Diplomatic, military tensions continue to rise in wake of Pelosi's Taiwan visit

Quick Summary

The White House "summoned" China's ambassador Qin Gang over China's provocative actions, spokesperson John Kirby said in a statement.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaks at a news conference with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen at the presidential office in Taipei, Taiwan Aug.3, 2022.

The action raises questions on the potential impact for global climate benchmarks, as China and the U.S.are the world's top climate polluters.Just last year, the U.S.and China issued a joint pledge to take "enhanced climate actions" to meet the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement of limiting warming to below 2 degrees Celsius.
