Bipartisan Congressional Delegation Presses for China-US Climate Action

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) led a bipartisan Congressional delegation to China last week, urging that "we must work together" to address global warming.

"We believe China and the United States can and must confront the challenge of climate change together," Pelosi said.

Pelosi noted that the opportunity for US-China cooperation on global warming requires urgent action:

“The impact of climate change has a tremendous effect in the United States, in China, and throughout the world,” she said. “We don’t have that much time or margin for error. We must come to agreement. We must act.”
