A key statistic in the Biden administration's climate change report is misleading, according to a new analysis.
The information claims that extreme weather events have resulted in at least $1 billion of damage, a figure experts dispute.

“There is no peer reviewed science that attributes any part of increasing disaster losses to changes in climate,” Roger Pielke, Jr., a professor at the University of Colorado who has extensively studied and written about the politicization of science, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“To see evidence of changes in climate, look at climate data, not economic data," he added.
My Administration has released the Fifth National Climate Assessment in our history.
It makes clear that climate change is impacting all regions of our nation – but that communities are taking more action than ever to reduce climate risks.
We have to keep that action going. pic.twitter.com/s14GbkWe1T

"My Administration has released the Fifth National Climate Assessment in our history," Biden said in a statement on Tuesday.
"It makes clear that climate change is impacting all regions of our nation – but that communities are taking more action than ever to reduce climate risks. We have to keep that action going," he continued.
A new report released by the Biden administration drives home a warning that scientists have been issuing for years: nowhere in the U.S. is safe from the effects of climate change. https://t.co/dUcHea6ut9

"Anyone who willfully denies the impact of climate change is condemning the American people to a very dangerous future," Pres. Biden said on Tuesday in remarks about the assessment, according to CBS News.
"The impacts we're seeing are only going to get worse, more frequent, more ferocious, and more costly," he noted Tuesday.
The science, however, is disputed among those knowledgeable regarding the topics in the report.
The climate science agenda has turned from research to politics with little room for discussion of the actual facts involved in the efforts.
The report conveniently fits the Biden administration's efforts and climate-focused donor base as well, adding to the politics involved in the report. More American households, however, are concerned with the Biden administration's economic policies and rampant inflation that have caused problems for families across the nation.
