Statement by Former Vice President Al Gore on China Creating the World's Largest Carbon Market

China’s move to create the world’s largest carbon market is yet another powerful sign that a global sustainability revolution is underway. With the top global polluter enacting policies to support the Paris Agreement and transition to a low carbon economy, it is clear that we’re at a tipping point in the climate crisis. Economic opportunities will flow to those countries who establish leadership in the markets of the future. American states, cities, businesses, investors, and citizens understand this opportunity. Leaders everywhere must choose to either act to solve the climate crisis, or watch their nations fall behind.
