A big payoff from US-China climate coordination

With provisions to cut US emissions by 40 per cent from 2005 levels by 2030, the Inflation Reduction Act has revived America’s global climate leadership. Since most of these reductions will come from a cleaner electricity sector, which is projected to be 70-85 per cent carbon-free by 2030, the United States will be well positioned to collaborate with others on decarbonisation of the power sector, starting with China.
