    The US tells China that (i) China already emits more CO2 than the US, and (ii) US per capita emissions are down 5% since 1990.

    China tells the US that the US is responsible for, cumulatively, 3x the CO2 emissions of China.

    The US tells China that over the last decade, the median wage in China has more than doubled, while it's stagnated in the US.  Therefore, it would be irresponsible to increase energy costs in the US.

    And it can go on and on.

    People have already relocated.  Ten thousand years ago, many in the Americas had a great ocean view from their settlements on the land bridge connecting Yucatan to Cuba.
