In the article U.S., China vow action on climate change, found at http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/11/17/china.climate.change/index.html?eref=rss_topstories&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fcnn_topstories+%28RSS%3A+Top+Stories%29&utm_content=Google+Reader from CNN, today's announcement on a climate change agreement between China and the USA created quite a stir. The article stated that, "Chinese President Hu Jintao and President Obama said their nations will cooperate to advance technologies and work toward a global agreement on reducing carbon emissions." This is a matter of great importance to the planet because for the first time, two of the great nations of the world are coming together to tackle climate change. China and the U.S are leading producers of carbon pollution in the world and it makes sense that they are stepping up to the challenge of climate change; but two is not enough, the whole world must participate before substantial progress can be made. Most importantly, this agreement comes in advance of next month's United Nation's conference on global climate change to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. The message that Obama and Hu Jintao are trying to send to the other nations of the world is that if the US and China can make progress on climate change, so can the rest of the world. Time will tell if this measure by China and the US can rally the world to reach a pact on cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
