Why the Paris Treaty is meaningless

The Paris Treaty promises to keep temperature rises below 2C. But to keep temperature rises below 2C, we have to reduce CO₂ emissions by about 6,000 Gt across the century. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) estimates that even if every country were to make every single carbon cut suggested in the Paris Treaty, to the fullest extent possible, CO2 emissions would only be cut by 56 Gt by 2030.This means that even in an implausibly optimistic, best-case scenario, the Paris Treaty leaves 99 per cent of the problem in place.
