New York Times issues epic climate change "scoop" correction

Federal report sees human-caused changes to California's climate

Federal report sees human-caused changes to California's climate

"If the administration is backing out of the Paris agreement and there's not a strong backing of the idea of human caused climate change, than our report will most surely come into conflict with some of those stated ideas".

And while it was prepared largely under the Obama administration, it's not a political document. "Sadly, the Trump presidency has steered the USA toward this path". Average land surface temperatures in the Arctic are now 6.3 degrees warmer than in 1900, the report said. "That doesn't change the larger point that scientists were anxious that the government wouldn't approve the report or release it through normal channels".

"It's very clear that temperatures in California are increasing the risk of severe drought", said Noah Diffenbaugh, a climate scientist at Stanford University.

Of course decisions are also being made by the Trump administration to reverse efforts to reduce and eliminate carbon emissions, including moves to roll back President Barack Obama's biggest effort to cut carbon pollution and to pull the United States out of the global Paris Agreement to fight climate change.

The report was available on the Internet Archive non-profit website at the start of the year, however.

In other words, it has passed all the usual tests for scientific integrity.

Prudential Financial Inc. Sells 853026 Shares of Frontier Communications Corporation (FTR)
Buckingham Research initiated Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD) on Tuesday, December 15 with "Neutral" rating. UBS AG reiterated a "buy" rating on shares of Frontier Communications Corporation in a research report on Thursday, May 4th.

Yet the Times treats the contents of this report as if it were some kind of revealed truth from on high. Why? "The reporter just didn't know and the editors didn't know and once it was brought to our attention, we sorted it out" and ran a correction.

If that happens, she said, "the author team will then have to decide whether they can make [those changes] or not".

He told AP he anxious that the report could be late because the White House Office of Science Technology Policy, which helps coordinate the report, is understaffed and Trump has not appointed a science adviser yet.

It seems unlikely the climate change deniers Trump has installed at all levels of government will give the draft report their blessing.

Sea surface temperatures were also the highest on record and have increased by 1.62 degrees between 2000 and 2016.

Alley said the cost of reducing emissions now pales beside the cost of dealing with future climate change.

On Wednesday, Orr was sentenced to 35 years in prison, 14th circuit solicitor McDuffie Stone, said in a news release . Smith moves away from the auto and quietly tells the emergency team: 'Tell my family that I love them'.

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.

The hottest year on record before the report was 2015.

As for the accuracy of climate predictions, a review of 38 past computer models by Berkeley Earth climate scientist Zeke Hausfather found that on average they had accurately predicted the levels of warming later observed.

The report confirmed what NOAA, along with the World Meteorological Organization, announced in January about global temperatures.

"Dana Nuccitelli, the GuardianThe report-based on contributions from over 450 scientists from almost 60 countries-is the most detailed climate assessment that has emerged from a government agency since Donald Trump became president, a fact that raised questions about how it will be received by the White House".
