From Bloomberg

The global climate change agreement brokered in Paris in December by 195 nations will come into effect two years earlier than originally planned, the top United Nations climate diplomat predicted.

“You heard it here first: I think that we will have a Paris Agreement in effect by 2018,” Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said.

From The Guardian

At a meeting in Ottawa today, US EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and Canadian Environment and Climate Change Minister, Catherine McKenna, will plan how to enact the methane cuts that President Obama and Prime Minister Trudeau agreed to last month. The two countries have committed to reducing methane emissions from the oil and gas sector by 45 percent below 2012 levels by the year 2025 and McCarthy and McKenna will be looking for ways to strip out emissions along the full oil and gas production and supply chain – from mining sites to pipelines. The meeting comes two days after the EPA said tackling methane emissions is one of its top priorities for 2016.

From New York Times

Since the start of the 21st century, 21 countries have decoupled their economic growth from carbon emissions, according to new research by the World Resources Institute. In these countries, including the United States and many major European nations, GDP has risen while carbon pollution has declined over the past 15 years. Over that time period, decoupled countries lowered emissions by about 1 billion tons. China has yet to show a long-term decoupling trend, but research suggests that China's emissions peaked in 2014 and may now be decreasing.
