China works for 'win-win' climate plan; poised for UN pledge 30.6.2015 DNA: Top News
China seeks a fair, global system to tackle climate change and will deliver its pledge to the United Nations by the end of Tuesday on how much it will cut emissions, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said after talks with top European Union officials. Time is running out for China to deliver its U.N. submission in the first half of this year, as it has said it will do. Once China, the world's biggest emitter, has submitted its so-called Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) ahead of U.N. climate talks in Paris late this year, pledges submitted will cover more than half the world's emissions. "We will make strenuous efforts to address climate change," Li said in Brussels. "By the end of this month, the Chinese side will submit to the U.N. secretariat on climate change our Intended Nationally Determined Contribution plan."

If Britain fails to meet its own ambitions on climate change, we lose opportunities for increased food production, new jobs, and new growth areas

In November, representatives from 196 countries will meet in Paris to try to agree a deal to prevent dangerous increases in global temperatures.

Efforts to date aim to begin the “peaceful divorce” between greenhouse gas emissions and economic growth: no longer do the two need to go together. Last year was the first year where the world economy grew but greenhouse gas emissions did not. We wait to see if this is an indication of a broader trend or a blip.
