Federal report says warming is disrupting Americans' lives

Posted Tuesday, May 6th 2014 @ 3pm

(AP) - A new federal scientific report says global warming is rapidly turning America the beautiful into America the stormy, sneezy and dangerous. And those shining seas? Rising and costly.

The new National Climate Assessment, released Tuesday, concludes that the harms of global warming will become more and more disruptive across the nation throughout this century and beyond. The report emphasizes how warming and its all-too wild weather is changing daily lives, even using the phrase “climate disruption” as another way of saying global warming.

But the 840-page report says it's not too late to prevent the worst of climate change. The white house is highlighting the science and effects of warming as it tries to jump start often-stalled efforts to curb heat-trapping gases.
