US Report Vol 2 on Climate Change Assessment just got released right during Thanksgiving celebration

The 1600 page report emphasizes the dire threat that human caused global warming poses to the US, its economy and its citizens. It is the fourth National Climate Assessment. It was mandated by Congress in the late 1980s and is prepared every four years by the nation’s top scientists from 13 agencies. It is meant as a reference for US President, Congress and the public. What makes this Volume 2 different from others is that it very much focuses on the US looking at the past and future likely impacts of Climate Change on US States, industries, from agriculture to services, therefore more specific, local and granular. US President who has concluded earlier that wildfires in California are due to mismanagement of forests are not yet commented on that report which establishes undeniable link between wildfire and climate change.
