Deborah Seligsohn, the World Resources Institute’s principal advisor in the China Climate, Energy and Pollution Program talks about increasing understanding and cooperation between the US and China. She argues that China is taking important steps toward reducing pollution and increasing energy efficiency, and details many of the advances China has made since a sputtering start in 2006. She draws parallels between China today and the US and Europe in the 1960s in terms of development and pollution controls, and she explains China’s need for technical support from wealthy countries.
