Screw what we say to the Chinese. Sure China (and any other country) will just look at the example/learnings of the Germans. In fairness to the Germans, they put the house on wind and solar. The result: higher cost electricity, trouble in the grid and missed CO2 targets. The world owes the Germans a debt for these learnings but nobody will pay them for these lessons.If we do nothing, we cannot ask anyone else to cut emissions.
It is a basic test of ethics ... you cannot ask other to behave ethically, if you do not follow your own rules.
Ask China to cut emissions, and they say "Well, how many gigatons in emissions did you cut last year?". What's your come-back?
it is completely stupid for a small country to lead in this area. Mistakes are very expensive.
