    China and U.S. reach climate change deal.

    As part of the agreement, Mr. Obama announced that the United States would emit 26 percent to 28 percent less carbon in 2025 than it did in 2005. That is double the pace of reduction it targeted for the period from 2005 to 2020.
    China’s pledge to reach peak carbon emissions by 2030, if not sooner, is even more remarkable. To reach that goal, Mr. Xi pledged that so-called clean energy sources, like solar power and windmills, would account for 20 percent of China’s total energy production by 2030.

    While it is far from what we need, it is a sign of progress and an admission of responsibility by the two largest superpowers. Hopefully, this can be used to put pressure on other large-pollutant nations.

    I am glad they made a deal on climate change.

    I hope they got my email letting them know I prefer about 70 degrees and sunny on most days while mixing in a few cold days with snow storms here and there.

    If you think that this was a deal, you are profoundly gullible. This was merely an opportunity for Obama to look like he was addressing the issue. When you look at the details you see that China won't make any changes in their system, but the US will indeed make more of an effort. That will make us less competitive in the global market while China laughs at us. The timelines for change were not the same for each county. China had a very long time line to make changes while the US must act now.

    It is important to use critical thinking when you hear anything from this administration. They are brazen liars and have proven this repeatedly.
