US-China Climate Relations: Cooperative Pathways or Competitive Crossroads?

Monday, March 11 at 5:30pm | Wayne Community College in Goldsboro

Featuring Angel Hsu, Assistant Professor in UNC’s Department of Public Policy as well as its Environment, Ecology and Energy Program

The US and China, jointly responsible for 40% of global emissions, hold a crucial role in addressing climate change. Collaboration between these top emitters is essential to tackle the ‘super-wicked’ climate crisis. Joint efforts leading to the 2015 Paris Agreement signaled progress, but domestic politics and geopolitical tensions have complicated this relationship. Conflicts over sovereignty and technology challenge the once robust US-China climate partnership. This talk examines the evolving US-China climate dynamic, exploring obstacles, potential cooperation, and its global impact.

Portraits of Climate Change

As a part of our “Portraits of Climate Change” initiative (generously supported by the North Caroliniana Society), we will be taking an exhibit of photographs from Southern Cultures’ fall 2023 issue, “Snapshot: Climate,” on the road in spring 2024. At our partner sites, these compelling images of climate change from around the American South will be on display alongside student photographs of climate change in North Carolina. Join us for the following exhibit openings, and keep your ear to the ground as we continue to announce further openings and associated programming!
