Climate change will shrink US economy and kill thousands, government report warns


ONLINE FOR BLOCKBUSTER DEALS ON THIS BLACK FRIDAY, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT IS RELEASING A MAJOR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED REPORT ON CLIMATE CHANGE. IN FACT, IT’S BEING MADE PUBLIC RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK THIS HOUR. 2:00 P.M. EASTERN. THE CONGRESSIONALLY MANDATED REPORT DOCUMENTED THE HUMAN IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE COST TO THE ECONOMY. IT COULD CONTAIN DIRE THREATS THAT ARE AT ODDS WITH PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S OWN ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY AND OWN PRONOUNCEMENTS. LET’S GET TO RENEE MARSH LIVE IN WASHINGTON. YOU WERE ABLE TO TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT THIS REPORT AND BEING PUT OUT IN THE 2:00 P.M. HOUR OFFICIALLY. RIGHT NOW. WHAT NEW DETAILS ARE WE LEARNING?>>YOU’RE RIGHT. THIS REPORT RELEASED LITERALLY ABOUT A MINUTE AND 40 SECONDS AGO AND THE REPORT SQUARELY FOCUSES ON THE HUMAN IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE FOR PEOPLE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES USING REAL LIFE EXAMPLES. GOING TO TICK THROUGH THE QUICK HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FIRST READ HERE. PEOPLE ARE W.H.O. ARE ALREADY VULNERABLE INCLUDING LOW INCOME AND OTHER COMMUNITIES WILL FEEL THE IMPACTS THE MOST. THIS REPORT GOES ON TO TALK ABOUT THE HEALTH IMPACT, THE ECONOMIC COST AND THE IMPACT ON TRANSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE. AND IT’S VERY SPECIFIC. ACCORDING TO REGIONS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. AS IT RELATES TO THE ECONOMIC IMPACT, THE REPORT SAYS THAT THE EXPECTED — THE CLIMATE CHANGE IS EXPECTED TO CAUSE SUBSTANTIAL NET DAMAGE TO THE U.S. ECONOMY THROUGHOUT THIS CENTURY. ANNUAL LOSSES IN SOME ECONOMIC SECTORS ARE PROJECTED TO REACH HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS BY THE END OF THE CENTURY. SO QUITE PRICEY. THEY ALSO GO ON TO SAY THE FREQUENCY OF SEVERITY IN ALLERGIC ILLNESSES INCLUDING ASTHMA AND HAY FEVER ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE AS A RESULT OF CLIMATE CHANGE, MORE PEOPLE WILL BE EXPOSED TO THINGS LIKE TICKS CARRYING LYME DISEASE, MOSQUITOS THAT TRANSMIT VIRUSES LIKE ZIKA, WEST NILE VIRUS AND DENGUE FEVER AND BECOMING MORE PROMINENT. COMING TO AGRICULTURE AND THE FOOD SOURCES, IT SPECIFICALLY TALKS ABOUT THE MIDWEST AND IT SAYS INCREASES IN TEMPERATURES DURING THE GROWING SEASON IN THE MIDWEST ARE PROJECTED TO BE THE LARGEST CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO DECLINES IN PRODUCTIVITY OF U.S. AGRICULTURE. AND OBVIOUSLY THAT IMPACTS NOT JUST PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES BUT AS WE EXPORT IT IMPACTS PEOPLE WHO RELY ON THE EXPORT, AS WELL. I MEAN, THIS IS A LENGTHY REPORT, 29 CHAPTERS. HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF PAGES BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THIS REPORT IS REALLY ZEROING IN ON HOW DOES IT AFFECT THE PEOPLE? AND THIS ISSUE OF CLIMATE CHANGE IS OFTEN LOOKED AT AS SOMETHING THAT’S FAR OFF. SOMETHING WE’LL DEAL WITH IN THE DISTANT FUT
