Their goal: pave the way toward a world treaty, to be signed in 2015, aimed at slowing global emissions of heat-trapping fossil-fuel pollution enough to keep the planet’s temperature from rising by 2 degrees Celsius

There was never any chance of making the 2°C target even when it was set back in 2009. It was a political 'aspirational' statement, not a reachable goal.
