Spoken like a true "Little Eichmann".

Nothing beats presence at a technology conference by a representative of a global organization to make a point. I'm sure he did not fly on U.S. taxpayer's bill and received an honorarium to be there. His job is to warn us. Our response should be to pay heed. Now let's try to narrow the gap between the have and have-nots with modern global Information and Communications Technologies enabled by 'smart' semiconductors that exhibit intelligence and that are more than performance/power chip plays.

That is true! When the industry is already reducing a lot of physical travel by organizing webinars and live chat conferences and skype conference calls , these globe trotting leaders fly in private jets just to deliver the speeches prepared by their secretaries

Also, the guy flew to California to give the speech.... so having him lecture others about reducing their carbon footprint was perhaps a tad hypocritical....

Boring and rhetoric political speech. “Set ambitious targets,” said Hansen.... I do not think that there is anything new or innovative in this sentence.

They miss it. UN confuses ICT with core technologies. Only the semiconductor holds the capacity to make these changes. They need to understand that our industry is not ICT.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
