The Global Agreement to Fight Climate Change

Unbelievable, really. In Paris last December, 189 countries put commitments on the table to take action on climate. Then, last month on Earth Day, 175 of those countries came to New York to sign the Paris Agreement, including U.S., China and India. The Earth Day signing ceremony exceeded our expectations. With the support of these large greenhouse gas emitters, the agreement may well have sufficient commitments to enter into force by the end of the year.
