Hu Jintao Speaks on Climate

Chinese President Hu Jintao spoke at the UN summit on climate change. President Hu vowed action at curbing carbon emissions, but mentioned no specific targets that his nation is willing to accept. The Chinese President promised a cut of its carbon intensity (carbon emissions per GDP) by a “notable margin” by 2020. A reduction in carbon emissions is unlikely because China’s GDP is estimated to greatly increase by 2020. For more information, click below:
