As the COP26 climate conference is underway, one member is missing. Chinese leader Xi Jinping did not even attend. Rather, he sent a letter instead. Why is the top polluter in the world not in attendance? I discuss exactly how unserious the Chinese regime really takes climate change. Plus, have you ever wondered what “common prosperity” really means? It’s a new political slogan from China and it’s worth discussing. 

Also, I caught up with David Sauer, a former CIA officer, at the China Forum 2021. Watch our interview on China’s intellectual property theft. We discuss how it’s an unfair competition with China, knowing they steal technology worth billions of dollars.
