Abstract:

A new comprehensive program for cooperation between the United States and China that focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and thus mitigating the potentially catastrophic effects of climate change, is both necessary and possible. Indeed, as this Report suggests, if human beings hope to avoid the worst consequences of global climate change, the United States and China--respectively the world's largest developed and developing nations, the two largest energy consumers, and the two largest producers of greenhouse gases--have no alternative but to become far more active partners in developing low-carbon economies.
