China Pledges, At U.N., To Cut Emissions

China has pledged to take firm action on climate change at the U.N. Climate Change Summit in New York and said it will ensure its carbon dioxide emissions peak as early as possible. Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli said in a speech that China will “make greater effort to more effectively address climate change.” He said China will announce post-2020 actions on climate change “as soon as we can” and that these would include “marked progress in reducing carbon intensity” and “the peaking of total carbon dioxide emissions as early as possible.”
