Clean Cookstoves Top Hillary Clinton's Agenda in China on Thursday

(CNSNews.com) - China has agreed to join the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, after touring a cookstove exhibit with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Beijing on Thursday.

It's one of several new U.S.-China "eco-partnerships" announced during Clinton's visit, which has been overshadowed by human rights concerns involving blind dissident Chen Guangcheng.

"This illustrates once again that the United States and China can and will work together in new ways and through many channels to address our common challenges on energy and the environment, two issues that transcend politics," Clinton said at a ceremony marking the cookstove agreement. She did not address the Chen situation in her remarks.

Clinton launched the Global Alliance, a public-private partnership, two years ago. The stated goal is to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women and combat climate change by bringing "clean and efficient cooking solutions" to families around the world. The total U.S. commitment to the cookstove project so far is $105 million.

China's participation will help the Global Alliance meet its goal of having 100 million homes adopt clean and efficient stoves and fuels by 2020.

The end goal = they’re after our wood stoves again...

without my wood stove to fill in after oil $$$ gone, I would’ve frozen by now.

the gov’t $ partners don’t make any money when we burn wood - we burn our own or pay locals for wood.

Fabulous. You cut back a little on stove smoke and in return we’ll allow you to get your hands on a bunch of high-tech exports. Can these people get any more irrelevant?

The State Department is helping US fail. One of the biggest re-distributors of US wealth. Any reason is used. This administration's goal is to equalize America globally....Jobs (GM), healthcare, currency, space program, free speech, military strength....anything we excel at.

What a load of excrement. China is abusing human rights of its people, harassing Christians and other religions in China. China is actively spying on the US to obtain military and business secrets. plus threatening countries nearby and the US. China makes US companies trying to do business in China partner up with Chinese companies which then steal the business, plus makes it hard for our companies to move profits out of China. China is a major bully which is becoming our military rival.

All this and Hillary is happy about cook stoves?

Killing babies and Christians is not offensive to her god.
Polluting stoves are offensive to her god.

The people at permies have vids on making one.
The stove at USH2 is one you buy (and much smaller).

Interesting that all the books in that background are of differing colors -- but are of uniform size. Real reading material doesn't work like that -- even in Chinese...

Fake "for show" library -- with dummy books -- anyone?
