POWER THE FUTURE
In the first meeting between top US and Chinese officials under the Biden administration, things started off a bit testy. The mini-summit, held in Anchorage, began Thursday and wrapped up Friday. They involved Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan on the US side, sitting across the table from China’s most senior foreign policy official, Yang Jiechi, and foreign minister Wang Yi.
BBC noted the “sharp rebukes” and “ill-tempered talks” between the two nations, going so far as to state:
In a blunt opening statement before the talks in private, Mr. Blinken said the US would “discuss our deep concerns with actions by China, including in Xinjiang, Hong Kong, Taiwan, cyber attacks on the United States, economic coercion of our allies.”
A glaring subject was omitted from the list, especially as it relates to Biden’s stated policy priorities: climate change.
Power The Future’s Alaska State Director Rick Whitbeck heard from sources that climate change was to be a “front and center” issue, but then was taken off the table midday Thursday.
Why? If you listen to the eco-radicals who propped up the Biden campaign and will end up placing hundreds of “true believers” into key administration posts, getting China to act on climate has to be a US priority.
Here’s a hint: Because “climate change” is only a posturing priority when it comes to sucking in Americans who would rather see US national and economic security weakened, and make the American public more dependent on a larger, more wide-reaching federal government.
“Climate change” is given its vast amount of media coverage because Americans allow it; they feed off the “existential threat” narrative, and encourage the story to be perpetuated by the mainstream media over and over again.
Because if the climate was such a critical issue, it would have been the topic of conversation between the countries, not one pushed aside at an initial meeting.
