Historic Paris climate deal on track to activate before year's end

Historic Paris climate deal on track to activate before year's end

This week, the global climate agreement designed last December has reached a crucial milestone after 31 countries ratified the accord at the United Nation’s General Assembly meeting on Wednesday. The new signers bring the total number of participating countries to 60. The Paris climate deal required participation from at least 55 countries representing 55 of global greenhouse gas emissions in order to activate the accord. Although the number of countries surpasses the requirement, only around 48 percent of emissions are represented. Even so, UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon has predicted the accord will go into full effect before the end of this year.
