When the president signed an executive order in 2005 calling for a global warming cap-and-trade program, it was greeted with derision from the fossil fuel industry.
In a speech in 2006, President Bush argued that he would be a “pioneer” and that “the rest of the world should follow our lead” because the U.S. would be “the only superpower.”
It was a line of reasoning that would have earned the president a spot on the Koch brothers’ shortlist for a future presidency, but his own administration, under President George W. Bush, saw the plan as an expensive waste of taxpayer money.
Instead, Bush and his administration decided to go all-in on climate change by pushing a series of ambitious programs aimed at curbing emissions.
They also set aside billions of dollars in taxpayer money to fund a massive expansion of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a federal agency that provides the national weather data that helps scientists forecast weather patterns.
Those efforts resulted in some of the most ambitious climate change initiatives ever.
The president also made a deal with the American Petroleum Institute, the powerful industry group, to cut emissions in exchange for tax breaks for the oil industry.
But the president’s push for action was never successful.
And the administration’s policies, including its cap- and-trade plan, fell short of what the scientific community had predicted would be the most dramatic effect of the planet’s changing climate.
As the U,S.
has become the world’s biggest polluter, the world is moving toward an even more damaging climate.
In the next few decades, a warming world will cause the loss of more than half the land surface of the earth, according to new research.
A new report by the Union of Concerned Scientists estimates that by 2100, the planet will lose a third of the land area it currently inhabits and could lose up to half of its ice caps.
The report, “Achieving a Warming World,” found that in the next two decades, global warming is projected to destroy nearly half the planet.
By 2100, there will be a 50 percent increase in sea level rise, the report states.
And in the future, more than one-third of the global land mass could be uninhabitable.
That’s because climate change is expected to make global cities more unstable, and the effects will be felt from coast to coast, the authors say.
In many areas, such as coastal cities and small towns, the effects of sea level rising are already being felt, including a surge of flooding, rising water levels, and increased power outages, according.
The United States is already facing the consequences of climate change, with rising seas and heatwaves, extreme weather, and loss of life linked to rising sea levels and higher temperatures.
According to a report released last year by the National Climate Assessment, by 2040 the United States will be the world leader in greenhouse gas emissions, and its share of the greenhouse gas burden is expected increase by another 6 percent.
The world’s most vulnerable countries, including Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, are the hardest hit, according the report.
Some of those countries, like Haiti and Pakistan, are already at risk from climate change.
The country’s infrastructure has deteriorated in recent years due to the impact of floods and droughts, and a lack of energy.
The island nation of Dominica is already in danger of becoming uninhabited.
“The island has lost 90 percent of its land mass, and is currently facing an increase in the likelihood of floods in the coming years,” the report says.
“With the potential for severe flooding, a catastrophic storm surge, and other extreme events, the islanders face an uncertain future.”
Dominica, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica are also seeing an increase of flooding due to climate change and a reduction in rainfall.
“We are not able to predict what will happen,” says Jose Mariano Guzmán, a climate change researcher at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.
“If you’re living in a village in the Caribbean, you’re going to be a lot more vulnerable.”
While climate change has affected the Caribbean region in particular, other countries in the region are also struggling with the effects.
In recent years, tropical cyclones, which are now more common, have become more frequent in the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, where there is more moisture in the atmosphere, increasing the risk of flooding.
In 2017, a tropical storm made landfall in Jamaica, with winds of up to 145 miles per hour, and in 2018, a Category 4 storm brought sustained winds of 140 miles per inch to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.
Tropical cyclone season in the United Kingdom is also forecast to increase.
The U.K. National Hurricane Centre, which monitors the impact hurricanes have on the country, has warned that the country is now “at risk of major impacts in the near future,” with
