More frequent and intense wildfires are one of the many consequences of climate change discussed in a recent report released by the U.S. government.

Last Friday the U.S. government released a report on climate change that laid out with alarming specificity the impacts of global warming on the country.

If you missed the news, that was the point. The Trump White House intentionally released the National Climate Assessment the day after Thanksgiving, when many are busy with family and shopping. Not only has the White House denied that climate change is caused by humans, the administration is also implementing policies that will increase greenhouse gas emissions.

New York Times energy and environmental policy reporter Coral Davenport joined Diane on the podcast to talk about the report, and the reaction from President Trump and his administration.
