WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s elemental. President Donald Trump got his facts about earth, water, air and fire wrong as he and his aides spent a week attacking the White House climate report.

In interviews and off-the-cuff remarks, public statements and briefings, the president and the White House made a dozen discernible claims about the National Climate Assessment that the White House quietly issued on the day after Thanksgiving. Only one was supported by facts.
==============================================
Trump is a hypocrite when it comes to the impact of climate change. He applied for a permit to build a sea wall in one of his British Isles golf courses to check the invasion of sea water due to rising sea levels & used 'climate change' or 'global warming' as his justification. Climate change is good for Trump only when it impacts his wallot.

According to AGW standards, the consensus should win.

Climate change is employed by various people to promote their hidden agendas.

The most flagrantly abusive employment of this fear inducing sham is made by the charlatans who promote the dogma of CAGW.

We are cooler than we were 8000 years ago, about the same as we were 5000 years ago and cooler than any interglacial during the last half million years.

All of these temperature levels are posted with CO2 being the highest on record right now, today.

I thought that the link between higher CO2 and higher temperature was undeniable, irrefutable and absolute.

Why has nobody informed the real world of this link? Is the real world just that stupid that it cannot react appropriately to the lies of man?

I sure hope you realize that using the opinions of climate alarmists about a report written by climate alarmists using feeds from climate alarmists can't be used as a reliable critique about contrary opinions.
And, yes, the climate report does that very thing.

Climate experts call out new federal report for hiding the decline in hurricanes – ‘Were they thinking, no one would notice?’
Climate expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr.: The claim of economic damage from climate change is based on a 15 degree F temp increase that is double the "most extreme value reported elsewhere in the report." The "sole editor" of this claim in the report was an alumni of the Center for American Progress, which is also funded by Tom Styer."
Climate analyst Paul Homewood: ‘Cherry picks’ a few bad weather events…extrapolates using the most scary scenarios’

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels on the report: ‘Systematically flawed’ – Report ‘should be shelved’

Trump v. Trump?!: Dr. Ken Haapala: 'The global warming chorus immediately seized on the new USGCRP report claiming the Trump administration is contradicting President Trump’s claims about global warming. Amusingly, some of the chorus interviewed people who worked on the USGCRP, who were political appointees under the Obama Administration.'

Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore: "The science must be addressed head-on. If POTUS has his reasons for letting this Obama-era committee continue to peddle tripe I wish he would tell us what they are."
Dr. John Dunn: "Two years into the Trump administration it is sad to see this 400-page pile of crap."
Climate Depot's Morano: "It is a political report masquerading as science. The media is hyping a rehash of frightening climate change claims by Obama administration holdover activist government scientists. The new report is once again pre-determined science. The National Climate Assessment report reads like a press release from environmental pressure groups — because it is! Two key authors are longtime Union of Concerned Scientist activists, Donald Wuebbles and Katharine Hayhoe.
The new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide To Climate Change: MIT climate scientist Richard Lindzen wrote of the National Academy of Sciences: "Regardless of evidence the answer is predetermined. If the government wants carbon control, that is the answer that the Academies will provide."

Scientists rip new federal climate report as ‘tripe’ – ’embarrassing’ – ?systematically flawed? – Key claim based on study funded by Steyer & Bloomberg | Climate Depot
