Just two hours ago, California Governor Jerry Brown raised the bar for the rest of the US, Mexico, and yet-uncommitted Canada on limiting climate change. Brown issued an executive order to reduce California GHGs by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. [caption id=

Now that Liechtenstein has joined the INDC club, let's take a look back at the important holdouts on the list--and their excuses. Only Canada has made some progress since we first published this list, and only on a province-by-province basis.
So who’s left on the villains list — the roster of top national polluters in the developed world who have not yet made their contributions?
