This won’t end up well for Biden either if he actually tries to engage with the participants verbally.

Xi will give an "important speech" at the meeting, said the Chinese foreign ministry, days after a trip to Shanghai by U.S. climate envoy John Kerry -- the first official from Biden's administration to visit China.

Looking forward to that "important speech". Pretty safe to assume that it will be full of all sort of miraculous declarations of what the CCP will do in the next 60 years. Meanwhile in the real world, the CCP took in operation in 2020 alone more coal power plants than are in operation in all of Europe.

Hope they talk about agriculture and it's affects on climate change as well

Actually, his speech will be something like: "We are the Chicoms. Resistance is futile".

Of the 50% half of the total, from what I have read, it is 10% from America and 40% from China.

What is the photo source of that Chinese photo and where in China, or is it a generic Getty image?

Xi, the Pooh, will anyone seriously believe such a leader's promises? Occupation of Tibet, the Uighers concentration camps, Hong Kong, hackings around the world, stealing intellectual property and technological know-how, Covid 19 virus , bullying countries in the South China sea, etc... The CCP should not be trusted. Full stop.

No global solution on climate change is likely without both the U.S. and China on board, since the world's top two economies together account for nearly half of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions.

The US is the top polluter per capita, while China is the top total polluter since it has a lot more people

Xi will have some headline grabbing "commitment" where all of the disavowing fine print comes out later and the media will take the bait (again).

Funny watching the US think it can "regain leadership" on this front, when the world knows neary half of America's population don't agree with anything they propose. How can you lead when there is a very real possibility of drastic changing in direction every 2 to 4 years?

It’s always funny when a Trump supporter criticizes anyone’s communicative ability.
