U.S. and China agree to curb greenhouse gas emissions

By on December 2, 2014

According to a recent press release from the White House, two of the world’s biggest producers of greenhouse gases, the U.S. and China, have agreed to start reducing emissions significantly: 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025 for the U.S. and tapering down after 2030 for China.

China also hopes to increase its percentage of alternative fuels to 20 percent by 2030. In the press release, both governments acknowledge that global warming cannot be refuted, and that human activity is causing it. Both countries acknowledge that deleterious effects have already resulted from climate change, such as unusual highs and lows in weather, decrease in food production, increasingly dangerous storms, increasing vulnerability of coastal towns and an overall negative global economic impact.
