The New York Times has received a draft copy of U.S. government's Climate Science Special Report (please contact us if you would like a copy).  The Report confirms what most of us already know (and makes the case that things are actually worse than expected).   The present dangerous warming of the earth is due to human activity.  The earth's temperature is on a highly likely trajectory that will surpass the 2 degrees centigrade limit that we needed to stay under to avoid catastrophic climate change.  The present administration has to approve the Report before it is officially released and is likely to suppress it.  It hardly matters if this report is suppressed by the present administration (it has already done immense damage to our climate progress). What matters is what we do. The real inconvenient truth is that we have our work cut out to try to get our friends and neighbors to engage like there is no tomorrow. Because the tomorrow we really don't want to see is right around the corner.
