The federal climate change report is waiting for approval of Donald Trump’s administration.

The report done every four years as a part of the United States National Climate Assessment has been signed by the National Academy of Sciences.

It said, “Americans are feeling the impacts of climate change at this moment,”.

Times said the report “directly contradicts claims by President Trump and members of his cabinet who say that the human contribution to climate change is uncertain and that the ability to predict the effects is limited.

It says the climate change will depend on future emissions of green house gases.


Despite President Trump’s withdrawal from Paris Agreement, US announced on Friday that they will take part in the international climate change negotiations as the withdrawal process will take at least until 2020.

The signatories of the agreement commit to reducing green house gas emission as it sets the target to keep global temperatures under 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Though these global efforts, the ice caps and glaciers are already melting, rising sea levels and earth sees frequent and violent weather events.
