Will the climate be affected by the US pulling out of the Paris Accord?

Trump's decision to leave may have an impact on the climate, say some experts.

The non-profit group Climate Interactive projects average temperatures would warm an additional 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 if U.S. emissions continue as they are now and every other country fulfills their pledge under the deal.

Another scientific group, Climate Action Tracker, puts the impact of additional warming at 0.18 to 0.36 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Sierra Club has also put out numbers that say 60 percent of the emissions reduction goals the U.S. set under the Paris deal could be met by local initiatives – states and cities taking matters into their own hands -- but that analysis assumes that the U.S. completely replaces coal with clean energy.
