What will happen if countries set their own carbon targets and don’t reach them?

    Depends.  Will this cause their people to rise up against them in protest?  If a country sets a carbon target for itself, it is up to that country to enforce it, so if a country doesn’t meet that target it can decide whether it wants to follow the rules it made for itself and punish itself, or if it wants to change the rules and not punish itself.  The downside of self-regulation is exactly that–politicians can set goals and take action on behalf of promises, but if they fail to follow through it’s only up to them to punish themselves.
