Chinese President Xi Jinping is arriving at the White House for a state visit with President Obama today, where Xi is expected to commit to implementing a cap-and-trade system to limit China's greenhouse gas emissions in 2017. A cap-and-trade system is a market-driven strategy in which governments cap emission levels and then allow companies to buy and sell permits to pollute. We speak to Greenpeace International's Kumi Naidoo, who recently visited China.
