你不知道的袁隆平爷爷

谈到袁隆平爷爷,大家首先想到的一定是“杂交水稻之父”对吧,他对人类做的贡献,已经无法用“丰功伟绩”这四个字来形容了。可是,袁隆平爷爷会说英语这回事,相信很多人都第一次听到吧~

近日,一段袁隆平英语演讲的视频在网上疯传。7月11日,在第十届海外高层次人才座谈会暨海外院士青岛行“雁栖湖论坛”中,全国政协常委、中国工程院院士、美国科学院院士袁隆平以流利英语完成了一次长达20分钟的演讲。无数网友对这样一位耋耄之年的老人还能说英语感到吃惊,纷纷致敬“中国脊梁”。

A video clip of China's "father of hybrid rice," Yuan Longping, speaking English has become a sensation on Weibo, China's version of Twitter.

一段中国“杂交水稻之父”袁隆平讲英语的视频在中国版推特微博上引起了轰动。

The 87-year-old spoke at the 9th Shandong high-level talents forum in Qingdao. Yuan presented hybrid rice to the world in a 20-minute speech. "I speak broken English," the octogenarian started, but during the rest of his speech, Yuan neither paused nor made any mistakes.

87岁的他在于青岛举行的第九届山东高层次人才论坛上发表了演讲。在20分钟的演讲中,袁隆平向世界展示了杂交水稻。“我英语说的不好,”这位耋耄老人开讲道,但是在接下来的演讲中,他既没停顿,也没犯任何错误。

袁隆平在演讲中谈到:

It is expected that 60% more rice should be produced in 2030 than that in 1995. Currently, 1 ha. for rice production provides food for 27 people. By 2050, 1 ha. will have to support 43 people.

据估计,2030年全球水稻产量应比1995年增加60%以上才能基本满足人类需求。目前每公顷所产稻谷能养活27人,但到2050年,每公顷所产稻谷必须要养活43人才行。

If 50% of the conventional rice is replaced by hybrid rice, and estimating on a 2 t/ha yield advantage of hybrid rice, it is estimated that the total rice production in the world will be increased by another 150 million tons, which can feed 400 million more people each year.

如果全球有一半的常规水稻面积改种杂交水稻,按每公顷增产2吨稻谷估算,则全球可增产1.5亿吨粮食,这相当于每年可多养活4亿人。

The audience applauded Yuan's outstanding scientific contribution and the wonderful speech he presented. The video was searched 200,000 times and played over 100 million times by noon on July 12.

观众为袁隆平杰出的科学贡献和精彩的演讲鼓掌。截止7月12日中午,该视频被搜索了20万次,并被播放1亿余次。


"Yuan has made huge contributions to the country's agricultural development. He has fed generations of people," one net user wrote. "It's a surprise that Yuan can speak English at his age," another commented.

一名网友写道:“袁隆平为我国的农业发展做出了巨大贡献。他解决了几代人的粮食问题。”另有网友评论道:“袁隆平在这个岁数还能说英语简直太意外了。”

Yuan in 2016 launched a research and development center focusing on "sea rice". When fully operational, the variety can produce 50 billion kilograms of grain, able to feed 200 million people.

2016年,袁隆平成立了一家科研中心,专注于“海水稻”。在全面运营时,该水稻能够产出500亿千克粮食,能够养活2亿人。
