    It’s Official – Feds Find Humans Are Causing Climate To Drastically Change The government is nearly done with a major report on climate change. Trump isn’t going to like it

    Chris Mooney, March 12, 2018 (Washington Post)

    “The country’s top independent scientific advisory body has largely approved a major climate report being prepared by scientists within the Trump administration — suggesting that another key government document could soon emerge that contradicts President Trump’s skepticism about climate change and humans’ role in driving it…The U.S. National Academies on Monday released a public peer review of a draft document called the U.S. National Climate Assessment, a legally required report that is being produced by the federal Global Change Research Program…The final version is expected later this year…[The process highlights how despite the changing political context] technical government studies of climate science continue…The report, 1,506 pages long in draft form, says U.S. temperatures will rise markedly in coming decades, accompanied by many other attendant effects. It predicts that Northeastern fisheries will be stressed by warmer ocean waters, that the Southeast will suffer from worsening water shortages, that worse extreme-weather events will tax water and other types of infrastructure, and far more…” click here for more

And companies long a part of the American fabric are also active…[like] General Motors and General Mills…Building up the brand to appeal to environmentally-aware consumers is one reason. But so too is economics and free markets: Indeed, wind costs have fallen by 67% since 2009 while utility-scale solar has dropped by 86% since that time…Santa Barbara-based Wiser Capital has said that 83% of the small-to-mid-size company managers that it surveyed will be investing in solar energy projects by 2020…[PriceWaterhouseCoopers found 72% of surveyed companies] are pursuing renewables…[O]ne thing will remain a constant no matter who occupies the White House — the free market, which is led by consumer demand and economic opportunities. And that will eventually trump the current obstacles…” click here for more
