IPCC Report

IMG_0799IPCC Report Confirms Humans Cause Climate Warming

The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)report released Saturday, states that it is extremely likely (95-99% certainty) that humans have caused over 50% of the global increase in temperature since 1951.  Read more on the 350.org website, which highlights these points:

  • 95%-100% is the same level of certainty as that smoking cigarettes causes cancer

  • The earth has a carbon budget of 1 trillion metric tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere before warming will exceed 2oC, a critical point.  More than half of this budget has already been used.

  • The last three decades have been the three warmest in recorded history.

Articles from The GuardianGlobe and Mail, and The Star analyze the IPCC report.
