It's not an agreement with the US, it's an agreement with the current administration that would be subject to the whims of future administrations. You need a 2/3 Senate vote for legally binding treaty. There is a laundry list of these agreement going back to Kyoto all of which have been backed out of or simply disregarded by new administrations.

These agreements won't really matter ...It will all come down to cost...

Coal power is way too expensive... It can't compete with renewables...

Many of the coal plants today operate at less than 1 month per year...
