In response to the CFR.org Online Debate, “Should the Next U.S. President Adopt a Tougher Stance on Trade Policy with China?,” reader Nicholas T. Dahlheim writes:
I think the key to addressing the future of US-China trade relations must be a shared commitment bilaterally to a common green economy weaned of fossil fuels. At the veryminimum, a cessation of the construction of coal-fired plants and the outfitting of existing ones with CCS devices must be a policy. Alongside this must be the creation of the kind of wind generation capacity experts like Lester Brown have long argued quite convincingly is waiting to be tapped in China.
