US And Brazil Commit To Climate, Renewable Energy Goals


WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff announced on Tuesday new joint efforts to confront climate change, committing the two nations to more aggressive targets for growing renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
During their meeting in Washington this week, the two presidents agreed to "intensify collaboration" and to "work with each other and with other partners to resolve potential obstacles towards an ambitious and balanced" agreement at the upcoming United Nations climate meeting in Paris.
"The global scientific community has made clear that human activity is already changing the world’s climate system, causing serious impacts, putting ever larger numbers of people at risk, posing challenges to sustainable development, affecting particularly the poor and most vulnerable, and harming economies and societies around the world, including in the United States and Brazil," the pair wrote in a joint statement issued Tuesday morning.
