China and USA annouce energy plans.

After bilateral talks this week, the worlds ‘biggest polluters’ made a joint announcement of their plans for future CO2 emissions.

President Barrack Obama announced the target of reducing the USA’s greenhouse gas emissions to 26-28 percent below the 2005 level by 2025. President Xi Jinping announced targets to reach peak CO2 by 2030 and increase the share of non-fossil fuel energy to around 20 percent by 2030.
