U.S. reports that global warming impact already here!

The White House released the U.S. National Climate Assessment report, by 300 scientists and experts. It reports, “The effects of human-induced climate change are being felt in every corner of the United States, scientists reported Tuesday, with water growing scarcer in dry regions, torrential rains increasing in wet regions, heat waves becoming more common and more severe, wildfires growing worse, and forests dying under assault from heat-loving insects.”

The U.S. report is consistent with the U.N.’s IPCC global report released last week that warns of dire shortages of energy and food, and escalating damage from storms along with increasing drought, all from human-induced global warming. The U.N. report predicts that we have only ten to fifteen years to bend the carbon emissions curve downward or the costs of global warming will be astronomical.

Fortunately last month the Supreme Court upheld the authority of the EPA to regulate smog from coal plants, which generate electricity and are the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions. The Federal government must take the lead in helping our country reduce greenhouse emissions! ALL businesses and consumers contribute to global warming daily when we drive our cars and use energy at work and home.

More coming on what we can do in our personal lives to help humans survive on the planet.
