U.S., China Agree to Curb Greenhouse Gas Emissions

In November, The U.S. and China unveiled long-term plans to curb emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases linked to climate change, in a move that surprised climate change experts. The move is aimed at jump-starting a new round of international climate negotiations and lessen domestic opposition to cuts in both countries. As part of its plan, the U.S. said it would double the average pace of its carbon-dioxide reductions after 2020, eyeing an overall reduction of greenhouse-gas emissions of between 26% and 28% by 2025, compared with 2005 levels.
