[Middle Column] Biden Can’t Have it Both Ways on Paris Climate Accord – Pact is ‘one of primary tools with which China is gaming the system’

"Under the 2015 agreement, the U.S. committed to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (about 81% of which is carbon dioxide (CO2)) by between 26% and 28% below its 2005 levels by 2025. China committed to stop increasing CO2 emissions by 2030. This asymmetry makes no sense, of course. Allowing China, which now emits about twice as much as America, to increase emissions over this period, while restricting the U.S., would result in even more industries moving to China. Total global CO2 emissions would then likely rise even faster." ...

"So, Biden has to decide—will he really work to prevent China from gaming the system or will he cave in to a treaty that institutionalizes it? He can’t have it both ways."
