What the U.S. Departure Means for the Paris Agreement


A coalition of states that vowed to fight global warming is on track to meet its share of U.S. targets set under the Paris Climate Agreement, even as President Donald Trump guts federal environmental efforts.

California, New York, and other members of the U.S. Climate Alliance have collectively cut greenhouse gases 15 percent since 2005, putting them within reach of the national goal of reducing emissions at least 26 percent by 2025, according to a report Wednesday. The rest of the nation has trimmed emissions by 10 percent, according to Rhodium Group research cited in the report.
