"The report makes clear that even a half-degree increase in warming makes a huge difference - damaging our economy and our future", Keith Gaby, senior communications director at the Environmental Defense Fund, told IFLScience, adding: "We think it is possible to limit warming if we act boldly and quickly".

In a seemingly rare instance, Donald Trump was pressed about his views on climate change on Sunday in an interview with 60 Minutes' Lesley Stahl. "They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael".

Stahl, interrupted, "I'm going to change the subject again". I will say this. "That doesn't mean that we can't compete or we're not allowed to compete with other nations that aren't doing what we're doing", he said.

Britain has asked its climate change experts to advise on whether it should set a date to meet a net zero emissions target, the government said on Monday. She asked, "What about the scientists who say it's worse than ever?" the president replied, "You'd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda".

Last night, actor Alec Baldwin urged voters to "overthrow" the United States government led by Mr Trump at the ballot box.

However, he announced the U.S. would withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which commits another 187 other countries to keeping rising global temperatures "well below" 2C above pre-industrial levels and "endeavour to limit" them even more, to 1.5C. We still need a full and fair trial to prove our case. "This cadre has looted money from the federal treasury and deposited it directly into the bank accounts of their most ardent political supporters".
