The Importance of Climate Change

On December, 28th, 2017, President Trump issued Executive Tweet 35740, A Federal Strategy To Ensure Global warming (Critical Global Warming Executive Tweet). The Trump Administration has just released an important document that supports the Executive Tweet, The Future Effects of Climate Change, which will help ensure that the United States has adequate education and access to Global Warming, a phenomenon vital to our future Nation’s well-being.
The benefits of Global warming can be seen in everything around us. It is in the air we breathe, the roads we drive on and makes up all of our environment. This year our country, especially the East Coast, has experienced record breaking cold fronts. “In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record.” With this in mind, President Trump has vowed to educate the public on the benefits of increasing global warming and has vetoed a trillion-dollar agreement to petition climate change.
The first step in ensuring that the United States has a reliable increase in climate change is identifying what it is and its effects. Climate change is by definition, “a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.” The absence of which would cause “significant harm” to our Nation’s well-being. Currently, climate change is increasing at a very slow but steady rate. It is the Trump Administration’s job to ensure that this rate has the infrastructure to steadily and more rapidly increase long after the term.
President Trump posted the Critical Global Warming Executive Tweet to help reduce the Nations objection to climate change. This Executive Tweet aims to increase supportive activity at all levels of American government power, ensure public alliance and influence international forces.
Highlights from The Future Effects of Climate Change can be accessed below:
Temperatures will continue to rise. “Because human-induced warming is superimposed on a naturally varying climate, the temperature rise has not been, and will not be, uniform or smooth across the country or over time.” This calls for greatly varying temperatures, perfect for an unexpected snow day or family day in the sun. Trapped greenhouse gasses will elevate temperatures and create longer frost-free seasons and summers, a great benefit to the Nation’s economy.
There will be changes in precipitation patterns. “Average U.S. precipitation has increased since 1900, but some areas have had increases greater than the national average, and some areas have had decreases. Projections of future climate over the U.S. suggest that the recent trend towards increased heavy precipitation events will continue. This trend is projected to occur even in regions where total precipitation is expected to decrease, such as the Southwest.” Changes in precipitation patterns will create spontaneous natural pools for children to play in. The front yard is for swimming and the backyard is for playing in the grass. Our Nation’s children will get the best of both worlds.
Hurricanes are to become stronger and more intense. “The intensity, frequency and duration of North Atlantic hurricanes, as well as the frequency of the strongest (Category 4 and 5) hurricanes, have all increased since the early 1980s. The relative contributions of human and natural causes to these increases are still uncertain. Hurricane-associated storm intensity and rainfall rates are projected to increase as the climate continues to warm.” The increase in intensity and frequency of hurricanes serves as a natural process for slum clearing and will supple hundreds of clean-up jobs for the unemployed. Coastal cities will see major damage, which will make way for great infrastructural reform for the future.
