Will the UN be able to pass a climate bill if they only get either China or America to back it?

    Yes, but it won’t mean anything.

    The UN can technically pass whatever it wants, so long as 66% of the member states agree, I believe.

    China and the US are both on the security council. This effectively means that they are above the law should any motion be placed against them, but otherwise the Security Council deals with articles 6 and 7 of the charter, primarily, which pertain to security (given the name).

    The main thing is that if either of the two biggest countries in terms of emissions chooses not to comply with UN regulations no one else will either- there’s just no incentive for them to if the damage is still being done.
