Does the United States have a national carbon reduction target?

    Most developed countries have nonbinding reduction goals and many have more. In the wake or lead up to the Copenhagen summit, many developed countries reevaluated their targets or set ones. India set a reduction of 20-25% by 2010. The US said that it would make a cut of 15-20% but said in Copenhagen 17% (of 2005 levels) by 2010. China also announced that they would strive to reduce 45% (of 2005 levels) of the carbon emitted per yen. This is a much weaker commitment because they expect their economy to grow which allows for every little reduction.
