U.S. and China boost to climate talks

Yesterday, officials in Washington announced that President Obama will be attending the climate conference in Copenhagen next month. The U.S. also showed its hand on what it would pledge at the December talks – 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020 – which amounts to a drop of three percent below 1990 levels.

China have followed the U.S. is stating their targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Today it was China's turn to state their position. It was reported by China’s official Xinhua agency that Premier Wen Jiabao will commit China to cut the amount of carbon dioxide emitted for each unit of national income by 40 to 45 percent by 2020, compared to 2005 levels.

The news comes a day after the U.N.’s top climate official, Yvo de Boer announced that all countries must state in “black and white” what their emissions cuts will be.

With the world’s two biggest carbon polluters committing to cuts and their leaders attending the climate conference does this improve the chances of a deal being finalized next month? Or are the cuts too little too late? And what other climate measures would you like the U.S. and Chinese governments to commit to? Send us your comments.
