New Climate Report- Humans Are Warming The Planet; There’s No Convincing Evidence for ANY Other Cause

Posted by Dan Satterfield


The 4th U.S. Climate Assessment is HERE.

A summary is here.

Here are some key findings.

I want to highlight what I think is the key finding:

This assessment concludes, based on extensive evidence, that it is extremely likely that human activities,
especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are the dominant cause of the observed warming
since the mid-20th century. For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative
explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence.

Also, the finding that sea level rise will be higher than the global average on the East and Gulf Coasts of the United States.

This graph (from the report) says a lot.
