Nebraska Farm Bureau Official Has Concerns With EPA Pushing China

EPA administrator Gina McCarthy says she intends to push Chinese officials on their climate control and air pollution efforts during her upcoming trip to China. Nebraska Farm Bureau National Affairs Coordinator Jordan Dux has concerns about that and how it may drift over and detrimentally effect U.S. ag trade.

Dux says the timing of McCarthy’s visit and push on China on environmental regulations is not good as it comes when the U.S. is trying to get beef back into the Chinese market and push forward pork trade.

The EPA administrator contends that while there is economic competition between the U.S. and China that both should share the same level of concern about climate change.
