Pelosi Talks Climate Change in China

The Associated Press has the story:

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged Beijing on Thursday to cooperate on climate change, calling a safe environment a basic human right.

Speaking at Beijing’s elite Tsinghua University, Pelosi continued the theme of her five-day China trip – that combating global warming represented a new challenge that both governments must tackle jointly.

“We are all in this together,” Pelosi told an audience of about 200 students and faculty who applauded enthusiastically throughout the 45-minute session. “The impact of climate change is a tremendous risk to the security and well-being of our countries.”
