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.
