The UN will have no say in individual govt. policies on the environment. Little change will occur (globally) until Canada and the USA enforce strict environmental policies, being the two largest per capita polluters in the world. If the USA and Canada are not willing to fight climate change the rest of the world will suffer due to North American extravagance, ignorance, and lack of political will.

Enforcing environmental regulations will disrupt the economy, and that’s really the main issue with governments.
