China and the United States produce an estimated 40% of the greenhouse gas emitted worldwide; while the two countries have not always agreed upon how to tackle climate change, a renewed focus on environmental issues may provide the basis for cooperation in the spirit of halting climate change.

China scholar and former White House adviser Kenneth Lieberthal recently co-authored a report for the Brookings Institution that outlined a number of ways China and the United States can collaborate to combat global warming.

Among Lieberthal’s suggestions are the creation of a framework for energy cooperation, a US-China summit that highlights clean energy, and co-development of technology, according to the Taipei Times. Stats for Cooperation for Climate Change Trending: Older & Chilly
