A long-awaited climate report that the Trump administration released on Black Friday reportedly in an attempt to bury the news, shows that climate change is already having a dramatic effect on life in the US, and that among the things it will damage is the American economy.
Increasing temperatures and more extreme weather patterns such as flooding and drought will have serious consequences on crop and livestock production, according to the Fourth National Climate Assessment that was released the day after Thanksgiving.
For Trump, fervently denying the existence of climate change is nothing new.
Previous research, including from US government scientists, has also concluded that climate change could have severe economic consequences, including damage to infrastructure, water supplies and agriculture.

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'.
What's more, climate scientists say the report demonstrates that their models have been accurate.
"What the US needs to do is participate in a long-term conversation about how you get to innovation, and it's going to need to be a conversation again that doesn't start with alarmism", Sasse said.

To put it more plainly, the seasons will change and there will still be cold days during global warming. Fewer Republicans (one third) said more should be done about climate change, and another third of Republicans thought that the United States is doing enough to address climate change.
The president said he read some of the report "and it's fine" but not the part about the devastating economic impact. Right now we're at the cleanest we've ever been, it's very important to me.
