A White House official said Tuesday that it was still reviewing the draft document that was written by scientists, some of whom have said they feared Trump would seek to bury it or alter its contents before it is formally released.
"When you get down there to [the Environmental Protection Agency], you realize there is constant questioning of everything scientific of EPA that may have any implication down the line to have an impact on the regulated community", Thomas Burke, an EPA official under former President, . The scientists responsible for the draft are reportedly anxious that President Donald Trump will disregard their data and that his administration will bury their conclusions. In its latest reporting of a so-called leaked climate assessment, the New York Times relies on exaggerated statements and false allegations of cover-ups in order to push an agenda. The report indicates it is "extremely likely" that more than half of the average global temperature increase since 1951 is connected to human activity.
A scientific review prepared for a massive USA government report on climate change forcefully asserts that human activity is changing the global climate-and that the U.S.is already feeling the effects.
The information provided is heightened in importance not only because the effects of climate change are worsening every day, but because President Trump's position on the issue is at odds with that of almost every other county on the planet, most of which are part of the 2015 Paris climate agreement.
One draft portion of the report, known as the climate science special report, said even "stronger evidence" has emerged of "continuing, rapid, human-caused warming of the global atmosphere and ocean" since the last report in 2014.
There's no way to know for sure whether the administration would have squelched the final report, preliminary versions of which have been circulating for months. It also found an increase in extreme precipitation events in the Northeast.
"Human activities are now the dominant cause of the observed changes in climate", a later portion reads.
The reportnotes that "thousands of studies conducted by tens of thousands of scientists around the world have documented changes" related to climate, including temperature increases, melting glaciers, disappearing snow and sea ice, and rising sea levels.
"Climate change is real, and it has real impacts here in Las Cruces and worldwide", Miyagishima said. "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 YorkTimes".
Signs of relentless global climate change are all around us. The study will be included in the National Climate Assessment, which is mandated by Congress every four years.
Andy Rosenberg, director for the Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said the fear is not necessarily a new one.
And it states unequivocally that "greater emissions lead to significantly more warming". The scientists who worked on it clearly wanted to make sure their findings weren't bottled up or rewritten by the climate change deniers who populate Trump's administration.
"The global climate continues to change rapidly compared to the pace of the natural changes in climate that have occurred throughout Earth's history". Whether from top-down directives or program-level efforts to fly under the budgetary radar, federal agencies under President Trump have been noticeably less outspoken about climate change than they were under President Obama.
