Scientists Have Been Underestimating the Pace of Climate Change
Consistent underestimation is a form of bias—in the literal meaning of a systematic tendency to lean in one direction or another—which raises the question: what is causing this bias in scientific analyses of the climate system?

The question is significant for two reasons. First, climate skeptics and deniers have often accused scientists of exaggerating the threat of climate change, but the evidence shows that not only have they not exaggerated, they have underestimated. This is important for the interpretation of the scientific evidence, for the defense of the integrity of climate science, and for public comprehension of the urgency of the climate issue. Second, objectivity is an essential ideal in scientific work, so if we have evidence that findings are biased in any direction—towards alarmism or complacency—this should concern us. We should seek to identify the sources of that bias and correct them if we can.
 
And maybe historic Pacific Ocean temperatures were warmer than what was recorded.
When the data was digitized, the U.S. military had dropped everything after the decimal point. A measurement of 15.1 degrees and a measurement of 15.9 degrees were both recorded as simply 15 degrees. Repeated over and over, those missing tenths of a degree added up to artificially cold measurement.

Already warmer...

US President Donald Trump has cast doubt on a report by his own government warning of devastating effects from climate change.

Asked outside the White House about the findings that unchecked global warming would wreak havoc on the US economy, he said: "I don't believe it."
The report found that climate change will cost the US hundreds of billions of dollars annually and damage health.
The Trump administration has pursued a pro-fossil fuels agenda.

US states face water crisis as global heating increases strain on supplies
New Mexico tops the list, followed by California, Arizona, Colorado and Nebraska as problem could intensify with global heating
A handful of US states – including New Mexico and California – are facing significant strains on their water supplies that will only intensify with global heating, according to new rankings.

New Mexico tops the list and is the only state with “extremely high” pressures on its water availability. The state’s score is on par with the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East and Eritrea in Africa, the World Resources Institute (WRI) found.

California ranks second, followed by Arizona, Colorado and Nebraska. (...)

The Greenland ice sheet poured 197 billion tons of water into the North Atlantic in July alone
Ongoing extreme melt event continues, with more than half the ice sheet experiencing melting on July 31.
Studies have shown that ice melt periods like the one seen in 2012 typically occur about every 250 years, so the fact that another one is taking place only a few years later could be a sign of how climate change is upping the odds of such events.

According to DMI’s Mottram, the short-term, extreme melt event is a sign of climate change’s increasing influence on the Arctic.

“So yes it’s weather but it shows that in spite of internal variability the background signal of a warming climate is still “winning,” she said via a Twitter message. She said state-of-the-art climate computer models have been unable to simulate events like this, which hampers scientists’ ability to accurately predict Greenland ice melt and, therefore, future sea-level rise.

Luntz played a role in turning the environment into a partisan battlefield. During President George W. Bush’s first term, his infamous memo warned Republican party leaders that they were losing “the environmental communications battle,” an issue on which Bush was “most vulnerable.” He advised them to emphasize a lack of scientific certainty around climate change and drop “global warming” for the less scary-sounding “climate change.”

Luntz is now offering his messaging services to the cause of climate action. “I’m here before you to say that I was wrong in 2001,” Luntz told the Senate committee. “Just stop using something that I wrote 18 years ago, because it’s not accurate today.”

STATEMENT - 

WASHINGTON (July 25, 2019)— Congressmen Francis Rooney (R-FL) and Daniel W. Lipinski (D-IL) both introduced bipartisan bills today to address climate change. While the details differ between Congressman Rooney’s Stemming Warming and Augmenting Pay Act (SWAP Act) and Congressman Lipinski’s Raise Wages, Cut Carbon Act ( H.R. 3966), both bills would a meaningful price on carbon that increases over time. Both bills dedicate the bulk of the revenue to reducing payroll taxes for working Americans and their employers. Additional funds will provide needed assistance for R & D for clean energy, adaptation and assistance on energy costs to low-income households.

Below is a statement from Dr. Andrew Steer, President & CEO, World Resources Institute:

“We are encouraged by the bipartisan leadership shown by Congressmen Rooney and Lipinski to come forward with proposals to put a price on carbon. We should be taxing pollution, not taxing employment. This is one of the smartest and most effective steps we can take to reduce carbon emissions. As Americans experience record heatwaves and extreme weather events across the country, they want Congress to act. We need this kind of bipartisan leadership from both parties to bring forward solutions to this urgent crisis.

“These bills would reduce emissions significantly over the coming years by incorporating the costs of climate in everyday business transactions, with the revenue used to reduce payroll taxes paid by employers and employees alike. This type of price on carbon is a cornerstone of a policy portfolio needed to address climate change. We are encouraged that several of the co-sponsors have previously sponsored carbon-pricing bills that use revenue for different purposes, and they are recognizing the need to work together toward an ambitious package.

“With each passing day, the need for action becomes more urgent. This bill, coming on the heels of the announcement earlier this week by the leadership of the House Energy and Commerce Committee that the committee will be taking up climate legislation this year, can hopefully lay the groundwork for bolder action to come.”

The ‘Historical Jigsaw of Climate Deception’: Private Notes Show How Big Oil Spread Climate Science Denial
We’ve all heard the dodgy arguments: ‘the science is uncertain’, ‘climate change is natural, not down to humans’, ‘science has been hijacked by politics’… Now a new cache of documents sheds light on the origins of the disinformation.

In another verse of a now familiar refrain, a fossil fuel industry group in the 1990s publicly promoted arguments to undermine confidence in climate science while internally acknowledging their products were driving up temperatures. (...)

‘Climate apartheid’: UN expert says human rights may not survive
The world is increasingly at risk of “climate apartheid”, where the rich pay to escape heat and hunger caused by the escalating climate crisis while the rest of the world suffers, a report from a UN human rights expert has said.

Philip Alston, UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, said the impacts of global heating are likely to undermine not only basic rights to life, water, food, and housing for hundreds of millions of people, but also democracy and the rule of law. (...)
