'I don't believe it' - Trump dismisses government climate report

US President Donald Trump had in 2017 said he would withdraw the United States from the 2015 Paris climate deal to combat climate change

Without significant reductions in greenhouse emissions, the annual average global temperature could increase 9 degrees Fahrenheit (5 Celsius) or more by the end of this century, compared with preindustrial temperatures, the report says. However, it suggests that if the United States immediately reduced its fossil fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions, it could save thousands of lives and generate billions of dollars in benefits for the country.

The president was responding to a stunning report released by his administration Friday that said climate change will cost the US economy hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century, damaging everything from human health to infrastructure and agricultural production.

"Earth's climate is now changing faster than any point in the history of modern civilization, primarily as a result of human activities", states the report, which comes after a recent alarm by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that humanity's opportunity for meaningful action may soon slip away.

The White House has allegedly dismissed the report as a partisan hit job by Obama loyalists who relied on "extreme models" to draw conclusions. And the vast, vast majority of experts agree that climate change is real and caused by human activity-and that we're careening toward a risky point of no return that'll bring massive damages (if we're not already past that point).

Meghan Markle said to be causing a 'rift' in the royal family
So it makes total sense that once Meghan and Harry welcome their first child, Doria will be all over those grandma duties. William is a husband and father of three and his focus is primarily on them, and Harry will soon be a father.

The reaction of the Trump administration? However, several said the timing of its release, at 2 p.m. the day after Thanksgiving, appeared created to minimize its public impact.

The last few years have seen a record amount of damaging weather, which has costed the country almost $400 billion since 2015, according to the report.

The climate study, which assesses the impacts of global warming, was conducted in a nonpartisan fashion by 13 federal agencies and more than 300 leading climate scientists.

The climate assessment is required by law every few years.

Amazon and Microsoft make it easier for Indians to make a call
Following its initial announcement in September, it looks like Skype calling is almost ready to roll out to Amazon Echo devices . When you link Skype and Alexa , you'll also get 100 free minutes of calls per month for two months.

The report, written with the help of more than a dozen US government agencies and departments, said the effects of climate change would harm human health, damage infrastructure, limit water availability, and alter coastlines. It explains how the burning of coal, oil and natural gas is affecting different areas of the country and how this affects the USA economy, including energy and agriculture.

Societal efforts to respond to climate change have expanded in the last five years, but not at the scale needed to avoid substantial damages to the economy, environment, and human health over the coming decades.

The study details the detrimental effects climate change will have on economy and speculates hundreds of billions of dollars could be lost in industries all over the country.

"Right now, we're at the cleanest we've ever been and it's very important to me", Trump said. However, ACE has largely been attacked by coastal states as a weaker plan since it allows individual state the latitude to write their own rules on emissions from coal- fired plants.

ALERT: Avoid contaminated lettuce
But, epidemiologic evidence from the United States and Canada indicates that romaine lettuce is a likely source of the outbreak. According to a 2013 USA government report, leafy greens such as lettuce and spinach are the biggest source of food poisoning.

According to the bombshell report, how the US responds to greenhouse gas emissions will make a big difference.
