   The ignorant die hard skeptics are whining about a Fox report.    Although if one has an IQ and comprehended the whine - it was about the idea that a first draft was released a year ago and the paper posted yesterday was the 3rd. edition.

 

    They were running around in circles as a few years they tried to destroy Global Warming reports by attacking emails and taking them out of context...eventually burned for their stupidity.

 

    Expect those seriously deluded folks to try that again - oh no, changes between draft #1 and draft #3.

Government Report Finds Drastic Impact of Climate Change on U.S.

 

 

WASHINGTON — The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.

 

 


Nice but you did not go into the part where the uncertainties were whether two heat waves were the result of MMCC or other factors. Not whether MMCC is accepted fact. The only times you saw "uncertain" were from the political appointees in the Trump administration.  Science is certainly not uncertain on the subject.  Conservatives keep trying to find something to hang their Harry Potter approach to science.  

 

Worldwide, the draft report finds it “extremely likely” that more than half of the global mean temperature increase since 1951 can be linked to human influence.

In the United States, the report concludes with “very high” confidence that the number and severity of cool nights have decreased since the 1960s, while the frequency and severity of warm days have increased. Extreme cold waves, it says, are less common since the 1980s, while extreme heat waves are more common.

   Today, there are TWO breaking stories:

 

    1.   Scientists who worked on Climate Change / Global Warming impact for the FED released the 3rd Draft of their research today.      That leaves GOP with a mess to try and explain.    The information is only on NYT website- and donald fans refuse to read, so why should I bother to link to it.      They have the research at hand.

 

    Denial in motion: 

 

    2.    Tillerson cable to US Diplomats re: Paris Plan  is being distributed by Reuters.   

 

U.S. diplomats should sidestep questions from foreign governments on what it would take for the Trump administration to re-engage in the global Paris climate agreement, according to a diplomatic cable seen by Reuters.

 

The cable, sent by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to embassies on Friday, also said diplomats should make clear the United States wants to help other countries use fossil fuels.

 

      In the wake of President Donald Trump's announcement in June that the United States would withdraw from the accord, the cable tells diplomats to expect foreign government representatives to ask questions like: "Does the United States have a climate change policy?" and "Is the administration advocating the use of fossil fuels over renewable energy?"

 

     If asked, for example, "What is the process for consideration of re-engagement in the Paris Agreement?," the answer should be vague: "We are considering a number of factors. I do not have any information to share on the nature or timing of the process," the cable advises.

 

     Yea statemanship, Donald style - RUN AND HIDE, if cornered:  VAGUENESS 

     


No surprise - it's EXACTLY how Der Trumper handled his military obligations during Vietnam, it worked then so he figures it will work again. As far as his base is concerned, he's right. Too bad we allowed that 26% of the voting public to make him our first POSPOTUS. Thanks again Hillary Haters.

That uncertainty is concerning individual weather events. A single drought, heavy rain, etc. The gist of the article is something other than uncertainty.

 

From the article:
“Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans,”...The authors note that thousands of studies, conducted by tens of thousands of scientists, have documented climate changes on land and in the air. “Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse (heat-trapping) gases, are primarily responsible for recent observed climate change,” 

 

The study examines every corner of the United States and finds that all of it was touched by climate change. The average annual temperature in the United States will continue to rise, the authors write, making recent record-setting years “relatively common” in the near future.

 

“It is very likely that the accelerated rate of Arctic warming will have a significant consequence for the United States due to accelerating land and sea ice melting that is driving changes in the ocean including sea level rise threatening our coastal communities,” the report says.

 

Human activity, the report goes on to say, is a primary culprit.
