Why Cold Snaps Don't Disprove Climate Change

Why Cold Snaps Don't Disprove Climate Change

The analysis, compiled by government scientists and quietly issued Friday, warns that the USA could shoulder hundreds of billions of dollars in costs from unchecked climate change, as floodwaters swamp coastal communities and droughts devastate crops.

The climate assessment is required by law every few years.

One benefit the report may have, even despite a lack of media coverage, may be to weaken the administration's legal case to gut environmental standards, such as the freeze in federal fuel-economy rules, which is already being challenged in court.

The most obvious cry for help on global warming is coming right now from Northern California, where the fast-moving Camp Fire turned entire subdivisions in Paradise into grim rectangles of grey rubble in a matter of hours, as those surrounded by flames frantically called and texted their family members to say goodbye. "It's now CLIMATE CHANGE".

Scientists who worked on the report said it did not appear that administration officials had tried to alter or suppress its findings.

This sort of thinking - anecdotes = data - is disproven time and time again by the actual science.

To put it more plainly, the seasons will change and there will still be cold days during global warming. Or months! It means that, in the long seep of history, the planet is getting hotter and hotter. And of late, he has chosen to ignore the CIA's conclusion that Mohammed bin Salman personally ordered the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.

Russian Federation blocks Kerch Strait amid confrontation with Ukraine
In September, the Ukrainian navy accused Russian border guards of "acts of provocation" against its ships taking the same route. Ukraine accused a Russian coastguard vessel, named the Don, of ramming one of its tugboats in "openly aggressive actions".

He continued: 'And here's the other thing, you're going to have to China and Japan and all of Asia and all of these other countries - you know, it addresses our country'. In Trump's conception, the United States signs on to pledges to reduce its carbon footprint and the like and sticks to it while other competitor countries break the rules and force America to fight on the economic world stage with one hand tied behind its back. "If we're clean and everyone else is dirty, that's not so good'".

The report's conclusions fly in the face of the Trump administration's efforts to countermand President Obama's policies to reduce global warming, including limiting future increases in fuel economy, scrapping a program to clean up power plants-which would have helped make current and future electric vehicles cleaner-promoting electricity production from coal, and withdrawing the USA from the Paris Climate Accord.

The president also took the United States out of the Paris Climate Accords.

In October, Trump said during a visit to inspect hurricane damage in the southern state of Georgia that climate change "is going to go back and forth", rather than be permanent.

Reidmiller noted that since the last report came out four years ago, the nation has seen an increase in efforts by local governments to adapt to the changes wrought by climate change by raising highways above floodwaters and relocating important facilities away from the waterfront.

By allowing pundits who are funded by corporate interests to continually obfuscate just how bad the risk of climate change is, news networks like Fox News and CNN have mishandled the severity of the climate report, even when they are covering it.
