Are China and the US closing on a climate deal?

It's early days, but growing cooperation on climate policy between America and China could be the precursor to a global deal, albeit one without international treaties imposing carbon caps.

Growing bilateral cooperation between the United States and China to curb carbon emissions may lead to a shift in action towards voluntary national policy and away from international treaties imposing carbon caps.

That shift may be beneficial for climate action, by garnering wider support than that achieved by failed efforts in the past to corral all countries into a binding treaty.
