Update from Durban: China Offers Legally Binding Reductions?

Big news from Durban!

Besides the fact that we know everyone has arrived safe and sound and is in full swing at the climate negotiations, it looks like China has prepared a set of legally binding commitments that would force the country to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions after 2020. As the largest emitter of greenhouse gases, this is a potential breakthrough in the negotiations.

Now the question is – what will India do? India is the fourth largest emitter and has not put a similar proposal on the table.

Also, how will the US respond?

Let the negotiations begin!
