An international team of scientists has found with near certainty that human activity is the cause of most of the temperature increases of recent decades, and warns that sea levels could rise by more than three feet by the end of the century if emissions continue at a runaway pace.
The scientists, whose findings are reported in a summary of the next big United Nations climate report, largely dismiss a recent slowdown in the pace of warming, which is often cited by climate change contrarians, as probably related to short-term factors. The report emphasizes that the basic facts giving rise to global alarm about future climate change are more established than ever, and it reiterates that the consequences of runaway emissions are likely to be profound.
“It is extremely likely that human influence on climate caused more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010,” the draft report says. “There is high confidence that this has warmed the ocean, melted snow and ice, raised global mean sea level, and changed some climate extremes in the second half of the 20th century.”
That's about it. Look who believes what. The uneducated and illiterate right wingers choose to belive the 1% hireling media mouthpiece propaganda ministers at Fox. Those who are intelligent and educated know how to acquire information from those equipped to study the issue with education, scientific data, and tools..
Ever ask yourself, "who turned global warming into a political issue, and why?" What group of self-interest promoting plutocrats benefit most by belittling the vast and overwhelming majority of scientists that keep presenting the evidence that global warming is a life threatening issue involving the survival of this planet? Ooops! Sorry. It would take an intellect and motivation to seek out the truth. I forgot I was answering a tea bag lemming.
as the trumps know, data is irrelevant just perception. Ask the no doc loners how they stabilized ameruca and made it rich. Tampon praise ultimately gives way to spite as that will be all the brats have left.
The stable solution required critical examination of data but all we have seen is an attempt to talk value into things which requires uniting against critics. All praise the humans.
Wow...the right-wing lunatics didnt like THAT post now did they? Then again, they still have their fingers in their ears and their eyes closed so that no facts can get through to them. The GOP is nothing but a bunch of kindergarteners. The tea baggers are a bunch of spoiled kindergarteners.
Statists agitating for the death of individual liberties (aka, libertydies) are still trying to pretend that the UN is relevant and honest. Neither is factually correct, but that never stopped the statists. Today's term o' the day is "modern science" -- because scientific "facts" do indeed have a limited shelf life. And when you have to resort to "science" as your fact base, you're nothing more than a propagandist who has already lost the argument. Science is a study of assumptions, almost universally proven false over time, not a fact base. You've lost the argument. Accept it and move on.
Global Warming: Just Another obama Failure.
Climate Change is purely a scam by wealthy like minded leftists and government authoritarian types to transfer wealth and power from the poor to the wealthy leftist government elites. ie cap n trade
Really? The IPCC admits their own global warming models are not verifying. Now we are to believe this one? The track record is not all that good...Hell if you can accurately tell me what the weather will be like exactly two weeks from now I might believe you?? But yes just trust us on what it might be 5 decades from now??? Wow you are pure genius!!! LOL
but we are told by the alarmists to just shut up and believe the world is moving towards catastrophic climate change and guess what the boogie man is the freedom loving industrious American
