Climate change requires decisive action from across the international community. Countries with a history of high emissions of greenhouse gases - such as the US and Australia – need to act. So too do growing economies such as China. So what are the US and China doing to reduce emissions? And what does this mean for Australia and its unique position as a high per capita emitter, major coal exporter, and political middle power? The world is watching.
