The Climate Leaders Declaration and a series agreements were signed Tuesday by US governors and mayor with their Chinese counterparts who attended the China-US Climate Leaders Summit in Los Angeles.

The two-day meeting Nike Air Max 98 Womens Australia , with a full name of "China-US Climate-SmartLow Carbon Cities Summit," was the first of its kind at the provincial and city level between the two countries.

It fulfills a key element of the China-US Joint Announcement on Climate Change by Chinese President Xi Jinping and US Presidents Barack Obama last November, which has a part to implement the climate goal of each country at local government level.

The Summit "shows the determination of both countries to continually deepen and strengthen cooperation on climate change, and to engage city, state, municipal Nike Air Max 90 Womens Australia , private-sector, and NGO partners in this critical effort," the White House said.

Yang Jiechi, the Special Envoy of President Xi and US Vice President Joe Biden will attend the closing ceremony Wednesday.

Chinese cities and provinces Beijing, Shenzhen, Wuhan Nike Air Max 97 Womens Australia , Guangzhou, Sichuan, Hainan, Guiyang, Zhenjiang, Jinchang Nike Air Max Womens Australia , Yanan and Jilin, and US states and cities including California, Connecticut, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston Nike Air Max 93 Mens Australia , Portland, Seattle, Houston, Salt Lake City, Des Moines, Carmel signed the Declaration and other working agreenments Nike Air Max 180 Mens Australia , such as the California-China Urban Climate Collaborative (CCUCC) and the Memorandum of Understanding between the cities of Shenzhen and Los Angeles and similar agreements between other cities.

As the world's largest developed and developing nations, the US and China represent about 40 percent of the world's carbon emission, California Govenor Jerry Brown said, and as most of the population are in cities, the actions of cities are very important.

"The summit provides an opportunity for local leaders to exchange their experience of practice and learn from each other," Xie Zhenhua Nike Air Max 270 Mens Australia , Chinese special representative on climate change issues, said at a press conference after the opening ceremony.

"I heard that about a dozen of Chinese cities are commited to reach the peak years for carbon dioxide emissions earlier than the national goal by around 2030. It is very impressive, " Todd D. Stern, the Special Envoy for Climate Change at the US State Department, said in his speech at the summit.

China announced to cut carbon dioxide emissions per unit of gross domestic product (GDP) by 60 to 65 percent from the 2005 level by 2030 in its "Intended Nationally Determined Contributions,"submitted earlier this year to the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Some US state and city governments also set ambitious carbon-reduction targets.

California announced to reduce emissions by 80 to 90 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. Los Angeles has a goal of cutting emissions to 45 percent below 1990 levels by 2025 Nike Air Max 98 Mens Australia , 60 percent below 1990 levels by 2035 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, and the City of Seattle is committed to become carbon-neutral by 2050.

"Cities lead, mayors lead. When we do something, things will be changed," said Houston Mayor Annise Parker.

Several forums and roundtable talks will be held during the two-day summit, discussing city carbon reduction Nike Air Max 90 Mens Australia , renewable energy, environmental friendly business and other related topics.

The second China-US Climate Leaders Summit will be held in Beijing next year, Xie said.

BEIJING, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Chinese lawmakers on Tuesday suggested accelerating legislation on soil pollution and the rural eco-environment while reviewing the State Council's first report on annual environmental work.

At an ongoing bi-monthly session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), lawmakers voiced concerns over soil contamination, citing statistics from the 2015 environmental report and recent media coverage of an alleged link between soil pollution and students' health in the eastern city of Changzhou.

Serious soil contamination has been detected in the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and the old industrial base in the northeast, and extremely high heavy metal in the soil of many parts of southwest and central-south regions, the report showed.

Recently, blood samples taken from students of Changzhou Foreign Languages School reportedly showed abnormal readings after the students moved to the school's new campus near the former site of several chemical plants. The abnormalities are suspected to be linked to soil contamination.

"Soil pollution in our country is very disturbing, which will jeopardize food safety and people's health," said Wang Mingwen, an NPC Standing Committee member.

Soil pollution is interrelated with air and water pollution, but China has rolled out many laws and standards pertinent to the latter, Wang added.

Heavy metal polluted soil could harm generations, another lawmaker Lyu Zushan said, stressing it would be very difficult and costly to tackle it.

Lawmakers suggested that a nationwide survey would help uncover exactly how much soil has been polluted, which will help expedite laws and standards, and increase government spending in this regard.
