US President Barack Obama is to unveil new rules for coal-burning power plants aimed at dramatically cutting emissions that contribute to global warming.

The proposals reportedly seek to cut carbon pollution from nearly 1,600 power plants by 30% by 2030.

China and India are among the nations that have made similar commitments to stem global warming.

But critics argue the new US rules will cause power plants to close and electricity prices to rise.
