Climate change is real, Mr, President, and it's time to admit it and address it. "No alternative explanations" such as weather cycles or excuses about faulty data make sense, the report indicates. In the case of climate scientists, the reason for calling greater public attention to a compilation of climate-science studies was to prevent suppression or heavy editing from the Trump administration's horde of climate-change deniers. Scott Pruitt, who is in charge of the environmental protection agency, has said, "I think that measuring with precision human activity on the climate is something very challenging to do and there's tremendous disagreement about the degree of impact".

But the rise is expected to be much bigger towards the latter part of the century - by 5.0 degrees F (2.8 degrees C) with lower emissions and, by a whopping, 8.7 degrees F (4.8 degrees C) with higher emissions.
"This is simply an attempt by The New York Times just to undermine the success that we've had on this side of the aisle", said Dr. Gina Loudon of the claim that Pence's team is running a 2020 presidential "shadown campaign". It projects a near-term rise of temperature in the USA by 2.5 degrees F (1.4 degrees C). Atmospheric scientist Ryan Maue pointed out the study has not been delayed, and the government only recently began looking for scientists to review the draft report.
