U.S. and China pledge 'large-scale cooperative action' to reduce emissions

Secretary of State John Kerry signed climate change agreements with China and Japan over the weekend, making the issue he championed in the U.S. Senate a centerpiece of his first Asia tour. Both declarations of cooperation stressed practical measures aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mostly ignored the contentious U.N. climate change negotiations. But analysts said the agreement between the United States and China -- which pledged to to "set the kind of powerful example that can inspire the world" -- has the makings of a major move forward, putting the world's two largest emitters at the center of serious clean energy work.
