WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- The United States will pledge Tuesday to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by up to 28 per cent as part of a global treaty aimed at preventing the worst effects of climate change, according to individuals briefed on the White House's plans, CBC News reported.

The administration's contribution to the treaty, which world leaders expect to finalize in December, codifies a commitment President Barack Obama first made late last year in Beijing, when he announced a joint U.S.-China climate deal that raised global hopes that developed and developing nations can come together to fight climate change.

The U.S. proposal has drawn intense interest around the world. Most nations will miss Tuesday's informal deadline to convey their contributions to the UN — only the European Union, Switzerland and Mexico unveiled their pledges before the U.S. By announcing its commitment early, the U.S. hopes to dial up the political pressure on other countries to take equally ambitious steps to cut emissions. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/climate-change-treaty-will-include-promise-of-28-emissions-cut-from-u-s-1.3015926" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
