This White House document is a textbook example of Soviet style propaganda
Lets look at this one claim at a time
U.S. average temperature has risen more than 2ºF over the past 50 years and is projected to rise more in the future; how much more depends primarily on the amount of heat-trapping gases emitted globally and how sensitive the climate is to those emissions.
They cherry-picked a start point at a local minimum. There has been no net change over the past century.
The reason why they expect temperatures to increase as CO2 increases, is because they are tampering with the data in proportion with atmospheric CO2. It is 100% fraudulent self-fulfilling prophesy.
The amount of rain falling in the heaviest downpours has increased approximately 20 percent on average in the past century, and this trend is very likely to continue
This is complete BS. Heavy precipitation events were more common in the 19th century, and haven’t changed over the past 100 years.
Many types of extreme weather events, such as heat waves and regional droughts, have become more frequent and intense during the past 40 to 50 years.
Once again, they cherry-picked a misleading start point. The EPA shows that heatwaves were much worse in the 1930s
Droughts were much worse in the 1930’s and 1950s, and have been trending towards less severe and frequent
The destructive energy of Atlantic hurricanes has increased in recent decades. The intensity of these storms is likely to increase in this century.
The US is currently experiencing the longest stretch on record without a major (category 3-5) hurricane strike.
Sea level has risen along most of the U.S. coast over the last 50 years, and will rise more in the future.
There has been little or no sea level rise on the West Coast.
There has been no change in sea level rise rates on the East Coast, and they are due to land subsidence, not climate
Cold-season storm tracks are shifting northward and the strongest storms are likely to become stronger and more frequent.
Exact opposite of the data. North American winter snow cover has increased to record levels, due to storm tracks and cold air pushing further south.
Arctic sea ice is declining rapidly and this is very likely to continue.
There has been no change in Arctic sea ice for a decade.
Essentially all of the White House climate claims are the inverse of the data. It is breathtaking.
