Obama's unlikely climate change partner: China

NOT a surprise. China is a major trading partner and by far leading the US in actual ACTION on the climate. Despite their basic dependence on their domestic coal supply, they have been working far harder than most countries to be able to scale that back.
I personally think that the US and China should develop a molten salt thorium reactor. It would give them a clean energy supply (they have copious quantities of thorium available) while eliminating the cost of a US only test reactor if the US adopts it as the 'next generation' to replace current aging reactor designs.
