Climate change report is leaked over Trump censorship fear

The Times's front-page story said that scientists were anxious that the Climate Science Special Report - a multi-agency report that lays the blame for climate change on human activity - "would be suppressed" by the Trump administration, as cabinet members have expressed skepticism that humans are causing global warming. It details the current state of climate science and known physical effects of climate change.

The federal science draft is part of the upcoming National Climate Assessment and it states in no uncertain terms that failing to curb carbon pollution now will lead to catastrophic events in the near future.

"Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans", a draft of the report states.

Climate change skeptics at the Heartland Institute slammed the New York Times as "fake news" Wednesday after the newspaper reported this week that President Trump was looking to suppress a new federal report on global warming despite the report being publicly available.

The report's content is at odds with the Trump administration's position - and at times rejection - of the scientific community's belief that human activity causes climate change. The findings sharply contrast with statements by President Trump and some members of his Cabinet, who have sought to downplay the changing climate.

The Canadian government should look at trying to replicate the research in a new US report leaked this week that bluntly says climate change is real and is already having an impact on weather patterns in America, a national environmental think tank said Tuesday.

On Friday, the United States submitted its formal communication indicating it will withdraw from the Paris Climate deal as soon as possible. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, for example, said it was "another significant blow to the Obama administration's assault on domestic energy production and jobs".

Police Urge Extra Caution Around School Buses
It's a split shift and requires a lot of patience, all reasons school officials say this year is especially hard finding drivers. OH school buses travel more than one million miles each school year, transporting more than one million students daily.

Earlier this week, two studies concluded that global temperatures are likely to rise more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) by the end of the century - a symbolic threshold the Paris agreement explicitly seeks to avert.

The temperatures have been increasing incessantly in the U.S. since 1980s. Meteorologists have recorded increasingly warmer temperatures since the 1960s, and heat waves are now more common than streaks of stinging cold weather.

Trump himself has in the past decried global warming as a hoax.

Katharine Hayhoe, a political science professor at Texas Tech University and government scientist, told the newspaper that the report's conclusions are the "most comprehensive climate science reports" ever published.

The deal requires a three-year cooling off period before the USA can leave, and Trump suggested last month in Paris that he could be persuaded to change his mind before time runs out.

That half-degree might not sound like much, but a small difference in global temperatures can make a big difference. A copy of it was obtained by The New York Times. Scientists who worked on the report fear that the president will disregard it due to his history of opposition of climate change.
