The Truth Behind the Paris Agreement Climate Pledges

Almost 75 percent of 184 Paris Agreement pledges were judged insufficient to slow climate change
Only 28 European Union nations & 7 others will reduce emissions by at least 40 percent by 2030
China & India, top emitters, will reduce emissions intensity, but their emissions will increase
U.S., second top emitter, has reversed key national policies to combat climate change
