Denier-in-Chief Trump Should Read NOAA's Frightening New Climate Report

Denier-in-Chief Trump Should Read NOAA's Frightening New Climate Report

The report indicates that the global land surface temperatures in the year under reference were the highest in the last 137 years of record keeping.

The Times reported that some scientists are anxious the Trump administration could suppress or interfere with climate science reports like the National Climate Assessment, which is required by law to be issued next year. It also links human-propelled climate change with a decrease in the number of cool nights across the United States since the 1960s and an increase in the number of warm days since the 1980s. In its latest reporting of a so-called leaked climate assessment the New York Times relies on exaggerated statements and false allegations of cover-ups in order to push an agenda. It confirmed the heat resulted from the combined influence of long-term temperature rising and a strong El Nino - a climate cycle in the Pacific Ocean with a global impact on weather patterns.

A draft federal report on climate change that went public Monday contains little in the way of new science, and although its language is unequivocal, it merely confirms what has been obvious to so many scientists for so long: Human activity is increasing global temperatures, leading to potentially catastrophic climate change.

The false reports prompted U.S. House Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) to lash out at liberal media for their agenda-driven "fake news" on the draft climate assessment reported on by the New York Times.

Trump's advisers have plans to hold a public debate with researchers about global warming and climate change.

In many ways the report is a direct challenge to President Donald Trump's dismissal of concern about climate change, and the contention by EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry and others in his administrations that the jury is still out on climate change and humans' responsibility for it.

Green Car Reports respectfully reminds its readers that the scientific validity of climate change is not a topic for debate in our comments.

Another thing Urban's meta-analysis clearly shows, is that there is a large variation in studies assessing extinction risk under anthropogenic climate change, "depending on the specific assumptions and geographic and taxonomic focus of each study".

Walsh said, whatever fears scientists might have, he's seen no political interference in the report to date.

The odds of three years in a row setting heat records without man-made global warming is only 0.7 percent, compared to 30 to 50 percent with greenhouse gases according to a separate study published Thursday in the Geophysical Research Letters.

The only record 2016 placed second on is the category on retreating sea ice, but records still show that the Arctic land temperature was 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degree Celsius) higher than the 1981 to 2010 average.

- Sea levels are the highest they've ever been since recordkeeping began. Globally, temperatures were up nearly a full degree over the average measured from 1981 to 2010.

- Alpine glaciers have declined for 37 consecutive years.
