Flaws[edit]

This article was so flawed that I hardly know where to begin. To begin with, the National Assessment on Climate Change is NOT a report issued in 2002. It is a scientific assessment process that was mandated by Congress in 1990 and that produced a report in 2000, not 2002.

What happened in 2002 was that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its own, separate report, titled "U.S. Climate Action Report 2002," which reached similar conclusions to the National Assessment. [1]

Confusing these two reports is akin to writing an article about the Mormon Church which claims that it was founded in Korea by Sun Myung Moon. A mistake this fundamental demonstrates that its author simply knows nothing at all about the topic on which he is writing. I find it rather mind-boggling, frankly, that Ed would call the NACC "fundamentally flawed," when clearly he has never read its report and doesn't even know what the NACC is.

I've also removed the section from this article in which Ed purports to list specific methodological flaws in the NACC report. None of the supporting citations that Ed offered to back up these methodological claims even mention the NACC.

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was moved by Tess.carter. --BDD (talk) 21:19, 13 August 2013 (UTC)

National Assessment on Climate ChangeNational Climate Assessment – The National Assessment on Climate Change was the title of the 2004 report issued by the USGCRP. The ongoing assessment process as well as the two additional reports (2009,2014) are now called simply the National Climate Assessment. All the information in the current article titled National Assessment on Climate Change refer to what is now known as the National Climate Assessment. 76.161.26.115 (talk) 14:43, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Criticism[edit]

There is no longer any section on criticism as neither of the two existing para I removed had references and/or relevant content to justify presence. There could be a section discussing the lacuna of NCA from a third party robust, objective source, preferably, peer-reviewed. For now most of the references come from the USGCRP itself and while the research and reporting process was very inclusive, the wiki article would benefit from inclusion of other references.

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on National Climate Assessment. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:
