THE PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT EXPOSED FOR WHAT IT ISN'T

This piece revisits the infamous Paris climate accord and looks at what it didn't achieve. It was the best outcome that was achievable, but that is precisely the problem in that it was meant to be a starting point. Those nations that were set to gain the most from it, or be damaged the least, were only too happy to sign up. The rest were forced to sign as a mark of their homage to the planet. They mostly had little intention of increasing their contribution, or even getting up to it.
