The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report today ending the debate of human influence on our climate.
“It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. The evidence for this has grown, thanks to more and better observations, an improved understanding of the climate system response and improved climate models. Warming in the climate system is unequivocal and since 1950 many changes have been observed throughout the climate system that are unprecedented over decades to millennia. Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850.”
The IPCC Working Group also suggests that global surface temperature change will increase 1°-2°C (33.8°-35.6°F) by the end of the 21st century with more extreme weather conditions occurring more frequently and with greater effects.
