President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping formally joined the Paris climate accord on Saturday, handing over signed documents to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in Hangzhou, China and giving a major push toward bringing the emissions-cutting plan into force before the end of the year.
