"This report will weaken the Trump administration's legal case for undoing climate change regulations, and it strengthens the hands of those who go to court to fight them", said Michael Oppenheimer, a professor of geosciences and worldwide affairs at Princeton, as The New York Times quoted.
But the report issued Friday said that "warmer and drier conditions have contributed to an increase in large forest fires in the western United States and interior Alaska".
The National Climate Assessment, totaling more than 1,000 pages, warned of more powerful and longer weather disasters triggered at least, in part, by global warming.
"Future risks from climate change depend primarily on decisions made today", it says.
The long-awaited White House report was quietly issued Friday and outlines how climate change will affect the economy, communities, and infrastructure, as well as how the nation can reduce risks.
The findings pose a dire warning that is in contrast to the Trump administration's pro-fossil-fuels agenda.
The congressionally mandated report, written with the help of more than a dozen U.S. government agencies and departments, outlined the projected impact of global warming on every corner of American society in a dire warning that is at odds with the Trump administration's pro-fossil-fuels agenda.
Trump sought to prosecute Comey, Hillary
Trump reviewed and verified her email use with White House Counsel and explained the issue to congressional leaders". Trump sent hundreds of emails from this account and less than 100 of them involved government work.
California Judge Halts Trump's New Asylum Ban
At least 107 people have been detained for claiming asylum outside of official crossing points since the order came into effect. He reasoned that the "interpretive guide" of United Nations compacts on asylum lent extra force to congressional requirements.
Canadian consumers warned of outbreak of E. coli connected to romaine lettuce
That means romaine heads, hearts of romaine, baby romaine, chopped romaine, and any salad blend or mix that may contain romaine. If you do not know if the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine, do not eat it and throw it away.
"Without substantial and sustained global mitigation and regional adaptation efforts, climate change is expected to cause growing losses to American infrastructure and property and impede the rate of economic growth over this century". Ultimately, climate change will hit the pocketbooks of the USA as well and "impede the rate of growth over this century", the report notes. "That means we have to focus on us", he said.
The timing of report's publication also raised questions about White House interference.
TRT World's Lionel Donovan reports.
On Friday, scientists working for his administration gave Trump a stark answer: climate change is a menace that threatens the wellbeing of the United States.
The scientists who worked on the report implored the US not to ignore greenhouse gas emissions, which are expected to cause "substantial net damage" to the country's economy throughout the century. As a result, the region could potentially produce less than 75 percent of the corn it now produces, and lose more than 25 percent of its soybean yield.
"With continued growth in emissions at historic rates, annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century - more than the current gross domestic product (GDP) of many USA states", the report states. President Trump has been vocal in his skepticism about man-made climate change and the effects it is allegedly having both on temperatures and extreme weather events.
The studies clash with policy under Mr Trump, who has been rolling back Obama-era environmental and climate protections to maximise production of domestic fossil fuels, including crude oil, already the highest in the world, above Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation. Without greenhouse gases, natural forces - such as changes in energy from the sun - would be slightly cooling Earth. "The Bush, Obama and now Trump Administrations have all published reports showing the current and future impacts to the United States from climate change".
