China commits to carbon cuts

UNITED NATIONS–America talked. Canada watched. But it was China that led yesterday in an unprecedented global gathering to meet the challenge of climate change.
In a vivid example of eastern leadership, President Hu Jintao told a United Nations summit of nearly 100 world leaders that China would voluntarily deliver a four-part package of near-term carbon-cutting commitments, including the planting of nearly 40 million hectares of emissions-absorbing forest.

Really like this....don't know what to call it!

I had not read the news about plans to plant the forest. I'm pleasantly stunned.
