(Worthy News) - The United Nations has issued a plea for nations to fast-track ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement as countries backtrack on their earlier support for the deal’s sweeping restrictions on greenhouse-gas emissions, the Washington Times reported.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged nations to attend a Sept. 21 “special event” at which they may deposit their “instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to the Paris Agreement on climate change.”

“I urge you to accelerate your country’s domestic process for ratification of the Agreement this year,” said Mr. Ban in a statement.

His push for rapid ratification comes amid the increasingly chilly reception for the agreement, adopted by 195 parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris, by nations concerned about the impact of the carbon restrictions. [ Source ]
