environment, but i think that is more in the republican genes. the other thing worth pointing out, china is a real challenge to the united states on trade. one of our scholars who has covered trade for nearly 30 , an economist who is a true believer, and he has come out and said that we are continuing to turn the other digitalwards chinese mercantilism and intellectual property, and that is not viable. will jump into say, for example, the net neutrality e-mail is ambivalent on the issue, but came out very strongly in support of net neutrality not long afterward. if what we are ending up with is ambivalent on some issues, but persuadable, i will take that and i think the outcome, if you look at the secretary's evolution on some of these things, which is in response to the public's views, that is a good outcome. if we see politicians from the top down moving to respond when they are hearing from secretary clinton is clearly hearing some things, evolving her positions -- that's a wonderful outcome. peter: if there were a president trump, with net neutrality be reversed? if there were a preside

united states is much more serious than that. paul: who is the bigger threat, china or russia? gov. christie: russia is a bigger threat because their economy is in such bad shape. i don't see any reason at the moment why oil prices will go up. as a result there it economy will continue to be in bad shape. when countries are in bad shape economically, they act out around the world and keep their folks at home -- so over the next 10 years, russia is a greater threat. four years ago, mitt romney said in a debate with the president that russia was a great threat to us, and the president knocked him and said the 19 70's are calling and asking for their foreign policy back. it is a cute line. it is instructive to note that mitt romney was right about that and we should have listened to him and on a lot of other issues as well. paul: on the related topic, a question here, why does the united states not provide defensive weapons to pro-western democratic countries like ukraine, who are attacked by external forces coming from russia? gov. christie: i think we should be arming more folks aro

china and other countries that are big carbon emitters to participate and set targets for reduction of carbon pollution. africa, per capita, does not produce that much carbon. some african countries have said, why should we have to do anything? the answer is that you have to project where you will be 20 years from now, 30 years from now. if you get locked in now in the way you produce energy that is bruising a lot of carbon, given the use of africa and its thriving population, you could end up being a major carbon emitter if you do not make changes now. learn from these mistakes and find new and sustainable ways to generate energy that do not produce carbon. when i was in nairobi, i highlighted the work we're doing which has generated billions of dollars, with the goal of electrification throughout sub-saharan africa. part of what we're trying to encourage countries to do is, do not automatic take old models. think about new models of energy production and try to leapfrog. with solar energy, we are looking at solar panels you could send into rural areas, put on the roof of a hot, an

doctrinal debates that happen inside united states, we're watching in pakistan, india, and china increased their arsenals. i would say that we miss the opportunity to change the psychology of any aspirants to nuclear weapons. one other point is that some iranians, and are not suggesting that i believe everything they say, say that all along, we have not been listening. that iran's goal is to be like japan. which is to stop short of actually assembling or deploying nuclear weapons. but to demonstrate the technological ability so that only in extremist scenarios where they felt that their existence as a state was a risk, they would accelerate a program and go to the finish line. it took us a long time to trust japan. we are not ready to give iran that level, we don't have that level of confidence in iran. but i think we may be making some very glib assumptions that everybody in iran wanted to go all the way to a weapon, and that there is no internal constraints on them, in terms of going that far. mr. spence: we conflate a nuclear iran, and a nuclear power rhonda nuclear weapon. th
