New Government Report on Climate Change

The report, prepared by actual scientists, finds that climate change is already having a profound effect on the US.
Many wonder if the Trump Administration will suppress the report.
Quote:
The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.

The draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies, which has not yet been made public, concludes that Americans are feeling the effects of climate change right now. It directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet who say that the human contribution to climate change is uncertain, and that the ability to predict the effects is limited.

This report will be ignored because it's the GOP way. In fact, like everything else, some members of the GOP are extolling potentially, historically negative events like climate change. In July of this year, "Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), an outspoken skeptic of mainstream climate science, wrote in the Heritage Foundation's Daily Signal that the “benefits of a changing climate are often ignored and under-researched.”

“Our climate is too complex and the consequences of misguided policies too harsh to discount the positive effects of carbon enrichment,” he said.


Smith said higher carbon dioxide concentrations aid photosynthesis, increasing plant growth, while warmer temperatures would increase growing seasons.
Melting ice in the Arctic opens up shipping channels, Smith said, and fossil fuels in general have fueled massive economic growth."

So the message is: NO WORRIES, Goober.

We don't know the global temperature to a fraction was 1,500 years ago or even 150 years.

Taking ocean temps into account we only have good global temperature info for the 21st century.

Common man, this is why al gores doom and gloom global warming meme has been abandond to the more pliable "climate change". This way anything can fit into their ever changing models.

Btw. How are old Al's predictions going. Wasn't the polar icecaps supposed to be lakes and SF was to be under water?


Oh yeah...climate change. Unfortunately the constant earth temps over the last quadzillionguzpillion years have suddenly been disrupted. We better send billions of dollars to a UN bureaucracy because reasons and stuff.


Sheeeeeiiit.

With climate scientists worried that the Trump administration might suppress a major report, the N.Y. Times gets a leak and posts the full text.

Maybe because of tRump's paranoia about allowing the American people to know the truth and the apparently real threat of incarcerating them for doing so.
