  • Climate scientists are responding to President Donald Trump’s comments on the fourth National Climate Assessment — a publicly reviewed, congressionally mandated climate assessment put together by 13 government agencies and a team of 300 experts.
  • On Monday, Trump was asked by reporters about the assessment — specifically the economic impact — to which he replied, “I don’t believe it.” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also dismissed the report during Tuesday’s press briefing.
  • Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist, who helped author the report, responded to the Trump administration via Twitter.
  • “The warming oceans, melting ice sheets, rising sea level, worsening droughts, floods, superstorms, and wildfires—they don’t care what Trump thinks,” climate scientist Michael Mann told INSIDER. “And we are increasingly endangered — as a civilization — by this one man’s apathy, ignorance and malice.”
