Let’s stop debating climate change and start combating it:

“Continuing to argue about what’s causing the planet to warm is the moral equivalent of arguing over whether wood burns while a fire is climbing up out of the basement of your house. It’s time Republicans stop arguing and got out the hoses instead.“

Trump administration releases report finding ‘no convincing alternative explanation’ for climate change

Trump administration releases report finding ‘no convincing alternative explanation’ for climate change:

“The White House did not seek to prevent the release of the government’s National Climate Assessment, which is mandated by law, despite the fact that its findings sharply contradict the administration’s policies. The report affirms that climate change is driven almost entirely by human action, warns of potential sea level rise as high as 8 feet by the year 2100, and enumerates myriad climate-related damages across the United States that are already occurring due to 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit of global warming since 1900.“

The National Climate Assessment has leaked. Many have already read the Assessment, however the White House can still decide to officially release it by August 18th – the day of the eclipse.

The report has no new findings, however it does contain many warm temperature marks we’re likely to pass in the near future.
