New federal report finds strong link between climate change, human activity

"We are going to have to deal with how we adapt to these changes ... and you're going to see a lot of demands from the communities that are affected".

Depending on future carbon emission levels, average annual temperatures in the US could increase by 2.8 to 4.8 degrees Celsius (5.0 to 8.6 degrees Fahrenheit) before the end of the century.

As one commentator noted, "The leak of the report is a clear middle finger to Trump, Pruitt and their plan to derail federal climate research and policy, and it ensures the public has an opportunity to review it before they get their big, grubby mitts all over it". Scientists provided an in-depth regional assessment of the most recent findings related to weather and climate, to reveal how climate change is affecting human welfare. It says there is relatively strong evidence that humans contributed to the European heatwave in 2003 and the record temperatures in Australia in 2013.

The draft report estimates that human impact is responsible for a Fahrenheit increase in global temperatures of 1.1 to 1.3 degrees from 1951 to 2010.

Dr. Katharine Hayhoe of Texas Tech, a leading climate scientist and one of the lead authors of the voluminous report, told The New York Times that the conclusions reached by scientists from 13 federal agencies are among "the most comprehensive climate science reports" published yet. "Orwell's Ministry of Truth has arrived".

A draft government report concluding climate change is already dramatically impacting the U.S. and humans are largely to blame rests in the hands of a White House that is openly skeptical about whether climate change is real.

The most recent federal report on climate change in Canada appears to be a Natural Resources Canada report from 2014. Along with the president, the Trump-appointed heads of numerous agencies have not supported the consensus reached by 97 percent of climate scientists, that human activity is contributing to harmful changes in the earth's environment and is warming the globe. The head of Trump's Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, has said there is "tremendous disagreement" on the impact humans have had on the climate.

The New York Times obtained a copy of the unpublished document, which is still waiting to be approved by the Trump administration before it can be shared.

"We're in some uncharted waters here", said an author of the report who asked not to be named. "And of course it is crucial for scientists to explain this clearly since the level of disinformation emanating from the White House is sky high".

The Trump administration's apparent crusade in ignoring climate change was most evident when the President pulled out of the Paris climate accord, tasked with stopping global emissions and rising temperatures.

A report now being developed by federal scientists warns of dire consequences from climate change, conflicting with public statements from officials in the Trump administration about the severity of rising greenhouse gas emissions.
