Experts in U.S. and China See a Chance for Cooperation Against Climate Change

Climate change will be one of the many important topics in the discussions between the US and Chinese administrations, as reported by New York Times.

[A]n increasing number of officials and scholars from both countries say climate change is likely to become another focal point in the dialogue. American and Chinese leaders recognize the urgency of global warming, the scholars and officials say, and believe that a new international climate treaty is impossible without agreements between their nations, the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

[…] Two reports being released Thursday propose ways for President Obama and Chinese leaders to begin addressing together, as a major priority, how to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases linked to rising temperatures.

One report, “A Roadmap for U.S.-China Cooperation on Energy and Climate Change,” is a joint project of the Asia Society and the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, both based in the United States. Scientists and policy advisers from both countries contributed to the report. […] The other report, by two Brookings Institution fellows, David B. Sandalow and Kenneth G. Lieberthal, presents a menu of nine ways to build political support in both countries for sustained cooperation on cutting emissions.
