Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said geopolitics today requires “Nixonian flexibility” to help defuse conflicts between the US and China as well as between Russia and the rest of Europe.

metmike: China is bigger, stronger and smarter than the US and they play by rules that give them the biggest advantage........NOT our rules.
We are NOT going to change them a great deal and they KNOW we will lose if we try. Anybody that doesn't recognize that and, instead of working with them as much as possible, tries to oppose them beyond what they see reasonable .....will pay a price proportional to the magnitude/degree of opposition.

China is operating with the polar opposite energy plan as the United States kills abundant, reliable and power dense fossil fuels(which don’t need batteries) for ANTI environmental bird/bat killing wind and solar and very anti environmental batteries.
Keep in mind that CO2 is well mixed in the global atmosphere, so the CO2 cuts by the US and Europe will be SWAMPED by the increase in Asia.
One of them will see a positive contribution to economic health for that country.
One of them will be a disaster for the economy.
