In Breakthroughs, a publication of UC Berkeley's Rausser College of Natural Resources, Professor Dan Kammen, a former U.S. State Department science envoy who serves on the academic advisory committee for California-China Climate Institute, recently sat down with Governor Jerry Brown to discuss goals for the institute, how research can affect policy more quickly, and reasons for optimism on climate change.
China and the United States share a set of similar goals when it comes to climate change, which could help advance collaboration and inspire others around the world to work together toward curbing greenhouse gas emissions, according to a recent report and climate experts.

China on Friday released a draft blueprint of its latest Five-Year Plan for economic growth, and climate experts said it dashes hope that the world's largest greenhouse gas emitter would use the landmark document to meaningfully ramp up its response to global warming.
Just days after former U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was pulling the out of the Paris agreement, one U.S. state governor took climate concerns into his own hands.
China watchers hoped China’s latest five-year plan, the policy document dictating the country’s near-term economic strategy, would contain new details on how the country plans to hit peak greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, and maybe even move that date ahead a few years. But the plan, released on March 5, failed to deliver.
Environmental experts and policymakers said that climate change remains a "constructive part" of the US-China relationship, despite tensions in other sectors, and the world's two largest emitters of greenhouse gases should seize the opportunity to cooperate.

In 2017, during my final term as governor of California, I traveled to China in search of climate partnerships with both national and local authorities. I knew that California’s path-breaking vehicle emission standards and other climate laws would prove ineffective unless other states — and countries — enacted similar measures. If California wanted to succeed in forcing the big auto companies to cut their emissions and shift to zero-emission vehicles, there would be no better ally than China, whose market every car company coveted.
