Trump rejects climate report finding, says ‘I don’t believe it’

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.

A report released in October by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the leading global body evaluating climate change, said it could be stopped only if the world made major, and costly, changes.

"I often say weather is your mood, and climate is your personality", Shepherd tells Here & Now's Robin Young. "I've read some of it, and it is fine".

President Donald Trump speaks to members of the media before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Monday, Nov. 26, 2018.

The analysis is an annual assessment mandated by Congress, and was compiled by government scientists.

It concluded that climate change was man-made, and would have devastating effects on the world's economy unless addressed soon.

The value of this report is in confirming those predictions and providing details, like precise estimates of how much money we'll waste and how many lives will be lost as a outcome. In the meantime, the US is still attending global climate negotiations, but at next week's critical UN COP24 Summit in Poland US officials are set to focus on promoting "clean coal" to developing nations.

He still plans to try to play with it Sunday at Minnesota. "I need to coach better and we need to execute better". On defense, it's going to come down to the Packers secondary making stops, which they often have failed to do.

He also seemed to push the blame to other nations, saying the United States is 'the cleanest we've ever been'.

Trump also claimed the United States is "cleanest" it has ever been. It explains how the burning of coal, oil and natural gas is affecting different areas of the country and how this affects the US economy, including energy and agriculture. On the same program, GOP Senator Mike Lee said that climate change would need to be combatted not with legislation, but with "innovation", once again shifting the blame onto citizens rather than government.

'Over shorter timescales and smaller geographic regions, the influence of natural variability can be larger than the influence of human activity, ' the report says. It was written long before the deadly fires in California this month and before Hurricanes Florence and Michael struck the East Coast.

Climate change will diminish water supplies and agricultural output in Arizona and increase wildfires and health risks in the state, according to a wide-ranging new federal report. "If you look around the globe over the past week, it's still relatively warm, so we have to be careful not to be so USA -centric or even northeast USA -centric in describing what's happening globally". "Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS - Whatever happened to Global Warming?" he posted on Twitter. Notably, the scientists behind the report wrote that the effects of climate change "are already being felt in communities across the country".

The Fourth National Climate Assessment is yet another reminder that reality will catch up to the States, no matter how much the president tries to ignore and deny it.

"All hope is not lost, but we must act now", said Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), the expected new chairwoman of the House Space, Science and Technology Committee, in a statement.
