US-China Climate Agreement: Cautious Welcome

The US-China Climate Agreement is a tentative, but significant step in the right direction. This agreement could be one of the most important steps taken in international climate negotiations to date.

Now that the COP26 conference has come to an end, there are many questions about how this will affect our future on earth. The hope is that this collaboration will lead to more countries joining together and working towards greenhouse gas emissions reductions goals set by all parties involved.

One thing remains clear, however. This agreement will play a big role in the future of climate negotiations. It is unlikely that this action alone will solve the problem alone. By some estimates, even if all parties involved completely abide by their individual promises, global warming could still rise more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels by 2100.

Additionally, the agreement leaves a lot of important decisions to future meetings, so it remains unclear if and when concrete action will be taken. Only time will tell how successful this cooperation will be in the long run. However one thing is clear: At COP26 in 2016, China and the United States made an important commitment by agreeing to cooperate in the future.

International agreements are not easy to come by. While this agreement is certainly a major step in the right direction, it will take more than just international cooperation to solve the issue of climate change. It will also require each individual country taking responsibility for their actions and making an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Developing nations must also play an integral role in fighting climate change.

One thing is for certain, however. The agreement reached between China and the United States at COP26 is not just a step in the right direction, it is also a tangible step towards solving one of the most important issues humanity has ever faced.
