Nearly 80 countries pledged this week to adopt stricter regulations to fight climate change, a unified signal of intent at the U.N.’s climate summit.

The U.N. Secretary General cited 77 countries that have pledged to go carbon-neutral by the middle of the century, though the countries in question produce between them less than half of the total global output of carbon dioxide.

The Secretary General also called for a halt on any new coal plants after next year.
