World leaders met November 30-December 11, 2015 in Paris to tackle the impacts of human activities on the world's climate that could lead to hard-to-reverse changes. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recommended that world leaders hold the warming of the earth's temperature to two degrees Celsius (3.6 F) compared with pre-industrial age levels.
The agreement signed in Paris commits 195 countries to reduce their carbon emissions by developing voluntary national emission-reduction plans by 2020 and having them reviewed regularly; the emission-reduction plans are not legally binding. The hope is that country plans will do more to reduce emissions as clean technology improves, so that after 2050 there will fewer carbon-emitting activities.
