US Finally Agrees to Climate Change Deal in Bali
Over a dramatic rollercoaster ride of ups and downs at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bali, Indonesia, the United States has finally accepted a global agreement to work towards reducing carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. As expected, the White House initially rejected the agreement, but after the conference got pushed into overtime, and after facing intense booing and protests from other delegations, the White House was finally convinced to accept a compromise and sign the deal. Delegates from 187 countries agreed last Saturday to negotiate a new international agreement over the next two years, which (not so coincidentally) extends the debate into a new US presidential term.
