A quick report from Paris:

The most authoritative report on climate change is using the strongest wording ever on the source of global warming, saying it is “very likely” caused by humans and already is leading to killer heat waves and stronger hurricanes, delegates who have seen the report said Thursday….

That means they agree that there is a 90 percent chance that global warming is caused by humans.

We are the cause, which means we are the solution. The time to act is now!

    Its unfortunate that the media also seems to be latching onto the assessment that future warming will be unstoppable. It misleads your average person to believing we can’t do ANYTHING to bring this under control eventually. I guess I should just be happy the media is actually giving this some air time.

    You are wrong.

    In fact, global warming is a combination of anthropogenic and natural warming. Both contribute, and you are wrong to say GW is “caused” by humans. Only some of it is caused by global warming.

    Look at the IPCC TAR v1, Technical Summary of WG1, p 58
    http://www.grida.no/climate/ipcc_tar/wg1/026.htm#e5

    There are graphs that very clearly show that only a combination of anthropogenic and natural forcings can account for the observed climate from 1860-2000.
