Hopeful Signs in China

Looks like Hillary's decision to focus efforts on China is leading in the right direction.
China said Thursday it was willing to work with the United States on addressing climate change, saying such efforts were vital to fighting global warming.

"Strengthening cooperation on climate change is in the interest of the two countries and conducive to our two nations contributing to international climate change cooperation," foreign ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said.

"We would like to work with the US to make concrete progress on this issue."

In this Reuters account, Jiang also stated that the economy won't be a scapegoat for inaction:

"Although we have been affected by the global economic crisis, the Chinese government's resolve to tackle climate change has not changed, and our actions have not weakened."

And finally:

"We are willing to work together with international society to push the Copenhagen talks forward and make sure they have a positive outcome."

You gotta start somewhere.
