Donald Trump on Dire Government Climate Report: 'I Don't Believe It'

President Donald Trump said Monday (Nov 26) he doesn't believe his own government's report last week warning of massive economic losses if carbon emissions continue to feed climate change unchecked.

We want to hear from you.

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

US President Donald Trump speaks to reporters. That's just weather. But climate is the overall, statistical, long term averages of those properties and changes. That's up from 2010, when Gallup first asked it and only a third of Americans thought global warming would impact them.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Trump said of the National Climate Assessment (NCA4), "I've seen it, I've read some of it, and it's fine". We need some fast!

The report goes on to detail the economic impact of climate change (hundreds of billions lost, with farms being hardest hit) and the physical toll it could take on our collective health, as factors like air quality, disease transmission by insects, food and water will "increasingly threaten the health and well-being of the American people".

"Earth's climate is now changing faster than any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities", states the report, which comes after a recent alarm by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that humanity's opportunity for meaningful action may soon slip away.

Following the publication of the Post's report, however, Sanchez back-pedaled on those remarks. "We will get work here", she said. His tweets were interpreted as possible confirmation of the alleged deal between the US and Obrador's administration.

Bunch claims Trump, who has overseen the greatest push toward energy independence through increased domestic oil and natural gas production, still "worships at the altar of 20th-century fossil fuels". The second volume of the fourth National Climate Assessment detailed the vast and potentially catastrophic effects of climate change on the environment and humanity should it continue unmitigated.

"Right now, we're at the cleanest we've ever been and it's very important to me", Trump said.

To put it more plainly, the seasons will change and there will still be cold days during global warming. "If we're clean and everyone else is dirty, that's not so good'". Trump has repeatedly dismissed the unanimous conclusion of the country's intelligence community that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help him and hurt Hillary Clinton.

Trump and several members of his cabinet have also repeatedly cast doubt on the science of climate change, arguing the causes and impacts are not yet settled.

The report was released the day after Thanksgiving - when many people were distracted - probably because it contradicts practically everything United States President Donald Trump has said and done on global warming. In mid-2017, the USA withdrew from the Paris climate change accord, the only country to have approved the historic accord then withdraw from it. Related: Could Oil Prices Fall To $40?

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.
