    Five years ago in Paris, the world came together to sign a legally binding treaty on climate change. The Paris Agreement is a pledge to combat global warming and achieve a climate neutral world by mid-century. But what has been done, and how far are we from meeting its goals? This year’s meeting falls on Saturday and is co-hosted by the UK with the United Nations and France.
