Jerry Brown and Michael Bloomberg: Even without the Trump administration, the U.S. is upholding its commitment to the Paris climate agreement

America’s Pledge will report this collective progress to the Global Climate Action Summit that starts Wednesday in San Francisco. The effort, by our calculations, will put the country within striking distance of the 26% reduction in greenhouse gases, by 2025, that the United States promised to hit in Paris.
