U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping announced the two nations would reduce their greenhouse emissions during the next few decades. The U.S. would cut its 2005 level of carbon emissions by 26% to 28% prior to 2025 under the terms of the deal. China would peak its carbon emissions by 2030 and would try to get 20% of its energy from zero-carbon emission sources by 2030.
"As the world's two largest economies, energy consumers and emitters of greenhouse gases, we have a special responsibility to lead the global effort against climate change," Obama said Wednesday in a joint news conference with Xi.
