Scientists Say IPCC Report Should Be Wake-Up Call

IPCC Report Released Friday IPCC Report Released Friday

Good Monday Morning!

Last Friday... the new U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report was released and scientist say should serve as a "wake-up call" to governments and society about the role of humans in global warming.

"It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century," the IPCC's Fifth Assessment Report found.

"This report confirms with even more certainty than in the past... that it is extremely likely that the changes in our climate system for the past half a century are due to human influence," Michel Jarraud, Secretary General of the World Meteorological Organization, which co-sponsored the IPCC, said in a statement.

More than 800 authors across more than 39 countries contributed to the working group's 2,500-page assessment... which draws on millions of observations and numerical data from climate model simulations.

If you are interested in reading part or even all of the report... here is the link to find it...
