Haley: No reason to think Trump administration won't accept climate change report

Nikki Haley US ambassador to the UN sent a letter to signal US plans to leave the Paris climate pact

Amid fears the Trump administration would bury the report, one federal scientist leaked a draft copy to The New York Times to ensure it saw the light of day.

The United States just announced Friday it would still take part in worldwide climate change negotiations in order to protect its interests, despite its planned withdrawal from the Paris accord on global warming.

A leaked draft of a major federal government climate change report has concluded that the USA will face dire consequences if carbon emissions are not dramatically reduced.

Guidance in the text advised diplomats to answer questions about any renegotiation of the agreement with, "At this time, there are no plans to seek to renegotiate or amend the text of the Paris Agreement, or begin negotiations toward a new agreement".

Some scientists were concerned that the administration could amend or suppress the report.

The report said human impact caused an increase in the global temperature of 0.6 degree to 0.7 degree Celsius between 1951 to 2010 and that heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions led the way as the primary contributor. The New York Times also reported that global warming skeptics were "equally anxious that the draft report, as well as the larger [National Climate Assessment], will be publicly released". According to NY magazine, 13 government agencies must sign off on the draft, which has already been approved by the National Academy of Sciences, by Sunday.

Trump has previously dismissed the scientific consensus that mankind is accelerating climate change.

The Trump administration has yet to sign off on it, raising concerns among some scientists that it might be suppressed, according to the Times.

The report also found that global temperatures are projected to rise significantly over the next century.

A small difference in global temperatures can make a big difference in the Oceanographer Fiammetta Straneo takes measurements to determine how fast the water is melting at the Helheim Glacier in Greenland in 2010. Scientists provided an in-depth regional assessment of the most recent findings related to weather and climate, to reveal how climate change is affecting human welfare. However, this field of "attribution science" is complex. One of the agencies that must approve it is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

"It's a fraught situation", said Michael Oppenheimer, a professor of geoscience and worldwide affairs at Princeton University who was not involved in the study.

There have been federal government reports in the past that looked at the impacts of climate change in Canada but she said they are not up to date.

President Donald Trump was briefed on the incident Saturday morning by his chief of staff, retired Marine Corps Gen. Australian Defence Minister Marise Payne said she had spoken to US Defence Secretary James Mattis to offer support.

"Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are primarily responsible for the observed climate changes in the industrial era, especially over the last six decades", the report says.

That's not to say there aren't uncertainties in climate science, as with any area of scientific study, said DeLucia.

It is abundantly clear that the Trump Administration does not believe in science.

As for hurricanes, "The projected increase in the intensity of hurricanes in the North Atlantic could increase the probability of extreme coastal flooding along the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf Coasts beyond what would be projected based exclusively on [relative sea level] rise".

"It is crucial that the United States remains a leader on climate and sustainable development". But the authors say there is now relatively strong evidence for a human contribution to events such as the heat waves in Europe in 2003 and in Australia in 2013.
