U.S. President Donald Trump's pullout from the Paris Agreement will push up global temperatures nearly half a degree Celsius by 2100, according to a report released Wednesday at U.N. climate talks in Bonn. If all countries – including the U.S. – honor carbon-cutting pledges under the 196-nation treaty, the world would see 2.8 C of global warming above pre-industrial levels, the Climate Action Tracker research group had previously calculated.In 2015, the U.S. made a voluntary commitment to cut its emissions 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025 .In a separate ranking, the climate Change Performance Index, China also received fairly low marks due to its high emissions – 30 percent of the world's total – and growing energy use over the past five years, placing it 41st out of 57 countries assessed.
