While it is important for China and the US, the two largest CO2 emitters, to walk hand in hand in cooperation, the agreement lacks "all of the above strategies" required to achieve the necessary reductions, says Janet Redman of IPS and Professor Minqi Li of the University of Utah
Minqi Li is an associate professor of economics at the University of Utah. He is the author of The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World Economy (Pluto Press, 2009) and the editor of Red China Website (a leading Chinese leftist website). Minqi Li has published many articles in the filed of political economy, the Chinese economy, global capitalist crisis, peak oil, and climate change.
With us to discuss these issues are Janet Redman and Professor Minqi Li.
Minqi Li is an associate professor of economics at the University of Utah. He's the author of The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World Economy and Peak Oil, Climate Change, and the Limits to China's Economic Growth. He's also the editor of Red China Network, a progressive Chinese website.
PERIES: So if we could start with you, Professor Li, what's in the accord in terms of China's commitments?
LI: Well, my understanding is that in this commitment, which the mainstream media claims to be historic, the U.S. side commits to a reduction of emissions by about 26 percent by 2025 compared to the year 2005.
REDMAN: So, as Dr. Li mentioned, there is a commitment by the United States to pledge--where it's pledged to cut its emissions by anywhere from 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.
But as Dr. Li mentioned, the substance, the content, is actually quite disappointing.
PERIES: And, Professor Li, what do you think of the negotiations and discussions that will have to take place between now and the Paris conference on climate change to really come to a more binding and tangible agreement?
LI: Well, I think most scientists would recommend that the world should be committed to a long-term global warming of no more than 2 degrees Celsius compared to the preindustrial time.
LI: Well, I think the Chinese government right now is still committed to a strategy to maximize economic growth using whatever energy that is available.

Minqi Li
Associate Professor, Department of Economics University of Utah
Dr. Minqi Li received a PhD in economics from University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2002. Upon completion of his PhD, Li became a visiting assistant professor at Franklin and Marshall College at Lancaster, Pennsylvania. From 2003 to 2006, Li was an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science of York University in Toronto, Canada. He has been teaching at Department of Economics of University of Utah since 2006.
From 2006 to 2010, Li published 1 peer reviewed book, 10 peer reviewed articles, 4 peer reviewed book chapters, 1 non-peer reviewed book, 4 non-peer reviewed articles, 2 non-peer reviewed book chapters, 4 working papers, 1 short article, and 2 book reviews. One of his books has been translated into Turkish. In addition, Li gave 13 conference presentations and 14 invited lectures or talks. In 2009, he was elected to be a member of the editorial board of Review of Radical Political Economics.
In recent years, Minqi Li's research has focused on the following areas: (1) the long-term movement of investment profitability and its impact on economic performance; (2) global financial imbalances with a focus on the Chinese and the US economy; (3) energy and environmental issues. All three issues are connected by a common theme: long-term cyclical movements and secular trends of the current world system. Studies on these issues contribute to better understanding of the historical evolution of the current world system and its possible future trajectories.
His recent book was The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World Economy (Pluto Press and Monthly Review Press 2009). Li has published several articles and given talks on many occasions on peak oil, climate change, and global economic crisis. Currently he is maintaining and updating an annual report on "Peak Energy and the Limits to Global Economic Growth."
