    Climate Change Policies after the 2015 Paris Agreement
    in Europe en formation (L') , 2016/2 (n 380) ,  2016 ,  13-25
    The 2006 Stern Report reflects the urgency for combatting climate change. Flash forward, The 2015 Paris Agreement states that 55 countries representing 55% of the greenhouse gas emissions will take the initiative to address climate change. This accord may be the best change for reversing climate change. The 2015 Paris agreement applies critical measures such as differentiated, equitable, sustainable and legally constrained parameters to achieve such objectives. The hope is that the Paris Agreement is much more advanced than its predecessor, the Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol which was implemented in 2005 called on the global community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 5.25% based on 1990 levels. However, a measurable treaty should seek a 60% reduction in greenhouse emissions. This means the United States which accounts for approximately 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions must play an integral leadership role to validate this accord.
