US and China jointly pledge to step up efforts to fight climate change during COP26

GLASGOW – The US and China jointly pledged at the United Nations climate summit to step up action to fight climate change over the next decade, entering talks here with a surprising collaboration between the two rivals and the world’s two largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

But the two rejected a proposal from the UK, the summit’s host, for countries to update their emissions reduction plans by the end of next year. That proposal, put forward earlier in the day, was seen as a way to bridge the gap between what governments have promised to reduce and what scientists think is needed to avert the worst effects of climate change.
