Too Late To Prevent Climate Change

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new government report on climate change emphasizes the here-and-now impact of global warming.

President Barack Obama discussed the report Tuesday and said the problems brought to the United States by climate change don’t lie in the distant future. He cited increased flooding, greater vulnerability to drought and more severe wildfires.

The National Climate Assessment is the third edition of a congressionally mandated study. It concludes that the assorted harms of climate change are expected to become increasingly disruptive across the United States throughout this century and beyond.

The 840-page report says it’s not too late to prevent the worst of climate change.

The Obama administration is using the report to try to jump-start its efforts to curb heat-trapping gases blamed for global warming.
