- China’s leader, Xi Jinping says China has a plan to stop additional pumping carbon dioxide, the main global warming gas into the atmosphere by 2060 according to CP24 news. He noted that china is working to raise its emissions reduction by implementing “vigorous policies and measures” with CO2 peaking by 2030 and later declining.
European union also has a plan to be carbon neutral by 2050. Other global leaders have also set deadlines to be carbon neutral but USA as a global leader is yet to set or implement that kind of policy. Donald Trump’s administration is yet to set any major policy in response to climate change. He has been criticised by Democrats for not paying attention to the world’s number one threat which is a major concern.
Xi Jinping made the announcement during his speech at United Nations General Assembly this year.
