembly18 April 2012

Interactive Panel: "Scientific findings on the impacts of human activities on the functioning of the Earth System" and Closing.

Running time: 02:55:36 Science and technology helped in material production. A new model to heal the planet is necessary. Specialization can preclude holistic thinking, the core of sustainable development. Time to say goodbye to the old model of growth. We are part of the planet, not its masters or its owners. The regenerative capacity of the planet is central. We cannot be a burden to the earth. Science can help us in defining the limits. We must attack the roots of the problem.

Is Amazon the #1 Threat To Jobs?

The conventional wisdom is that outsourcing to places like China is the biggest threat to American jobs.

As it expands out from its online bookstore roots, Amazon has approached virtual monopoly status - and regular retailers are paying the price.
