US Global Change Research Program Climate Science Special Report (Fifth Order Draft, 28 June 2017). This is a final draft report by scientists from 13 federal agencies. The report is part of the National Climate Assessment that is mandated by congress every four years. Some refer to this as the ‘leaked’ report, but this draft, and previous drafts, have been available online for many months.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (climate indicators) published a report, ‘Climate Change Indicators in the United States (Fourth Edition, 2016)’. The authors state that: “The Earth’s climate is changing. Temperatures are rising, snow and rainfall patterns are shifting, and more extreme climate events–like heavy rainstorms and record high temperatures–are already happening. Many of these observed changes are linked to the rising levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, caused by human activities.”
