India –the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases — ratified the Paris climate agreement Sunday. With India’s signature, 62 countries have signed the pact.
It will come into force legally after it is ratified by at least 55 countries between them that produce at least 55 percent of global carbon emissions.
The European Union has said it will ratify the pact next week, which will push it past the threshold. The 28 nations overall emit more gasses than India but are behind No. 1 China and No. 2 United States
