Is U.S.-China Climate Action Possible in an Era of Mistrust?
May 27, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
The world can’t meet the challenge of climate change without aggressive action from both China and the United States, the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Yet, with U.S.-China relations at the lowest point in decades, competition rather than cooperation increasingly defines the relationship. What are the prospects for U.S.-China climate action? What is the likely role of collaboration or coordination? Will competition be constructive or destructive? Join us for a webinar discussion with UCLA environmental law professor Alex Wang on possible pathways forward for climate action and carbon neutrality in light of recent U.S. and Chinese announcements. This webinar will be moderated by GPS Professor Michael Davidson.
