George Soros, the billionaire financier, unveiled a plan yesterday to lend poor countries $100bn to deal with the threat of climate change.
亿万富翁金融家乔治•索罗斯(George Soros)昨日提出一项建议:向穷国提供1000亿美元贷款,以应对气候变化的威胁。

The money would come from the International Monetary Fund, from financial instruments known as special drawing rights. These SDRs, used to create liquidity, are a type of basket “currency” used as an accounting unit by the IMF, and generally held by countries as part of their reserves.
这笔资金将来自国际货币基金组织(IMF)的金融工具——特别提款权(SDR)。这些SDR用于创造流动性,是一种篮子货币,被IMF用作核算单位,各国也普遍将其作为外汇储备的一部分。

Speaking at the UN climate conference in Copenhagen, Mr Soros argued the reserves were unnecessary and should be lent to developing countries, through a “green fund”.
索罗斯在联合国哥本哈根气候变化大会上发言时称,这部分储备是不必要的,应通过一个“绿色基金”,借给发展中国家。

“It is possible to substantially increase the amount available to fight global warming in the developing world by using the existing allocations of SDRs,” he said. “All that is lacking is the political will . . . Yet it could make the difference between success and failure at Copenhagen.”
“利用现有的SDR配额,有可能大幅增加发展中国家可用于抵御全球变暖的资金总额,”他表示。“目前唯一缺乏的是政治意愿……但这可能关系到哥本哈根会议的成败。”

No decision on Mr Soros's idea is likely at Copenhagen, but it could receive more attention in the coming months as rich countries struggle to agree how to finance pledges they make at the conference.
哥本哈根会议不太可能就索罗斯的提议做出任何决定,但随着富国难以商定如何出资、兑现自己在大会上做出的承诺,未来几个月这项提议可能会获得更多关注。
