The United States and China have struck a historic agreement to cut greenhouse gasses over the next two decades.
President Obama and President Xi Jinping ironed out the new deal Wednesday at the tail end of the trade summit in Beijing.
As part of the agreement, the U.S. says by 2025, it will trim a little over a quarter of the carbon emissions levels from 2005. China will peak its carbon emissions by 2030 and plans to employ several green energy initiatives as well.
