Republicans criticise US-China climate deal

Questions remain about whether the US will ever make the carbon cuts needed after Republican triumph in elections.

    It was hailed as a major breakthrough by some, but the announcement by China and the US to cap carbon emissions has not been well received by Republicans in Washington.

    It is raising concern that they will try to stop the new measures being pushed through - especially after their big gains in the recent mid-term elections.
