White House Quietly Releases a Comprehensive Climate Assessment Report

on November 28, 2018 at 2:20 pm under ,

“This report draws a direct connection between the warming atmosphere and the resulting changes that affect Americans’ lives, communities, and livelihoods, now and in the future. It documents vulnerabilities, risks, and impacts associated with natural climate variability and human-caused climate change across the United States and provides examples of response actions underway in many communities.

It concludes that the evidence of human-caused climate change is overwhelming and continues to strengthen, that the impacts of climate change are intensifying cross the country, and that climate-related threats to Americans’ physical, social, and economic well-being are rising. These impacts are projected to intensify – but how much they intensify will depend on actions taken to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the risks from climate change now and in the coming decades.”
