GLOBAL WARMING

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  According to the most recent scientific analysis [6-year long], human activities cause most of the global warming [confidence level 90%-97%].  You can download the complete report on this IPCC website.

TIMELINE

  • 2007 "Most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations."
  • 2001 "There is new and stronger evidence that most of the warming observed over the last 50 years is attributable to human activities.
  • 1995 "The balance of evidence suggests a discernable human influence on global climate."
  • 1990 "The unequivocal detection of the enhanced greenhouse effect from observations is not likely for a decade or more."
