9 takeaways from the national climate report

Federal report sees human-caused changes to California's climate

But the report says scientists are now able to draw some direct connections with varying degrees of certainty between climate change and such events as heat waves in Europe in 2003 and Australia in 2013. After setting a record that year, global temperatures shot to a new record by a wide margin in 2015, the report says, followed by another record last year.

Hayhoe says the report brings together that latest science in a way that "presents us with a stark and unyielding picture of the tremendous impacts humans are having on this planet and, moreover, the importance of the decisions that we are making today to reduce and eventually eliminate our carbon emissions". "There are no alternative explanations, and no natural cycles are found in the observational record that can explain the observed changes in climate".

The world is in a risky place, and it's unclear how much of climate change even concerted global action can stop.

Sea surface temperatures were also the warmest on record, the report confirmed.

On Tuesday, the Times published "Scientists Fear Trump Will Dismiss Blunt Climate Report", which detailed key findings from the draft of a routine climate assessment conducted by several federal agencies every four years.

"These comments reflect the utterances of someone who either doesn't have the faintest understanding of the science, or has total contempt for scientific truth", Michael Mann, climatologist, geophysicist and director of Penn State's Earth System Science Center, told Gizmodo.

The Leftmedia has one objective: To vilify the Trump administration whenever the opportunity arises. "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", noted the lead of the article, which was written by Lisa Friedman. The day after the Times article, the paper ran another piece claiming the report will force Trump to "choose between science and his base".

Earlier this week the Guardian Newspaper reported that it had received evidence that an agency within the US Department of Agriculture had been instructed to replace the expression "climate change" with "weather extremes. when talking to the public or other agencies". The agency said the aim of the report was purely "diagnostic".

Kopp tweeted: "It's not clear what the news is in this story; posted draft is public review draft from Dec, and WH review hasn't yet missed Aug 18 deadline".

"'Anyone who's read the 2014 report of the IPCC knows that, while the - while modest, 0.85 degrees Celsius, warming of the earth" has occurred since 1880. "To report it in any other way is just fake news".

"The White House will withhold comment on any draft report before its scheduled release date".

Last year was the hottest year for the planet since records began, according to a new NOAA climate report.

And "greenhouse gasses" gets the tongue-twister, "build soil organic matter, increase nutrient use efficiency".

The draft report says it is "extremely likely" more than half of the global mean temperature increase since 1951 is attributable to human activity.

Researchers attribute the record heat to long-term global warming and El Nino.
