Trump says doesn't believe own government's climate warning

Al Gore blasts Trump for 'burying' climate report by releasing it on Black Friday

President Donald Trump continued his long legacy of climate-change denial on Monday by casting doubt on a report released by his own administration that warned of dire economic consequences associated with impending climate change. Outside of Christmas and the actual day of Thanksgiving, there's no better day to drop bad news that you don't want people to see.

The damning report, known as the National Climate Assessment, says that the consequences of climate change will leave no part of the USA untouched and that the warming climate will increase wildfires, crumble infrastructure, worsen air quality, destroy crops and lead to more frequent disease outbreaks.

He said the report addresses the United States, but that it should have also looked at China, Japan and all of Asia.

Last year, the President announced his intent to withdraw the U.S. from the 2015 Paris Deal to combat climate change, though the country can not do so until after the 2020 presidential election.

But even before the report was made public, Americans were extremely anxious about climate change.

The report mentions the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact, which was formed in 2010 by Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties and now includes 35 local governments trying to find ways to cope with climate change. Where the hell is GLOBAL WARMING???

'I've seen it, I've read some of it, and it's fine, ' he added.

1 person dead, 2 others hurt after Alabama mall shooting
Obviously, the mall was packed with people doing their early Black Friday shopping , and chaos erupted when the shots were fired. A shooting on Thanksgiving night at Alabama's largest enclosed mall has left the gunman dead and two people injured.

In addition, the report outlined the toll that declining air quality and disease transmission will have that is set to 'increasingly threaten the health and well-being of the American people'.

An earlier portion of the climate change report was released in November 2017 and found "no convincing alternative explanation" for the changing climate other than "human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases". On the same program, GOP Senator Mike Lee said that climate change would need to be combatted not with legislation, but with "innovation", once again shifting the blame onto citizens rather than government. It could be warming and it's going to start to cool at some point... Right now we're at the cleanest we've ever been.

Democrats said the report shows that addressing climate change must become a priority for next year's Congress. "It's a moral imperative", said Hillary Clinton in a statement Monday.

"But if we're clean, but every other place on earth is dirty, that's not so good".

Under President Trump, the United States pulled out of the Paris-Climate agreement, which put America on track to reducing greenhouse gasses by 26% while handing over billions of dollars to the United Nations. The report's release surprised even its authors and came shortly after Trump inaccurately tweeted that cold weather on a single day disproves the theory of climate change.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump called climate change a "hoax", although he has since said he does not believe that to be the case. This latest report - you know, the one that the Trump administration sought to bury because its conclusions are at odds with the President's personal beliefs - suggests they may not be reversible at all.
