Skip to comments.U.S. climate report says global warming impact already severe
Posted on 05/06/2014 7:33:56 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The governments newest national assessment of climate change, released early Tuesday, declares what a wide majority of scientists say is clear: Americans are already feeling the effects of global warming.
Heavy Northeast downpours unleashed by super storms such as Sandy, flooding from sea-level rise from Norfolk to Miami along the Atlantic Ocean, record-setting monster wildfires in several western states, a crop destroying heat wave in the Mid-West, and drought that has parched southern California, have all taken place in recent years.
The report affirms a number of things we have known, said Katharine Hayhoe, a Texas Tech University professor and lead co-author of the changing climate chapter of the assessment.
But there are new aspects, Hayhoe said. For a long time we have perceived climate change as an issue thats distant, affecting just polar bears or something that matters to our kids. This shows its not just in the future; it matters today. Many people are feeling the effects.
The decade starting in 2000 was the hottest on record, and 2012, the year Sandy followed an epic summer drought, was the hottest ever recorded in the nations history, the report says. U.S. temperature is 1.3 degrees to 1.9 degrees Fahrenheit warmer now than it was 1895, and most of that increase 80 percent, the assessment says occurred over the last 44 years.

Benghazi. Just saying.
The commie envirowackos are on a roll. Their destruction of America is at hand.
ABB... anything but Benghazi.
“Released early Tuesday”
I get the sense that this crapola is supposed to take our minds of matters of REAL IMPORTANCE!!!
Well then, we are already too late to do anything about it.
It's CRAP! How much did it cost us to have the gubmint lay this huge pile of fecal matter on us? (lie)
a wide majority of scientists say is clear: Americans are already feeling the effects of global warming.
Americans are already feeling the effects of global warming legislation.
They are nothing but junk-scientists.
Fine, go talk to India and China, come back and let us know how that went.
Well dayum...I am looking forward to this global warming and now they want to end it...I want my garden to grow for one thing.
There is no global warming. So they tried to simply change to “climate change”.I deny any global climate change in man made. NONE. Any executive order will be rescinded on inauguration day of the new Republican president along with hundreds of others. If this idiot raises utility costs of the poor and middle class over this contrived madness, WE WIN!!!
Well the reset button worked really well with Russia did it not! /S
What a pantload.
Had to get their Koch Brothers jab in there too! Always with the global warming just as summer is starting.
It’s just a setup for Obama’s fund raising trip to California ,LOL
And our government would never lie, and is here to help.
Life is so much worse now than in 1895 due to global warming.
Anyone preaching global warming (or other climate change nonsense, or tree-hugging nonsense, or mother earth garbage, etc., etc.) will be subject to immediate punches in the nose by any sane bystanders. Kids get two swings.
Harry Reid: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
Nancy Pelosi: The dead rising from the grave!
Barry Obama: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
With apologies to Ghost Busters (1984)
I would conclude the wild fires are due to BLM mismanagement.
I for one buy into this.
So, want to know, 1) what is the IPCC proposing to fix this and 2) what is the risk mitigation strategy if they overcompensate for the fix and we go into a global cool down.
hahahaha THE EVIDENCE is everywhere...Flowers blooming...GRASS GROWING....Haha-ha, you get a double like - first for the sardonic sarcasm with a bite as deep as its truth and then for the solemn reminder about the Benghazi betrayal.
were doomed I tell you...DOOMED
Aka obama may only be an empty girly man's suit dancing on his puppet masters' strings, but his office is where the buck stops. He left our guys high and dry to die as sure as he squeased the trigger himself. That literal bass-turd should be arrested, charged with high treason, tried, convicted, sentenced and then duly executed, all per the rule of law.
We have to act now before it’s too late again.
Which is it? Global Warming or Climate Change? And they forgot Global cooling. I’d say it should be Global Warming and Global Cooling = Climate Change whenever one or the other is happening.
Thank you for keeping track of the weather.
But we do already have thousands of more serious weathermen who do competent and accurate weather forecasts daily, using computer programs that actually work.
Get back to us in 500 years, if you want to discuss CLIMATE.
Sorry that reality trumps arrogance and incompetence.
I live at 14 feet above sea level. There is no flooding.
Presenting the stupid report in dibs, dribbles and discouraging-to-follow bureaucratese, guarantees no one will be able to read it, or even want to!
Very professional, guys.
Nobel Prize caliber work!

Americans are already feeling the effects of global warming.
China and India ask say what.
Yet we've been told that there has been no measurable warming in 17+ years. So, WHO'S LYING? My money's on the warmists...
Benghazi is warming up threatening ominous impact for the Obama administration.
