Speaking to reporters outside the White House, Trump said of the National Climate Assessment (NCA4), "I've seen it, I've read some of it, and it's fine".

Under President Trump, the United States pulled out of the Paris-Climate agreement, which put America on track to reducing greenhouse gasses by 26% while handing over billions of dollars to the United Nations. "NASA has a good explanation of the difference between weather and climate on its website ― its website for children".

"We're just suggesting, Mr. President, if you don't want to believe science or the 1,600-page report your team tried to slip past the American public on Friday, maybe just start with climatekids.nasa.gov". It's fun. There are pictures.

During the 2016 presidential election, Trump called climate change a "hoax", although he has since said he does not believe that to be the case. But more importantly, let me add to that.

Trump Says He Expects To Raise China Tariffs
Beijing was hoping Washington would call off the planned increase as a result of this week's meeting between Trump and Xi. In the interview , Trump indicated he will boost tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods to 25% from the current 10%.

It details how global warming from the burning of coal, oil and gas is hurting each region of the United States and how it impacts different sectors of the economy, including energy and agriculture.

"I wrote the climate scenarios chapter myself so I can confirm it considers ALL scenarios, from those where we go carbon negative before end of century to those where carbon emissions continue to rise", she wrote on Twitter.

Scientists released the fourth National Climate Assessment on Friday-a detailed report that outlines the current state of the planet and what its future looks like.

A report released last Friday by Donald Trump's administration said global warming is making US natural disasters worse.

Trump, administration officials and elected Republicans frequently say they can't tell how much of climate change is caused by humans and how much is natural.

The report is mandated by law.

The experts expect "substantial net damage to the USA economy throughout this century", finding that "with continued growth in emissions at historic rates, annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century - more than the current gross domestic product (GDP) of many U.S. states". In that time, the administration deleted federal webpages on climate science, proposed dramatic cuts to federal climate research and rolled back a number of regulations meant to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

For Trump, fervently denying the existence of climate change is nothing new. The report's authors conclude that the changing climate 'is transforming where and how we live and presents growing challenges to human health and quality of life, the economy, and the natural systems that support us.' And that, unless we change our practices and policies, there will be 'substantial damages to the U.S. economy, environment, and human health and well-being over the coming decades'.

Trump has argued that "raking" forests would mitigate wildfire risk, and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has backed up the president's assertions, claiming that poor forest management was the real risk - not climate change. Florida is predicted to suffer the country's biggest financial fallout, at $100.9 billion a year, related to climate change, according to a study published in Science Magazine.
