President Obama concludes his two-day trip to Paris for the Global Climate Change Summit.

FOX News' Jon Decker has more from the White House:

The President in his opening statement paid tribute to the people of Paris for carrying on with the Climate Change conference despite the recent terrorist attacks.

As for the Summit, the ultimate goal is to reach an accord for reducing man-made greenhouse gases that cause global warming. Such a deal, if it's reached with the 151 world leaders in Paris for the Summit, would not be a treaty and would not necessarily be binding on the U.S.

The President also touted the commitments from 73 American companies who are joining efforts to combat climate change.

The President said that he expected the next President, even if it's a Republican, would honor the commitments of any climate change agreement.
