China Agrees To Greenhouse Gas Cap; U.S. Will Accelerate Cuts

This is not just about “cementing a legacy”, this is caring about the future of the human species.

Yes, those pesky regulations … killin’ jobs again!! Who needs clean air or safe work environments??!? Why, wanting people to have better lives and a brighter future is downright un-American!!
