IPCC climate report: humans ‘dominant cause’ of warming
On 27 September 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published its fifth report on climate change. The report says that scientists are 95 percent certain that humans are the ‘dominant cause’ of global warming since the 1950s.
The panel warns that continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all aspects of the climate system. To contain these changes will require ‘substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions’.
