Why Cold Snaps Don't Disprove Climate Change

On Monday, Trump told reporters that he had read "some" of the report.

Since becoming president in 2016, he has pulled the United States out of the worldwide Paris Agreement on attempting to bring down global temperatures, and torn up a raft of environmental protection laws, saying the USA economy needs the boost. "NASA has a good explanation of the difference between weather and climate on its website ― its website for children".

While the findings outlined by the 1656-page report are numerous, the document's predictions included significant economic losses and humanitarian costs. It's fun. There are pictures.

He said climate change has caused millions of trees to die off, which has fueled an increase in wildfires.

See his full takedown in the clip above. Irma, the fifth recorded hurricane with winds of 185 miles per hour or higher in the whole of the Atlantic Basin, was kept extremely strong partially due to the very warm waters it passed over on its journey to Florida, which exceeded 86 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the report. The National Climate Assessment report finds these warming temperatures will increase risks for outdoor jobs and activities.

'Right now we're the cleanest'.

Trump is a long time denier of human caused climate change.

The congressionally mandated report, written with the help of more than a dozen USA government agencies and departments, said the effects of climate change would undermine human health, damage infrastructure, limit water availability, alter coastlines and increase costs in various industries.

President Donald Trump dismissed USA government scientists' predictions that climate change will impose devastating economic costs.

The report, which is mandated by law every few years, is based on more than 1,000 previous research studies.

Responding to questions about the economic impacts of climate change, Trump said it doesn't think they will be devastating.

However, he rejected the central warning in the US National Climate Assessment, which said there will be hundreds of billions of dollars in losses by the end of the century due to climate change "without substantial and sustained global mitigation".

'With continued growth in emissions at historic rates, annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century - more than the current gross domestic product (GDP) of many US states, ' according to the report.

However, weather and climate are two different things, and "it's just flawed logic to identify a cold day or a week with disproving climate change", explains Marshall Shepherd, an atmospheric sciences professor at the University of Georgia, former president of the American Meteorological Society and host of the "Weather Geeks" podcast.

Previous research, including from USA government scientists, has also concluded that climate change could have severe economic consequences, including damage to infrastructure, water supplies and agriculture.
