The Times' story now contains this correction: "While it was not widely publicized, the report was uploaded by the nonprofit Internet Archive in January; it was not first made public by The New York Times".
The average global temperature in 2016 across land and ocean surface areas was 0.94 degrees Celsius above the 20th century average of 13.9 degrees Celsius, according to the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Above all, the report strengthens the signal that has been coming out of climate research over the past few decades.
On Tuesday, the Times published "Scientists Fear Trump Will Dismiss Blunt Climate Report", which detailed key findings from the draft of a routine climate assessment conducted by several federal agencies every four years.
In reality, the "suppressed" report went through a public comment period for almost three months during which anyone on earth could read it.
It is abundantly clear that the Trump Administration does not believe in science. The temperature records were broken in 2014, which was said to be the hottest year since global temperature records began in 1880. Katharine Hayhoe, a university scientist who worked on the report and was quoted in the article, was asked by the BBC whether she had leaked it to the Times.
"I can't remember an administration where you had this many leaks this early in a presidency", said Mr.
The Daily Caller News Foundation pressed TheNYT on this, but reporter Lisa Friedman insisted the report was not publicly available.
Mattis: US, Allies Outmatch North Korea Militarily
Mattis' statements on Wednesday added to the increasingly heated rhetoric between North Korea and the United States. The country also, according to another intelligence assessment, is estimated to have at least 60 nuclear weapons.
NYC mayor: Tax the rich to fix the subway
Months of subway breakdowns and delays have contributed to the first decrease in ridership in more than 20 years. Subway power outages, long delays and even a derailed subway vehicle led New York Gov.
With Ryan Tannehill hurt, Dolphins reach out to Jay Cutler
As of Saturday, Cutler was reluctant about a possible return to football, although he hadn't made any decision with certainty. Gase was Cutler's offensive coordinator for much of the QB's time in Chicago, and the two apparently have a good relationship.
But the annual report released Thursday by NOAA and other agencies including the American Meteorological Society documented a series of other alarming statistics and records.
The heat was the result of long-term global warming and a strong El Niño weather phenomenon, the report said. This month, he formally notified the United Nations that the US will withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, reneging on the nation's commitment to reducing heat-trapping pollutants.
An worldwide, peer-reviewed publication released each summer, the State of the Climate is the authoritative annual summary of the global climate published as a supplement to the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
On global warming being a hoax invented by the Chinese, the previous National Climate Assessment, NASA, EPA, the National Academy of Sciences and many other scientific organizations say otherwise.
Those heat waves have not yet been linked directly to human-influenced climate change, but they might yet be.
Richard Alley, another Penn State geosciences professor and expert on the Earth's cryosphere, noted Smith was correct the report was a draft finished some time ago, so it could not include "the absolutely most recent data".
This graph illustrates two important things: (1) the pattern of exponential decline of biodiversity for a linear increase in global temperatures (which means that for the preservation of Earth's biodiversity a business as usual emissions scenario is much worse than ambitious global climate policy) - and (2) that there is large variation among individual published biodiversity projections (illustrating high complexity/uncertainty).
