Paris Climate Agreement News
The European Parliament has voted to give its consent to the ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement. This vote represents an important milestone towards the formal ratification of the Agreement which will keep global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, and to 1.5 degrees by the end of the 21st century. It is hoped that swift ratification will allow the agreement to enter into force in November.
