The Trump Administration released a sweeping federal climate report concluding that the Earth is warming at an alarming rate due to human activity.

The Earth is undergoing its warmest period “in the history of modern civilization,” fueled primarily by rising levels of carbon dioxide, according to the study Friday. The Congressionally mandated report, released by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, was initiated under President Barack Obama in 2015.
