Trump admin's National Climate Report disproves Trump admin's climate policy

As a U.S. government report mentioned, a climate change is upcoming at the end of the century and it could chastise the USA economy, resulting in an overdone flip-flop.

The U.S. Fourth National Climate Assessment released today warns of dire changes by 2050, many irreversible, according to the first comprehensive climate study prepared entirely under the Trump administration, with costs threatening to reach hundreds of billions of dollars annually by the middle of this century.

Global warming is now affecting the United States more than ever, and the risks of future disasters - from flooding along the coasts to crop failures in the Midwest - could pose a profound threat to Americans' well-being. The report notes the last few years have smashed us records for damaging weather, costing almost $400 billion since 2015.

"The full extent of climate change risks to interconnected systems, many of which span regional and national boundaries, is often greater than the sum of risks to individual sectors", the report said.

"And this warming trend can only be explained by human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere".

The White House released the report only a day after Americans celebrated Thanksgiving-on Black Friday-which is the busiest shopping day of the year. "People are going to die if we don't start addressing climate change ASAP", she wrote.

The report added that global warming would disproportionately hurt the poor, broadly undermine human health, damage infrastructure, limit the availability of water, alter coastlines, and boost costs in industries from farming, to fisheries and energy production.

That's the one thing in an extensive report released by the USA government.

Sea levels are continuing to rise, and extreme events like heavy rain and floods continue to increase worldwide, which will "cascade across economic sectors", Easterling said, warning of "substantial net damage to the United States economy".

No one's health is immune to climate change, the report concludes. President Trump tweeted Wednesday, "Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS - Whatever happened to Global Warming?"

He said he's not happy with GM and also told reporters that he has spoken with GM CEO Mary Barra.

The recent Northern California wildfires can be attributed to climate change, but there was less of a connection to those in Southern California, said co-author William Hohenstein of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

It's unlikely the timing of the report's release had much to do with the Katowice gathering.

"I've seen it, I've read some of it, and it's fine", he said.

"I had breakfast this morning too, and that doesn't mean we alleviated world hunger - and that's what that logic is like".

The report was created to inform policy-makers and makes no specific recommendations on how to remedy the problem.
