After years of pursuing global emission reductions through multilateral agreements, more confrontational tides in international relations, intensified by U.S.-China rivalry, might unexpectedly drive stronger climate action.

The advent of plastic mulch has electrified agricultural output globally, with China leading the way in its application. Sadly, plastic fragments are now heavily polluting China’s agricultural soils.
