Again: people worry about litterers, as well.

Litterers have no power.

Please note how I've just equated China with someone who strews trash about. You'll also note that the comparison is very apt....

In any event, you're kinda misinterpreting what's going on.

The world is working desperately to get everyone signed on to soft policy levers that have a long lead time rather than the interested parties using hard policy levers against China and India.

Both China and India can wreck the goals of this summit because the only real goal of it is to get both nations on board.  This is why nothing they do demonstrates any sort of power: the power to wreck a consensus is in the hands of anyone that decides not to participate.

It's already circulating in diplomatic circles that, should they not get on board, the parties who are interested in reducing the impact of climate change will move to a conflict-oriented rather than consensus-oriented strategy and begin imposing punitive tariffs on regimes that do not sign on.

The winds of change, as noted by you will bring about change in another hunded years or so too perhaps. Will your kids and grandkids be happy if others cackle with glee at China then? I think not. Remember, "what goes around comes around" and that is the same for you and yours.

A remarkable 44% of Americans believe China is the world's leading economic power and o ...


I think it because of credit crunch and global rescission. Only China, India and Indonesia don't effected much.

Credit crunch has psychological effect, people think their country is bankrupt, but in reality they still strong, rich and powerful.

Richer than China.

After everything back to normal, US and Europe will lead again.

Is China super power?

Reform and opening up the past three decades, while China's rapid economic development, comprehensive national strength significantly increased, all walks of life have shown vitality everywhere, has emerged as one of prosperity. But clear to see that, we still developing and the developed there is a great gap between the country. So, should always keep a cool head.
