Roy Moore, Donald Trump, Saudi Arabia: Your Weekend Briefing

We checked in on hurricane recovery. In Houston, pictured above in mid-October, much of the devastation was a direct result of a quintessentially American defiance of nature’s boundaries. The latest installment in our immersive Changing Climate, Changing Cities series focuses on what rebuilding in that coastal city says about diverging attitudes toward, among other things, race, liberty and science. In Puerto Rico, figures show that 472 more people died in September compared with the same month last year, a sharp contrast with the official storm death toll of 55. And in parts of the U.S […]

U.S. Report Says Humans Cause Climate Change, Contradicting Top Trump Officials

The White House put out a statement Friday that seemed to undercut the high level of confidence of the report’s findings.“The climate has changed and is always changing,” Raj Shah, a White House spokesman, said in the statement. “As the Climate Science Special Report states, the magnitude of future climate change depends significantly on ‘remaining uncertainty in the sensitivity of Earth’s climate’” to greenhouse gas emissions, he added.Despite the scientific consensus presented in the report, the Environmental Protection Agency has scrubbed references to climate change from its website and barred its scientists from presenting scientific reports on the subject.The E.P.A. administrator, Scott Pruitt, has said carbon dioxide is not a primary contributor to warming. Rick Perry, the energy secretary, asserted Wednesday that “the science is out” on whether humans cause climate change.DocumentRead the Full Climate Science Special Report“It is extremely likely that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century,” the report states.OPEN DocumentTheir agencies referred questions to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which oversaw the research.The report has provoked consternation in scientific circles for months. Though the study has been in the works since 2015, several scientists said the election of Mr […]

Trump Administration Moves to Open Arctic Refuge to Drilling Studies

Environmental activists assert that even advanced three-dimensional seismic testing can do lasting damage to the tundra and contribute to thawing of the permafrost. Moreover, they say, climate change has already led to significant changes in the area, like polar bears that are now more active on the coastal plain than ever before, because the sea ice they rely on is receding.PhotoA coastal plain of the refuge.Credit U.S. Fish and Wildlife ServiceJamie Rappaport Clark, president of Defenders of Wildlife, called the agency’s move “reckless and irresponsible.” Allowing seismic testing, she said, lays the groundwork for opening the Arctic refuge. “It’s like the camel’s nose under the tent,” she said.According to the memo, dated Aug. 11, James W. Kurth, the acting director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, told the regional director of the agency’s Alaska office that officials had been told to “update the regulations concerning geological and geophysical exploration of the coastal plain, Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Alaska.” The attached proposal eliminates date restrictions that the agency had imposed for submitting an exploration plan and moves to allow them “in any given year.”GraphicHow Americans Think About Climate Change, in Six MapsAmericans overwhelmingly believe that global warming is happening, and that carbon emissions should be scaled back. But fewer are sure that it will harm them personally.OPEN GraphicThe memo does not provide a legal justification for allowing new exploration. In 2013, the Obama administration rejected an effort by Alaska to perform a seismic survey over 2,300 square miles of plain in the area, arguing that the agency’s authority to review and approve such plans expired in 1987 […]

Harrowing Storms May Move Climate Debate, if Not G.O.P. Leaders

“We can get a fair amount of bipartisanship if we talk about severe weather and resiliency,” Mr. Schatz said. “For some people, it’s just about the phrase ‘climate change’ being too politically loaded.”Most movement among Republicans has come from moderates and lawmakers from areas vulnerable to flooding, where seeming oblivious to extreme weather could be politically risky. There have been no notable cracks in Republican opposition to climate policy among party leaders, or even within the powerful Texas congressional delegation — a group battered by Hurricane Harvey but fiercely protective of the state’s oil economy.For the most part, senior Republicans have avoided directly discussing climate in the aftermath of Harvey and Hurricane Irma, which pounded the Southeast this week. They have focused chiefly on scrambling to get government aid to stricken states. The Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Scott Pruitt, said debating climate now would be “very, very insensitive.”PhotoFlooding in a suburb of Beaumont, Tex., in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.Credit Christopher Lee for The New York TimesBut in Florida, where Irma left more than a dozen dead and millions without electricity, a handful of Republicans have been more outspoken.

Climate Change Is Literally Making You Lose Sleep

Climate change caused by human emissions of greenhouse gases is wreaking havoc on our planet — from heat waves to heavy rainstorms to higher sea levels, the consequences of global warming are far-reaching. The mere thought of the irreversible damage being done to our planet is enough to leave us tossing and turning at night. But as it turns out, there’s a scientific reason that climate change is literally making us lose sleep.Many of us have had the experience of struggling to fall and stay asleep during a heat wave — especially if we don’t have air conditioning. A newly published paper in the journal Science Advances predicts that as global temperatures continue to rise an increasing number of people will lose sleep.This side effect of climate change will disproportionately affect certain demographics — specifically, people who can’t afford to run their air conditioning all night, and the elderly, who have a harder time regulating their body temperature.According to the researchers’ calculations, an extra six nights of sleeplessness can be expected every month for every 100 Americans by 2050. That number will surge to 14 nights per month by 2099 if global emissions continue at their current level. Sleep deprivation is miserable, but it’s more than a mere inconvenience.Sleep deprivation is miserable, but it’s more than a mere inconvenience […]
