Trump Administration is reportedly scheduled to convene a group of scientists to question the effects of climate change and challenge a large-scale federal report on this issue that was published last year.
According to The Washington Post, the "ad hoc" panel will include researchers who are openly antagonistic to the scientific consensus on climate change.
Last week, Post ran another story that claimed that President Donald Trump had planned use an executive order to set up a presidential committee to appeal a report, however, the "special group" will not be required to meet publicly or be involved in public records requests written by 13 federal agencies and more than 300 researchers. the gloomy picture rummaged: the United States has already warmed an average of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit during the last century and warmed at least 3 degrees to 2100 without much effort to reduce carbon emissions.

President Trump on climate change
"The purpose of this new committee of the National Security Council, apparently , is to question the results of recent reports on federal climatic science: who are already the most carefully reviewed DOCUMENT climate in Catherine Heihe (Katharine Hayhoe) climatologist at Texas Tech University and author of "national assessment of climate," wrote on Twitter. "Who is going to review federal climatic reports that have not yet had this chance? The answer is none. Everyone had a chance to review the reports before they were released by this administration – and if they were part of the federal agency, they had a lot of chances. " and was a modified version of the preliminary plan, revealed by William Hopper, senior director of the National Security Council, who wrongly claimed that atmospheric carbon dioxide actually contributed to the planet.
The proposal is reminiscent of another strategy called "Red Team-Blue Team" – an exercise that Scott Pryut first encountered. A former Environmental Protection Agency administrator wanted to create exercises to allow discussions between scientists who recognize climate change and its impact on the planet and those who do not. This plan was blocked by then Chief of Staff John Kelly.
Trump lowered the National Climate Assessment shortly after it was published last year, saying that he "did not see" when asked if climate change was caused by the release of carbon emissions. Since then, he has continued to attack science, often confusing weather and climate:
