Airline Climate Deal to Offset Emissions Finally Poised for UN Approval

We do know that the deal would be a landmark one for several reasons: It is the first climate deal to tackle a single sector -- aviation -- and it closes a loophole in the broader Paris climate accord, which didn't target emissions from international flights.
