Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned the international community Tuesday to "proceed with caution" in negotiating a climate deal with the United States because the country could not make good on its commitment to reduce emissions by more than 25 percent over the next decade.
McConnell's statement came just hours after the U.S. government submitted its pledge to the United Nations ahead of the December climate talks in Paris. The Obama administration promised to cut carbon emissions by 26 to 28 percent by 2025, relative to 2005 levels.

Our only agenda is to cover energy and climate news accurately and fairly, giving you the information you need to know what's going on and to understand the context for new developments..
Energy development and regulation are at the forefront of national and state government and politics. Climate change is a big topic, and what role it should play in government policy is a huge issue in Washington and statehouses across the country. The news is full of stories about energy independence, the impact of energy development on the economy and the environment, and the impact of energy prices on consumers, business and the economy.
That's what we cover, with email newsletters every working day, plus this website. If you'd like to read more about EnergyGuardian, click here.
