California to Sign UN Compact to Help China Cut Emissions

From AP:

California, which puts out more greenhouse gases than any other state, is promising to share ideas and research to help China cut back on its own emissions, which rival those of the U.S. as the world’s largest.

Despite its output, California is leading efforts to curb emissions. The state’s top environmental official is in Beijing to sign an agreement with the United Nations to help China’s efforts.

According to the four-page agreement to be signed Tuesday on Earth Day, the state also would mobilize public agencies and encourage private entities in California to support climate change projects in China.
