This article by the Guardian reports on a recent deal between two of the world’s most powerful nations aimed at curbing CO2 emissions:
The United States and China on Tuesday signed eight partnership pacts to cut greenhouse gases, bringing the world’s two biggest carbon emitters closer together on climate policy.
In one of the memoranda of understanding (MOUs), China’s Huaneng Clean Energy Research Institute, a subsidiary of state-owned power company China Huaneng and Washington-based Summit Power Group agreed to share information on clean coal power generation technology.
Another project partners West Virginia University with Yanchang Petroleum on an industrialized demonstration of ultra-cleaning technology in northern Shaanxi province.
Whilst the Great Waves text affirms that many solutions will be needed to adapt to the changing world, this event serves as a demonstration of nations cooperating to mitigate the damaging effects that human activity is having on the world. Many more actions like this will be needed at many levels in order for humanity to survive and prosper in the future.
