Thirteen federal agencies released a damning climate report that lays bare the dangers facing humanity, infers Lawrence Martin of The Globe and Mail. Still, Republicans and Donald Trump continue to downplay and ignore this rising threat. The president even tried to limit coverage the report would get by having it released on Thanksgiving weekend. Nonetheless, the planet is suffering from a very real and man-made climate crisis that risks great harm to humanity. Even in the face of growing proof, Republicans try to downplay worries as they continue to bolster the coal industry and neuter the EPA’s ability to protect the environment.
The U.S. Global Change Research Program’s report on climate change doesn’t reflect reality, holds Norman Rogers of The American Thinker. It paints an overly grim picture, which isn’t entirely based on facts, simply in order to turn more heads. Full of speculation, it is clear that these climate scientists have a vested interest in fanning fear over global warming. More people caring about this issue means more funding for them. Looking at the past, many predictions have been made about the climate that never became true. It is important to regard doomsday predictions with skepticism as they are not guaranteed to hold true.
