パリ協定 the Paris climate accords


Yesterday, on his first day in office, President Joe Biden recommitted the United States to the Paris climate accords, rejoining the 194 states and the European Union that are signed on. The agreement, which was signed in the French capital city in 2016, seeks to limit global temperature rise to well below 2°C (3.6°F) — preferably to 1.5°C (2.7°F) — compared to pre-industrial levels. According to scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the average global temperature has increased by slightly more than 1°C (2°F) since 1880, and two-thirds of that warming has occurred since 1975.
