Climate-ABC: Parisian climate agreement

The Paris Convention was signed by 190 parties at the Paris Climate Conference (COP21) in 2015.

It is formally ratified by the EU since 2016. The agreement sets a long-term goal of limiting global warming to a temperature increase of 1.5°C. This goal is “without doubt extremely ambitious”, according to Greenpeace (2016), because too few effective climate protection measures are being implemented. The exit of the USA in November 2020 worsens the prospects of achieving this goal. However, this prospect is also clouded by the parties to the agreement. Germany, for example, threatens to miss its own climate targets and those of the Paris Accord.
