The European Union will reportedly refuse to sign trade deals with countries that do not ratify the Paris climate change agreement and take steps to combat global warming, under a new Brussels policy.   With the United States the sole holdout, the stance could permanently derail TTIP negotiations already halted under the Trump administration.
