China and the US agree to low-carbon future

China and the US agree to low-carbon future
China and the US have committed themselves to the transition to a low-carbon economy.

US president Barack Obama and Chinese leader Hu Jintao signed a joint statement agreeing to the necessity of the move last week.

The two governments revealed that they would be working together to deliver a joint research facility to promote cleaner energy plants, eco-friendly buildings and green transport options.

In addition, the presidents pointed out the substantial economical opportunities the transition to a low-carbon economy would bring, with the creation of new green jobs.

The news comes one month ahead of the crucial climate change conference in Copenhagen which is due to take place next month.

"Our aim there, in support of what the prime minister [Lars Lokke] Rasmussen of Denmark is trying to achieve, is not a partial accord or a political declaration, but rather an accord that covers all of the issues in the negotiations and one that has immediate operational effect," Mr Obama said.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19472387-ADNFCR
