Enforcement mechanisms for climate change targets are not being implemented, including in the Paris Agreement of December 2015. In 2011, all countries agreed that a climate agreement should have legal force. Legal force requires an enforcement mechanism, which the Paris Agreement lacks. Those countries that most opposed enforcement, unsurprisingly, also lag in their policy measures to achieve the Paris goals. Despite the political fanfare in Paris, the planet is likely headed for irreversible catastrophic climate change.
