386. The Paris Agreement

Description

The Paris Agreement represents the most recent in a series of international accords aimed at reducing global warming. Its approach to the challenge is rather different from that of its predecessors in that is essentially ‘bottom-up’ and relies on the pledges volunteered by individual countries. Its potential effectiveness is weakened by: the lack of a mechanism for policing the implementation of those pledges; the failure to consider emissions from international transport and the unforeseen withdrawal of some of the major polluting countries.
