Report--Climate Change much Worse, Report Released on Black Friday to try and Bury the Bad News

The Trump administration attempted to bury a report on Climate Change by releasing it the day after Thanksgiving, on Black Friday. You can read it by Clicking on, FOURTH NATIONAL CLIMATE ASSESSMENT Volume II: Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States

Yes, it is much worse than previously forecast and you can expect more wildfires and other weather calamities. Temperature which has already risen 1.8' in the last 100 years will rise another 2.3' by 2050 and looking at the graphs below by 4' to 8'+' by 2100. INSANE!!!

The real worry is that expectations of temperature and sea rises have been increasing for the worse with each successive year; will this trend continue? In other words, two years ago it was let's say estimated that it would take by 2100 not 2050 to have temperature's rise by 2.3'. ONE MUST WONDER IF IN A FEW YEARS WE WILL LOOK BACK AT THIS REPORT AS BEING A GROSS UNDERESTIMATE AS TO THE SCOPE OF THE IMPENDING DISASTER?

Here are some graphs from the report.
