I’ve been glad to see so much public discussion of #NCA4 over the last several days, with #ClimateFriday paralleling Black Friday. Since “Cyber Tuesday” is apparently now a thing, I’d like to declare today #CarbonTuesday. (THREAD 1 see part 2 next)
When the #NCA4 report was quietly released on Friday, it received MUCH more press than some of us expected. I’ve seen far less coverage about the closely related #SOCCR2 carbon budget report, also released on Friday and important!
I’ll highlight some #SOCCR2 findings from chapters I worked on and note some links between it and #NCA4. Would love to see colleagues from @NACP_Carbon join in to highlight interesting and important findings from your areas of research and expertise!

In its latest attempt to diminish science, the Trump admin released the Fourth National Climate Assessment on a holiday weekend when they thought no one was paying attention. But make no mistake - we noticed, and will not let them stand in the way of real climate action. #NCA4
The National Climate Assessment is too important to ignore. Every day until @HouseDemocrats take back the Majority, I will be sharing findings from #NCA4. Please like and RT to amplify the significance of #ClimateChange and how it affects us all. #ClimateCrisisCountdown
As the top Democrat on the @SciCmteDems Environment Subcommittee, I take my responsibility seriously to #DefendScience and protect our environment. To start the #ClimateCrisisCountdown, I am going to share a few of the most staggering facts from the #NCA4

The government tried to bury the Fourth National Climate Assessment (spoiler alert: things are bad) by releasing it over the long holiday weekend. Here it is — share it far and wide for #ClimateFriday.
People like POTUS won’t act on climate change because they think that they will suffer less if someone else suffers more.

The Trump gang is trying to bury this big national climate report by releasing it mid-afternoon on black Friday.

If you'd prefer to not let them get away with that crap, please retweet.

I'll thread good coverage below.
Here's the Guardian's coverage: "Heating the planet well beyond [2ºC] would create a 'totally different world... It would be indescribable, it would turn the world upside down in terms of its climate.'"

While not directly about the report, this piece is essential context

"In the past 30 years we’ve seen all 20 of the hottest years ever recorded... 'I’ve never been at a climate conference where people say "that happened slower than I thought it would."'"

JUST IN: The U.S. National Climate Assessment is now public.

This is the report that the Trump Administration doesn’t want you to see. Years in the making, released on the day after Thanksgiving. #ClimateFriday

Here are some of the main highlights:
This report is mandated by Congress and focused on the impacts of climate change in the U.S.

Basically: This is what our best scientists think will happen to us as a result of the actions our government is (not) taking to address the most important problem in human history.
300 experts in 13 federal agencies volunteered their time to make sure you have this information.

Please share it widely.
