Trump Admin Once Again Denies Climate Crisis
September 26, 2019
In its latest denial of climate science, the Trump administration said that there is “not a climate crisis” in *an environmental analysis* of its sale of public lands to oil companies. The notice of this analysis came on the same day the United Nations released a report on the staggering effects climate change is already having on our planet.
YESTERDAY:Trump’s Interior Department published a notice that said there is “not a climate crisis” to defend its sellout of public lands to oil companies.
Bloomberg: “‘There is not a climate crisis,’ the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management asserted in its environmental analysis of the coming sale of drilling rights in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s Coastal Plain released earlier this month.”
ALSO YESTERDAY:The UN released a report on the staggering effects climate change is already having, and foreshadowing a more catastrophic future.
Washington Post: “Climate change is already having staggering effects on oceans and ice-filled regions that encompass 80 percent of the Earth, and future damage from rising seas and melting glaciers is now all but certain, according to a sobering new report from the United Nations. The warming climate is killing coral reefs, supercharging monster storms, and fueling deadly marine heat waves and record losses of sea ice. And Wednesday’s report on the world’s oceans, glaciers, polar regions and ice sheets finds that such effects foreshadow a more catastrophic future as long as greenhouse gas emissions remain unchecked.”
