Climate change, energy, oil and gold price Relationship

Pincas Jawetz on climate change, energy, Oil and Gold Price Relationship; O' CANADA; more
Mr. Jan Egeland is the embattled, but rather successful and well-meaning, U.N. Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Humanitarian Relief Coordination - OCHA, the second largest office at the U.N. He is the emergency Relief Coordinator in the post-Tsunami world activities....

Mr. Egeland advocates three points:

- to capitalize on increased awareness to get serious about disaster prevention and risk reduction.

- to create a Tsunami early warning system in the Indian Ocean. He said that this would cost $30 million - just think how this pales in comparison with the present losses.

- the upcoming World Conference on Disaster Reduction in Kobe, Japan, to be chaired by Mr. Egeland.
