China to announce major cap-and-trade program to curtail carbon emissions

The announcement comes out of a White House summit held this morning. President Barack Obama and President Xi have been collaborating for some time to develop strategic ways to reduce carbon emissions , in hopes of pressuring other nations to adopt similar goals. China is the world’s largest polluter, with most of the GHG emissions coming from industries like steel, paper, and electric power, much of which is coal-fired. White House officials say China’s cap-and-trade plan, which has been in development since April, builds on an earlier agreement that Xi and Obama reached last year in Beijing.
