JOI LA GAUDEAMUS

 

14.00 – 15.30 : Lansarea volumului: “Planeta plină, farfuriile goale – Noua geopolitică a deficitului de hrană” Editura Tehnică 

 Nivel 0.00 – SALA CUPOLA

Lansarea volumului: “Planeta plină, farfuriile goale – Noua geopolitică a deficitului de hrană” , autor Lester Brown.

Volumul ce va fi lansat reprezinta O PREMIERA ABSOLUTA deoarece Editura Tehnica a reusit performanta de a publica traducerea in limba romana, la numai o luna dupa aparitia sa in America. Autorul a inceput sa o scrie in primavara acestui an iar la sfarsitul lunii octombrie a vazut lumina tiparului cu ocazia unui seminar al Bancii Mondiale, in America. Urmeaza a fi tradusa in peste 35 de limbi si este semnificativ faptul ca luni 26 noiembrie urmeaza a fi lansata la Haga iar marti 27 la Bruxelles. Sub conducerea lui Roman Chirila, Editura Tehnica a ramas consecventa publicarii analizelor lui Lester Brown.

Lester Brown  este unul dintre cei mai cunoscuti cercetatori in domeniul problematicii globale, a dezvoltarii durabile si al protectiei factorilor de mediu. In 2010, cu ocazia vizitei la Bucuresti, Academia Romana a decis sa-i acorde titlul de Membru de Onoare, iar Universitatea de Stiinte Agricole si Silvice – titlul de Doctor Honoris Causa.

Am prefatat cu placere acest volum in virtutea prieteniei ce ma leaga de autor dar si din dorinta de a prezenta publicului roman aceasta veritabila radiografie a raportului dintre resursele de hrana si deficitul acestora pe plan global.

    Lester Brown: Still Wrong After All These Years
    (By Alex Avery, PRI Review: 1997 (v7, n1) January/February)

    http://www.pop.org/content/lester-brown-still-wrong-after-all-these-1765

    “That’s Brown. Every time the world has seen a blip in food prices or a slight glitch in grain production, Brown has seen it as a harbinger of the end. He breathlessly announces that crippling food shortages and devastating famines are upon us. Only when grain production rebounds — increases over the long term average 1.7 percent — or food prices continue their long-term fall, does he fall silent for a time.

    In By Bread Alone, he gave four reasons for pessimism: l) a leveling off of world grain production, 2) the approaching limits to agricultural technology, 3) the effects of global cooling, and 4) environmental degradation, especially soil erosion.

    He has been proven wrong on all counts. … . The hysteria over global cooling has vanished, to be replaced by an equally wrongheaded and equally hysterical environmentalist frenzy over global warming!
