In December 2015, United States and 187 other countries signed onto the 2015 agreement to curb carbon emissions worldwide, including the world’s top polluters – China, Russia and India. As its commitment, the Obama administration set the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 26% to 28% by 2025. Obama signed an executive order confirming the adoption of the agreement, but did not submit it to Congress for approval, leaving the door open for Trump to withdraw.
