WH Climate Video: 'Heat,' Wildfires,' 'Rain,' 'Allergies,' 'Drought' are Already Here!

A new video put out by the White House features the President Obama's science advisor suggesting mankind is already experiencing the beginning of the end due to its failure to take responsibility for climate change.

In the video, White House Science Advisor John P. Holdren touts the president's new climate report by blaming everything, from wildfires to allergies, on climate change:

"The contents confirm that climate change is not a distant threat. It is affecting the American people already. On the whole, summers are longer and hotter with longer periods of extended heat. Wildfires start earlier in the spring and continue later into the fall. Rain comes down in heavier downpours. People are experiencing changes in the length and severity of seasonal allergies. And, climate disruptions to water resources and agriculture have been increasing."

"Drought and increased warming in the southwest foster wildfires," Holdren added.

Holdren says climate scientists have "very high confidence" that man is to blame for the impending apocalypse:

"Scientists who study climate change confirm that these phenomena are consistent with the ongoing changes in global climate which we know with very high confidence are being caused mainly by the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases released by human activities.

"When Pres. Obama launched his climate action plan in June 2013, he made clear the information in this new national climate assessment would be used to inform efforts at the federal, state, and local level to increase preparedness for, and resilience against, the impacts of changes in climate that can no longer be avoided."
