According to The A-list, the recent US-China joint announcement on climate change and energy is the most important advance for many years.
China has agreed a clear target to reach a peak of CO2 emissions no later than 2030, with the intention of trying to peak earlier than 2030. The US’s failure to act decisively on its own emissions for two decades has long been defended by the Senate on the basis that the US should act only if China does as well. Now it is running out of excuses.
Are you feeling hopeful?
