White House Report: Climate Change Is Harming The Economy

Climate change β€œhas moved firmly into the present,” as extreme weather has a negative impact on Americans’ 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.
