China emphasises on commitment to Paris accord as Donald Trump undoes US climate policy 29.3.2017 DNA: Top News
China is still committed to the Paris climate change accord agreed in 2015, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, after US President Donald Trump signed an order to dismantle Obama-era climate change regulations. Trump's main target is former president Barack Obama's Clean Power Plan, which required states to slash carbon emissions from power plants - a key factor in the United States' ability to meet its commitments under the climate change accord reached by nearly 200 countries in Paris. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said climate change was a common challenge for everyone and the Paris agreement was a landmark that came about with the hard work of the international community, including China and the United States. China is keen to be seen leading the way in reducing climate change which Trump has in the past dismissed as a "hoax". "We still uphold that all sides should move with the times, grasp the opportunities, fulfil their promises and earnestly take proactive steps to jointly push ...

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has spoken to a Hong Kong audience by hologram, showcasing the growing reach of a technology which is making inroads into politics, entertainment and business.
