Hudson Backs Biden on Paris Accord, but with Anti-China Conditions

Dec. 16, 2020 (EIRNS)—The Hudson Institute, looking for every possible avenue to crush China, released a report supporting Biden’s pledge to rejoin the Paris Accord, but added that there must be changes. Irwin Stelzer writes:

“While the Paris Accord requires America and other countries to reduce their emissions, China plans to lower domestically generated emissions by exporting them to other countries. Turkey, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Egypt, the Philippines, and other countries will host more than 300 coal plants currently being built or planned by China. Were Biden to postpone re-entry into the Paris Accord, there would be time to persuade U.S. allies to amend the requirements for China’s continued membership and count emissions from Chinese-financed coal plants as China’s responsibility.”
