UN officially notified of US intention to withdraw from Paris climate pact
It details the current state of climate science and known physical effects of climate change. Extreme cold waves, it says, are less common since the 1980s, while extreme heat waves are more common. Even if we all stopped emitting greenhouse gases right now, world temperatures would still rise by 0.30°C (0.50°F) by 2100.
"Scientists say they fear that the Trump administration could change or suppress the report", The Times reports.
At the time it was leaked, the draft report had been completed for months and was awaiting the administration's approval ahead of publication.
"It's not clear what the news is in this story", Robert Kopp, a climate scientist at Rutgers University who is listed on the report as among the lead authors, said on Twitter.
The U.S. State Department is advising its diplomats to sidestep questions from foreign governments about the Trump administration's stance on the Paris climate deal.
President Donald Trump has promised to bring back coal mining jobs, extend oil pipelines, and reduce government subsidies for clean energy initiatives and now U.S. scientists are fighting back. Meanwhile, the White House is investigating into the matter.
What the New York Times obtained, in other words, is an advance look at one of "the most comprehensive climate science reports" ever written.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The EPA is one of 13 agencies that must approve the report by August 18.
"The National Climate Assessment seems to be on autopilot because there's no political that has taken control of it", said Myron Ebell, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

He made a big show in May out of an announcement that he was exiting an global climate agreement that requires the U.S.to reduce its greenhouse gases by a minimum of 26 percent. It's true the United States was working toward zero emissions at a quicker rate than countries like China, but the USA also has much more infrastructure already in place to aid in achieving that goal.
In June, Trump announced that the US would withdraw from the agreement reached in Paris in 2015, in which almost 200 countries pledged to reduce emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases, saying the deal was bad for the country. Trump can not file paperwork to exit until November 2019. It's a report mandated by Congress every four years.
"Important to point out that this report was already accessible to anyone who cared to read it during public review & comment time", she tweeted.
They vowed steps to keep the worldwide rise in temperatures "well below" two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) from pre-industrial times and to "pursue efforts" to hold the increase under 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Already, the planet has warned by 1.1 degrees Celsius, or 2 degrees Fahrenheit. And the scientists fear the final version of the study won't be made public.
