Scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are saying with 95% certainty that humans are the “dominant cause” of global warming since the 1950′s. The Earth’s surface temperature has been growing warmer each of the last three decades and each is warmer than it has ever been since 1850. 

“Observations of changes in the climate system are based on multiple lines of independent evidence. Our assessment of the science finds that the atmosphere and ocean have warmed, the amount of snow and ice has diminished, the global mean sea level has risen and the concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased,” said Qin Dahe, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I.

Thomas Stocker, the other Co-Chair of Working Group I said: “Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system. Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.”

“As a result of our past, present and expected future emissions of CO2, we are committed to climate change, and effects will persist for many centuries even if emissions of CO2 stop,” concluded Thomas Stocker.

Do you think there is anything we can do to stop, fix or avoid a warming Earth?
