Questions about memory

Today, public remembrance is facing other challenges, as we have seen recently in Italy. We talk about the Nazi past but try to separate it from the current history of the country. An answer to this all came from Liliana Segre, when she remembered that we should not compare the Racist Laws to what is happening today, but that the mechanisms of indifference are very similar. The Senator has talked in the spirit of Primo Levi: we forget and repress the past only when we do not look at the present.


Climatic Change: Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?

The fact that the mean global temperature has been falling over the past several decades has led observers to discount the warming effect of the CO2 produced by the burning of chemical fuels. In this report I present an argument to show that this complacency may not be warranted. It is possible that we are on the brink of a several-decades-long period of rapid warming.


Understanding climate change

What is climate change? And which strategies could we adopt to counter it? We asked it to Filippo Giorgi, the person in charge of the branch of Physics of the Earth of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) of Trieste, who also contributed to the proceedings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and author of a book, L’uomo e la farfalla; Sei domande su cui riflettere per comprendere i cambiamenti climatici, presenting scenarios and solutions.

Toward a right to "environmental safety"?

24 countries of Latin America and the Caribbeans have signed a binding agreement containing measures to protect the environmental defenders.A measure that should be taken by the United Nations, as well. In the meanwhile, activists continue to die while trying to protect the Earth.


When evil sits at the table with us

Why did we write the Charter of Responsibilities? Why are we inviting all our friends to discuss it?

We are living in very dangerous times, which could end up throwing us into ruinous conflicts and overwhelming sorrow in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. And yet we all have an opportunity to reverse this trend, because nothing is granted and everyone of us within his space of responsibility can be the arbiter of his own fate.
