“This trip helped me realize the importance of international cooperation in addressing global climate change through sustainable urbanization. China is undertaking massive infrastructure projects related to green energy and mass transportation, projects of scale and complexity simply not found in the U.S. In that regard, I think we can learn a lot from our Chinese counterparts on how to design, operate, and sustain forward-thinking infrastructure for our own cities.”
