US to bring emissions cut target to Copenhagen talks | Reuters

The United States will propose an emissions reduction target at U.N. climate change talks in Copenhagen in December with an eye toward winning support from U.S. lawmakers who must agree to put it into law.

A senior Obama administration official told reporters on Monday that Washington would make clear in the “next several days” what it planned to put on the table at the talks, and a greenhouse gas emissions goal — in line with proposals in the U.S. Congress — would be included.
