US will miss Paris climate pact target by a third: report

The United States will fall short

by a third on its commitment under the Paris climate treaty to reduce

greenhouse gas emissions, according to a report released Wednesday in San

Francisco.

A crescendo of efforts at the sub-national level by states, cities and

business to shrink the country's carbon footprint will not fully compensate

for President Donald Trump's decision to scrap his predecessor's climate

policies and promote the use of fossil fuels, it found.

Financed by former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, the Fulfilling

America's Pledge report kicks off the three-day Global Climate Action

Summit, a gathering of several thousand governors, mayors, business leaders

and climate activists from around the world.
