White House Report: Climate Change Is Harming The Economy

Climate change โ€œhas moved firmly into the present,โ€ as extreme weather has a negative impact on Americansโ€™ everyday lives and the U.S. economy, a new White House report says.

The congressionally mandated National Climate Assessment, produced by more than 300 experts overseen by a panel of 60 scientists, concludes that the nation has already suffered billions of dollars in damages from severe weather-related disruptions, which it says will continue to get worse.
