The U.S. government formally committed itself Tuesday to reduce its greenhouse emissions between 26-28 percent by the year 2025 from the nation's 2005 levels, a goal set last November and which will be put on the table at the U.N. conference in Paris late this year.

That goal, set by President Barack Obama during his visit to China last November, is included in a document Washington sent Tuesday to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or UNFCCC, the White House senior adviser Brian Deese announced Tuesday.
