... 55 countries that contribute a total of at least 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions

So, in effect, 55% of the countries should pollute more to get an agreement working to pollute less. And, off course, every country that does not wait for the agreement to take effect and starts pollution reduction now is spoiling it for the rest.

Stupid rules like this are why only politicians believe the climate agreement actually helps to achieve something.
