Check this out: Interactive Global Map countries’ climate targets

From a link on The Conversation, you can check out an interactive map of the world that shows the climate change goals for each country.  For example, if you move the cursor over the USA, a side bar pops up and tells you that the country’s Paris Target is to cut greenhouse gas from 26-28% of 2005 levels by the year 2025. China’s Paris Target is to reach zero growth in emissions no later than 2030 and to increase source of non-fossil fuels in primary energy to around 20%. (The details of China’s target are not clear, which is stated in the analysis). The data is from the Global Carbon Project. Many of the 190 countries meeting at this moment in Paris to finalize a global climate deal have made formal climate pledges. You can see these pledges as well on the interactive map.
