National Climate Assessment will emphasize how the United States is already paying the multibillion-dollar price for man-made climate change, said study co-author Donald Wuebbles, a climate scientist at the University of Illinois.

"We're already seeing extreme weather and it's happening now," Wuebbles said Monday. "We're seeing more heat waves, particularly in the West and in the South."

This final report is a rewritten and shortened version of a draft that was released in January 2013, with more scientific references, reviews by experts and the public, and a thorough review by the National Academy of Sciences, said Wuebbles and report lead author Gary Yohe of Wesleyan University in Connecticut. There is even stronger evidence than in 2013, Yohe said.

The draft came out just as meteorologists calculated that 2012 was the hottest year on record for the United States, but last year was slightly cooler than the 20th century average. And in the time since the draft report was released, the United States has seen lots of extremes.

Nineteen different state records were set for individual months, such as the hottest January in California this year. Six were for heat: Arizona, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and California. Nine states set monthly records for being too wet: Iowa (twice, setting records for April and May last year), Georgia, Michigan, New Jersey, Florida, Colorado, Oregon and Washington. Two states set records for lack of rain: New Mexico and Utah. Two set records for coldest individual months: Maine and North Dakota.

And since the draft was released, there's been a dramatic new extreme that a good part of the country is worrying about: The drought in California, where a few rural places are in danger of running out of water.

Weather changes. Temperatures change.

How do you know all that? By science.

NOW.. science says this is the first man-made climate change. Go figure.

Um no. Science does not say that. Crackpot theorys generated by liberal kooks like yourself say that.

Where's your evidence? You have none.

I ask you for evidence and that's your answer. Typical liberal response I would expect from the party of liars.

Co-founder of the Weather Channel (one of the biggest gloBull warming networks on TV) even called you people out as agenda driven loons.

Science says global warming is real.

Science says human-induced climate change since the beginning of the industrial revolution in England.

Science says CO2 levels have never been as high as they are now for 800,000 years.

QED: Science says first man-made climate change!

P.S. Evidence is loud and clear!

See my previous post for evidence..

I agree. It also says it cools. It goes in cycles, and has done so for billions of years.

My state was buried under a one mile thick sheet of ice 10,000 years ago. Global warming? Yes. Human involvement? None whatsoever.

Except you are not the science.. What happens with 90 million tons of daily new man-made CO2 release into our atmosphere?

Nor are you. I'm just citing science. But I guess liberals like you only take the only parts of "science" you can use to benefit your theory, and disregard anything else that contradicts your wacky delusions.

Science says my state was buried under a sheet of ice 10,000 years ago and that it all melted away. The melting of trillions of tons of ice had absolutely nothing to do with human beings and everything to do with natures cycles. But that pesky little nugget of information is a fact you globull warmers would like to see swept under the rug.

WRONG unless you are the rug.

You lie a lot.

Science is science as a continuum.

Ha! Sweeping it under the rug again, eh? I don't blame you. If I was promoting some fantasy theory and there was clear evidence that flew in the face of it, I'd try and ignore it too.

Tell us what's fantasy theory and the evidence against it.

You know you are lying. Follow the thread.

Still choosing to ignore history, eh?

Typical liberal tactics. First, lie to promote your agenda. Then if you get called out, just ignore the real facts. If that still doesn't work, change the subject.

You people are like Bigfoot hunters. You promote crazy theories with no evidence, then demand that it's our obligation to prove you wrong. I've got news for you, putz. The burden of proof is in your lap, not ours.

Sorry if I offended Bigfoot hunters...
