European Parliament backs Paris climate deal

The European Parliament has ratified the Paris Agreement, the global climate deal. The formal handover to the United Nations of a legal document is expected to happen by Friday. The EU’s ratification pushes the deal over the required threshold of nations representing at least 55 percent of global emissions to enter into force. The Paris Agreement, backed by nearly 200 countries and regions nearly one year ago, will help guide a radical shift of the world economy away from fossil fuels in an effort to limit heatwaves, floods, droughts and rising sea levels.
