Positive Signs For Global Climate Change Treaty As China, U.S. Work Together, New York Times Reports

“[W]ith China having recently surpassed the United States as the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases, the countries are finding that their interests increasingly overlap, climate experts and government officials say … [and t]he more productive relationship is raising hopes that the friction of recent years may be easing, paving the way for a new global climate change treaty in 2015,” the New York Times reports. “International delegates have been meeting in Warsaw to negotiate the provisions of that treaty. The conference is scheduled to end Friday,” the newspaper notes and describes the countries’ positions (Jolly/Buckley, 11/21).
