The historic emissions deal between China and the U.S. removes a key barrier in United Nations-led efforts to craft a global climate pact. Now President Barack Obama has to find a way to make it happen at home.

With Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping now in accord that the world’s two largest economies bear a certain responsibility to take the lead in fighting climate change, other nations may be more willing to follow suit when envoys meet in Lima next month for the next round of UN-organized negotiations. “This could be a first critical step to unlocking the logjam in the climate-change negotiations,” said Yvo de Boer, who oversaw the UN effort on global warming from 2006 to 2010, in a telephone interview from Seoul. “It becomes much … [Read more...] about World cheers U.S., China carbon deal as Republicans jeer
