(Washington, DC) -- A new White House report is painting a grim picture of global climate change. The national climate assessment says climate change is already prompting extreme weather in many parts of the country. White House science advisor John Holdren said climate change is not a distant threat -- it is happening. The report warns about an increase in extreme weather events, fires, floods and drought. Holdren argued that the report should be an alarm bell for urgent action.
