For the first time the both greatest emitters of greenhouse-gases signed the official ratification documents of the Paris world climate summit.

USA and China are emitting 39% of the global human made greenhouse-gases.

The fact that these both nations never signed the ratification of the Kyoto-Protocol but the Paris climate deal is an very important milestone on the way of fighting global warming.
