US AND CHINA HAVE JOINED THE PARIS CLIMATE DEAL


26/11/2016





As is known, the Paris climate deal is the world' first comprehensive climate agreement. It will only come into force legally after it is signed by at least 55 countries, which produce 55% of global carbon emissions and The US and China are responsible for 40% of the world' carbon emissions. In G-20 summit, these two countries have both joined the Paris global climate agreement.
At a ceremony on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in China, US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered documents to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon entering their countries into the pact, according to Deutsche Welle.
Speaking in the presence of the Chinese president and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Obama said: "Just as I believe the Paris agreement will ultimately prove to be a turning point for our planet, I believe that history will judge today’s efforts as pivotal. This is not a fight that any one country, no matter how powerful, can take alone. Some day we may see this as the moment that we finally decided to save our planet."
With the Paris Climate Agreement, the countries agreed to a binding global compact for each country to decide how best to slash their own greenhouse emissions with the aim of keeping global temperature increases to "well below" 2 degrees Celsius.
