Trump admin releases report showing 2016 was hottest year ever


No, just like much of the rest of the mainstream media, the Times can't be bothered with telling the truth about global warming, or reporting both sides in the scientific debate over it.

An article on Tuesday about a sweeping federal climate change report referred incorrectly to the availability of the report.

Global sea level was also the highest on record, at 82 millimeters higher than the average in 1993, when records began to be recorded with the current method.

What did the Times' correction say? But he did seem to confirm a general Republican objective of cooking the books, writing, "We should treat this document for what it is, an unfinished draft that requires serious revision. The reporter just didn't know and the editors didn't know and once it was brought to our attention, we sorted it out" and ran a correction. It's an assessment of the latest and best climate science from around the world by 13 federal agencies, including NASA, the EPA and even the Department of Defense, along with a host of leading United States scientists.

NPR's Christopher Joyce reports for our Newscast unit, "The report notes that these changes are consistent with projections of human-caused climate change". They've become a central cog in the left's propaganda machine that pushes the idea that "humanity" must do something drastic to halt global warming. That Trump is not, and that government scientists feel the needs to join "deep state" actors in leaking their findings in fear of what the president might do against the nation's best interests, is damning.

The authors of the leaked study disagree with that stance, writing in the report: "Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are primarily responsible for recent observed climate change". "It compels action to prevent climate change". "Does Smith know better than the best USA scientists?"

"Climate change is one of the most pressing issues facing humanity and life on Earth", said the peer-reviewed publication, put together by almost 500 scientists around the globe and released each year by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the American Meteorological Society.

First confirmed case of WNV in 2017
The first confirmed human case in IL in 2017 was a man in his 60s from southwest suburban Will County, diagnosed in late June. In hoses that do get sick, symptoms include loss of coordination, loss of appetite, fever, stiffness and muscle weakness.

Alley said the changes in the climate that have already occurred are small compared with what will happen if emissions are not reduced sharply.

"The impact of El Nino is well known and is indeed taken into account", Trenberth wrote.

With a climate denier in the Oval Office, a "fossil fuel puppet" heading the Environmental Protection Agency, and Big Oil lobbyists filling the ranks of secretive deregulatory teams, a new report by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) confirmed that 2016 was the hottest-and in some ways most alarming-year on record. We ask that any comments by climate-change denialists be flagged for moderation.

"The statistics for heavy rains increasing are very robust, although the effect has been greatest in the Northeast", Trenberth added.

Meanwhile, drought was unusually widespread.

Greenhouse gas concentrations were up. "It should be alarming to everyone, because the impacts are going to get worse and worse if the politicians don't act on what the science is telling them". Smith is just one dude who won a few elections in Texas and has no formal scientific qualifications whatsoever, but who does take an bad lot of money from the oil and gas industry. "You just can not screw up in this environment because they'll use every small mistake to come after you and suggest that you have some nefarious motive in your reporting", he said.
