Last week, President Obama announced he had cut a carbon deal with China that would require the U.S. to take drastic action to reduce emissions while asking little of China in return. While the U.S. would commit to new reductions by 2025, China’s President Xi Jinping did not commit to any emissions reductions and only pledged to try and cap emissions by 2030.
