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.
