Climate change, global warming and climate crisis are all buzzwords sparking increased polarization in Washington, D.C., but scientists have been raising the alarm about these buzzwords for years. A newly released federal report shows that the effects of climate change are already being felt across the country, particularly by families living below the poverty line.

According to the Straight Arrow News Media Miss™ tool, this story is a Media Miss for the right. The Media Landscape indicates that while left-leaning and center-oriented outlets are covering this story, fewer right-leaning outlets are reporting on the topic.

As of August 2023, extreme weather events reportedly cost the U.S. more than $39 billion. According to the National Weather Service, that total ranks just behind 2021 for the highest total damage toll through seven months.

The peer-reviewed congressionally mandated report marks the fifth of its kind since 2,000. Researchers said climate change continues to encroach on Americans’ mental and physical health, along with their wallets, as insurance costs, food prices, and medical costs go up.

According to the report, scientists are more confident that climate change has made rainstorms, hurricanes, and wildfires stronger and more frequent and heat more deadly.

Looking into the future, scientists said, it is only going to get worse.
While warming pollution has slightly decreased in the U.S., it is not moving fast enough to hit the country’s carbon goals or the U.N. initiative to keep global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius or below.

The hope is that the report helps policymakers make fact-based decisions regarding climate change at the federal and local levels.

On Tuesday, Nov. 14, President Joe Biden announced $6 billion in funding for climate resilience projects in the U.S. and spoke on what this report means for the American people.

“This assessment shows us in clear scientific terms that climate change is impacting all regions, all sectors of the United States,” Biden said. “It warns that more action is still badly needed. We can’t be complacent.”
