2016 confirmed as hottest year on record

Though climate change has rarely been documented in such detail, the report stopped short of linking the problem to what scientists agree is the leading cause - human activity, such as burning coal and gasoline. She responded, "I said, NO - why bother? And you know, in the early, in the 1920s, people talked about global cooling". The report, entitled "U.S".

The irony of the liberal media is they adore a story about "scientists" warning of planetary doom getting suppressed by Republicans and their fossil-fuel financiers, while they fervently believe in suppressing opposition to the doomsayers as dangerously unscientific. Hayhoe is a professor of political science at Texas Tech University.

On global warming being a hoax invented by the Chinese, the previous National Climate Assessment, NASA, EPA, the National Academy of Sciences and many other scientific organizations say otherwise.

It confirmed the heat resulted from the combined influence of long-term temperature rising and a strong El Nino - a climate cycle in the Pacific Ocean with a global impact on weather patterns. His stance sets the U.S.at odds with almost every other nation on Earth, all but two of which are part of the 2015 Paris agreement to try to cap global warming to no more than 2 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels by significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

This is a big reason why the Times has lost so much of its former journalistic prestige and public esteem: It seems to have become a party organ for the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, rather than a fearless truth-teller that lives by the creed: "All the news that's fit to print".

Climate scientists that worked on the report, however, were quick to point out it's been online since January.

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

"Scientists Fear Trump Will Dismiss Blunt Climate Report", read the headline of the Times story.

He added there is "abundant evidence" the recent increase in extreme weather, like Hurricane Sandy and widespread flooding in the southern United States, was the result of human-inducted climate change.

"The New York Times' front-page story on the National Climate Assessment represents fake news in collaboration with the deep state", said Fred Palmer, senior fellow at the conservative think tank. "While it was not widely publicized, the report was uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January; it was not first made public by The New York Times".

Pruitt said: "I would say that there are climate exaggerators".

"The world has warmed.by about 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit (0.9 degrees Celsius) over the last 150 years". That's especially true of the sophisticated, but fallible models and simulations by which scientists attempt to peer into the climate future.

The report also said a warming trend was continuing in the Arctic, and the Antarctic saw a new record low in the extent of sea ice coverage. That amount of warming in 135 years is unprecedented in the history of Earth, according to studies.

One of the surest signals that local governments are taking climate change seriously is that they're looking for new ways to pay for it.
