>>117110726>Right, which is my point that if the US, EU and other nations came to trade agreement we could put pressure.
You clearly don't understand how trade works.
Question anon, what do you think China relies on the US and the EU for?
Because the US at least relies on China for>Raw materials>Agriculture (much of our pork is imported from China)>A significant amount of unskilled labor>A significant amount of machining equipment and electronics
Whereas China mainly just relies on the US' consumption, something that they've been relying less and less on in recent years thanks to the explosion of their middle class (420 million strong and growing every day), so much so that even major US companies like fucking Wal-Mart do a significant amount of business in Chinese retail.
Trade agreements wouldn't do anything because we HAVE nothing to trade besides our consumption, and thanks to our economy taking a giant hit in recent months, even THAT is questionable.>What is your pragmatic solution?
To climate change?
Invest in infrastructure that can withstand stronger hurricanes, higher sea levels, and larger storms.
Continue to create initiatives that lesson the carbon footprint of our industry.
Focus on how we can restructure our society to withstand the effects of climate change, because it's obvious that stopping it is no longer an option.
