Working together

“We both need to think big and be responsible. We both see that the challenge of climate change is an existential and severe one”


Statement of Chinese special climate envoy Xie Zhenhua during an unscheduled news conference held with the US at the COP26 summit in Glasgow, in which both nations symbolically pledged to work together to slow global warming and take “enhanced climate actions”. However, the Washington Post pointed out the joint declaration was “short on firm deadlines or specific commitments”.
