Even as US President Donald Trump claims Climate change is a “hoax” aimed at hurting American economy, American scientists have revealed how climate change is true and its impact is visible across America. According to the New York Times, a draft report prepared by 13 federal agencies of the US have revealed that Americans are already feeling the impact of climate change. The report, however, is yet to be approved by Trump administration. US media fears that the Trump administration is likely to suppress the report. Meanwhile, the White House is investigating into the matter.

The draft report has, however, proven that Trump’s claims on climate change are not true. In an article published in June, Vox.com revealed Trump has tweeted his climate change skepticism at least on 115 occasions. Before we read about the details of the draft report, it would be apt to cite some of the tweets in which he mocked climate change claims.

In March 2012, Trump tweeted, “Global warming has been proven to be a canard repeatedly over and over again.” Again in November 2012, in a series of tweets, he said, “Let’s continue to destroy the competitiveness of our factories & manufacturing so we can fight mythical global warming. China is so happy!…Global warming is based on faulty science and manipulated data which is proven by the emails that were leaked ”

In November 2015, he tweeted, “It’s really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!” Recently, Trump derailed world’s fight against climate change by pulling the US out of the Paris Climate accord. However, US scientists’ findings recorded in the draft report nail Trump’s lies. According to the report, published by NYT:

  1. Recent decades have been the warmest in the last 1500 years. The evidence for climate change can be found at the top of the atmosphere to depths of oceans.
  2. Evidence suggests that human activities, especially emission of green house gases, are primarily responsible for climate change.
  3. Even if the humans stop emitting all green house gases today, the world would feel an additional 0.50 degree Fahrenheit (0.3 degrees Celsius) warming by the end of this century.
  4. Some extreme weather conditions can be attributed to Climate change.
  5. Worldwide, it is “extremely likely” that over half of the global mean temperature since 1951 can be linked to human activities. In the US, it said surface, air and ground temperatures are rising frighteningly in Alaska and the Arctic.
