U.S. energy secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a speech at a domestic energy conference that Americans should not blindly criticize China on emission reduction, but also be themselves.
But then she was scolded for her remarks.
Judging from the reports of some American media that reported the matter, Granholm’s original statement at that time was:
“(climate change) is a global problem. China is a big factor leading to this problem, but so are we. But if we do not take action and use the science and technology we need to use, we have no moral obligation to ask others what to do”.
Of course, Granholm’s statement is not very accurate. After all, the most important and fundamental factor leading to the current climate change problem is the large amount of fossil energy burned in the industrialization process of the developed countries led by the United States over the past century. Therefore, the United States and other countries should bear the main responsibility.
However, the U.S. energy secretary at least recognized that the United States needs to bear a lot of responsibilities and knew that the United States will have no face to tell other countries if it does not act. It is really rare for the United States, which has become more and more selfish and self encouraging in recent years, to say that she should not “low-level black” China.

Sadly, many people in the American public opinion field did not even have such a minimum understanding. Even they abused Granholm and labeled her “adultery with China”.
For example, Ted Cruz, a right-wing Anti China politician of the US Republican party who has been blackened by China, attacked Granholm on his social account, which shows that “the Biden government is kowtowing to the Communist Party of China and has reached a new height”.
