IPE Conference: Al Gore stirs investors to say yes to solving climate crisis

first_imgMust we change?Can we change?Will we change?Many scientists believed the climate crisis had become an existential crisis for humanity, he said. It was also the number one threat to the global economy. The investment community can play the key role in ensuring the world can change in time to avoid a full-blown crisis as a result of climate change, former vice president Al Gore told a packed auditorium at the IPE annual conference in Prague yesterday. “Ultimately it boils down to a choice between what’s right and wrong, and when enough people see it clearly then the final no gives way to a yes.”Al GoreIt can do so “in ways that are completely and totally consistent with taking the full value spectrum into account in safeguarding the assets that you’re managing, to offset the liabilities and fulfil your fiduciary responsibilities”, he added.The environmental activist and chair of Generation Investment Management made his argument with myriad figures and examples, urging investors to answer ‘yes’ what he said were “the only three questions remaining to be addressed about the climate crisis”. Al Gore addresses the IPE Conference in Praguecenter_img Al GoreAt Generation Investment Management, the view was that the world was facing a global sustainability revolution with the magnitude of the agricultural and industrial revolution, but the speed of the digital revolution.It was the single largest investment opportunity in history, and was emanating from developing and developed countries alike, he added.There were signs that “maybe we are at a point of reckoning” with respect to cutting fossil fuel subsidies and the cost of green energy technology was falling significantly.Gore warned investors against the dangers of being too narrowly focused on one part of the value chain, thereby failing to appreciate the risks of some of their economic decisions and missing out on some of the opportunities that were rapidly emerging from the unprecedented changes that were underway.He said investors needed to “look beyond the comfortable and familiar financial metrics” to take into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.Gore turned to poetry to drive home his concluding remarks. He said some people still believed there was not the political will to solve the climate crisis, and then quoted from the work of the late Wallace Stevens, an American businessman and poet:  “After the final no there comes a yesAnd on that yes the future world depends.”Every great movement that has transformed human civilisation, said Gore, had first met with a series of ‘nos’.“But ultimately it boils down to a choice between what’s right and wrong, and when enough people see it clearly then the final no gives way to a yes,” he said. Gore’s presentation was received with a standing ovation by many delegates.last_img read more

Other Sports Earlier Padma Shri snub motivated me to do better: Harika Dronavalli, India chess grandmaster

first_imgHarika Dronavalli settled for bronze in the 2015 and 2017 World Championships.Harika Dronavalli won the Arjuna Award in 2007.Harika Dronavalli became a woman chss grandmaster at the age of 20. highlights Speaking exclusively to News Nation, Harika summed up her years of struggle and highlighted how she turned the pain of rejection into something motivational. “When I did not receive it, I was upset. You lose something, you feel bad. You feel that you must win it all cost. I had won all the women’s titles possible. The only thing remaining was the world title. I had felt that this was enough to win the title. Otherwise, I was wondering how I would convince the world of my achievement,” Harika said.The 28-year-old from Guntur then highlighted as to how she turned the rejection around and put in some fine performances. “I told myself that this is good for me. The pain gave me more extra motivation to do well. I then applied again next year. I was just doing it. I was not expecting it. I thought one day or the other my appreciation would come. I was trying hard and was keeping myself doubly motivated,” Harika said.‘Happy for parents’When Harika finally won the Padma Shri, the happiness that she shared on all her social platforms was unlike any which was seen on her previous social media activity. She said her parents were on ‘cloud nine’ following her achievement. Harika said the award meant a lot as her parents had put in plenty of work to make her reach where she was.“I am happy for my parents because they are incredibly happy. In their disappointment, I started feeling bad. This was important for my parents as they had worked extremely hard to get to where I am. It holds immense value. It takes a lot to get an award like the Padma Shri. Chess is not a viewer friendly sport. These kind of awards motivate us. For me, getting the Padma Shri is making people understand the amount of hard work and struggles that we have put in chess to get to where we are,” Harika said.Considering the fact that she had to wait so long for the award, Harika actually pointed out the paradox of the entire Padma Shri episode, highlighting her plight with female athletes of other sports. “Women are more privileged in the country. They got more recognition. However, if I have to see my sport, we are yet to get the recognition for what we have achieved. It will change in the near term,” Harika said.When asked whether the thought of quitting the sport ever occurred to Dronavalli in case she never won the Padma Shri, she emphatically replied No but highlighted the value of getting such an award. “We don’t play for awards. This is one of the awards that will give you recognition in the country. It did not occur for a second (about quitting). I never doubted my skills. I only try to bring laurels for the country,” Harika said.Supportive partnerIn 2018, the queen of chess was checkmated by her king when she married Karteek Chandra, who is a managing director at a construction and civil engineering company. Harika said she is glad to have gotten such a supportive partner, stating that she is travelling more and playing more. The fact that she got the award after marriage highlighted her belief that marriage has been lucky for her.“I was always told, that after marriage, a lot will change. I was thinking I might not have time to concentrate on my profession. I started having doubts whether I would be able to concentrate on chess. Luckily, my husband has given me equal support if not more. I am playing after marriage and I am able to travel a lot more. He shares all the happiness and helps me reduce my sorrows. He ensures that I can concentrate full-time on my game,” Harika said.Dronavalli resumed playing after seven months in the Women’s World Chess championship in Russia where she crashed out in the round of 16 but the 28-year-old was not too disappointed as she was coming back after a seven-month break. However, for Dronavalli, the saying, “Better late than never” applies perfectly to her life. The Padma Shri could lay the base for greater achievements in the near future for Harika.

New Delhi: When one talks about Harika Dronavalli in the realms of women’s chess in India, her list of accomplishments are staggering. An Asian U-12 gold medalist in 2002, Woman International Master at the age of 12 which made her the youngest to achieve the feat and 2006 World Youth Championship gold medal winner all made her a star even before she became a teenager. As the years progressed, more laurels followed. An Arjuna Award in 2007 was followed by strong performances in several world events for three to four years. At age 20, in 2011, Harika became a Women Grandmaster. In 2015, she had settled for bronze in the Women’s World Chess championship in Sharjah but in the 2016 Chendu Chess Grand Prix, Dronavalli finally scaled the summit.With so many accolades in chess, it was only a mere formality that Harika would be conferred with more awards. However, in 2016, she had applied for the Padma Shri, the fourth-highest civilian award in India but she was rejected. She was dejected but she kept on performing consistently. In 2017, after magnificent performances in the Women’s World Chess Championship, she once again settled for bronze. Finally, all her achievements were recognised and on Republic Day 2019, she was the recipient of the Padma Shri.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Carter Burnett brings home an Eagle looking trophy after finishing second at the Tulsa Nationals last weekend. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow —  Carter Burnett of Wellington just celebrated his ninth birthday this week, and he is already making a name for himself in the youth wrestling world.  Burnett, the son of Jason Burnett and Jennifer Doerge, recently came home from the 61st annual Tulsa Nationals with a second place trophy in the 8-year-old 75 pound division. The Tulsa Nationals, held Jan. 14-16 at the Expo Square Pavilion, was not your average youth wrestling tournament. It featured some of the best young wrestlers in the country – from Texas to Oklahoma to Iowa to Pennsylvania. Over 2000 young wrestlers from ages 4 to 16 years, representing 40 states participated in the three-day event. Burnett opened the tournament losing his first match of the day to an Oklahoma wrestler named Yocham 4-3. That threw him onto the consolation side of the bracket where he had some work to do. But he kept winning an worked his way up to fight for third place. That pit him in a rematch with Yocham. This time, though, Burnett came out victorious with an overtime victory. This was Burnett pinning his opponent to win second place as captured on a computer screen shot.The tournament has an option where a third-place winner can challenge for second, and Burnett did just that. R. Kucharczk of Virginia had placed second, but Burnett would win this challenge by pinning the 8-year-old in the first 36 seconds of the first period. Thus the transfer of second-place winnings went back to him. Burnett, who started wrestling in preschool, has had quite a year. He is currently 20-1 since November and has won tournaments in Ark City, Valley Center, Derby and Goddard during the early part of this season. He had finished fourth last spring in the Kansas State Youth Wrestling tournament.  “If you are not good, you don’t go,” said Jeff DeJarnett, head youth wrestling coach of the Tulsa Nationals. “He definitely is very determined to be the best and works hard. He is scared of nothing.” DeJarnett says he wrestles bigger and older kids at practice. “I would say he definitely has the heart of a champion and does not quit and gives you his all,” DeJarnett said. “He’s the best kid I’ve seen come through this program in a lot of years.” Burnett was greeted by his cousins upon his return to Wellington with his big eagle trophy.Burnett’s cousins greeted him home after his big moment in Tulsa.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
