Brazilian President Michel Temer on Monday signed the Paris Agreement on global climate change, the final act in Brazil’s ratification of the sweeping accord. The agreement limits emissions of greenhouse gases, and was signed last year by representatives of 197 nations. So far, including Brazil, only 27 have ratified the agreement. Brazil’s Congress passed a resolution ratifying it in August, and at least 55 nations must ratify for the agreement to take effect.
