This is quite a correction from the Los Angeles Times:
Emission goals: An article and graphic in Friday’s Section A about China’s pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions stated that the nation had vowed to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions 40% to 45% below 2005 levels by 2020. China promised to reduce its “carbon intensity,” a measure of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of gross domestic product, by 40% to 45% by 2020, compared with 2005 levels. A headline accompanying the article was also incorrect in saying that “China meets, beats U.S. on emission reduction goals.” Whereas the U.S. plans to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to below 2005 levels, China’s emissions could actually increase, depending on its economic growth.
(Chris Horner had the facts on Friday.)
