The Lima Accord Is A Step In The Right Direction On Climate Policy

The agreement reached in Lima was enabled by the prior agreement between the US and China which indicated the willingness of the two largest carbon emitting nations to take serious steps to limit carbon emissions.  Climate scientists say that further steps are needed to meet their temperature increase target, but it sets the stage for further emission reductions as plans evolve in each nation.  It is clearly a big improvement over the Kyoto accord which was not approved by the US government.
