Interviews by Carbon Brief on China-US Climate Policy and COP 26

    Press/Media: Research


    I have been interviewed by Carbon Brief in early August and late September 2021, respectively, via written questions. The first one was main on the upcoming meeting between the US-China Climate Envoys, Mr John Kerry and Mr Zhenhua Xie, and the likelihood of US-China cooperation. The second was more on China's energy situation and its 30-60 climate pledges, and the likely implications of the ongoing US-China tension on COP26.

      DescriptionJohn Kerry, US President Biden’s climate envoy, plans to visit China “later this month” for a new round of talks with his Chinese counterpart, Xie Zhenhua, according to Foreign Policy. Kerry intended to say that “Beijing’s pledge to wait until 2030 to start seriously cutting emissions isn’t nearly enough”, the outlet wrote. Kerry last visited China in April to discuss US-China climate cooperation with Xie.
