EU climate package + quantum leap in laser technology
when the European Union puts the CO2 limit compensation into effect, the consequences will consequently also be felt in the People's Republic of China. Suppliers there may have to restructure their entire production to meet the requirements. The manoeuvre is a good example of how Europe can use its own strengths in the battle with its systemic rival. Namely, within the framework of standards and laws. Anyone who wants to make money from or in Europe simply has to abide by our rules. It is only up to us to draw up these rules consistently according to our interests. After all, the People's Republic of China does the same the other way round. A touch of level playing field, so to speak.
Meanwhile, researchers at the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics seem to be in a league of their own. The laser technology they have developed is said to be able to fire a beam that far outshines all other lasers in the world. Frank Sieren describes why this could also be of interest to ordinary mortals.
Meanwhile, sparrows are whistling from the rooftops that China's leader Xi and US President Biden could meet in person for the first time in October , at least in this constellation of offices. Did you know that a preliminary meeting for a preliminary meeting for the main meeting is necessary before the gentlemen are allowed to shake hands? No wonder geopolitics is so damn complicated.
