A new report by the United Nations blames humans for global warming but cautions it is not too late to stop the warming trend.
Top international scientists also warns humans and governments are most crucial is change is to take place.
In recent years, there have been conflicting reports on global warming.
Some scientists say global warming is real and humans have to take heed.
While others say scientists make too much of global warming.
Also more people are wondering if recent disasters around the world are linked to global warming.
And now the world’s top climate scientists have formally embraced an upper limit on greenhouse gases for the first time.
These scientists have established a target level at which humanity must stop spewing the gases into the atmosphere.
This report published by the United Nations intergovernmental panel on climate change warns of rising temperatures and cautions global warming could have devastating effects as the risk of heat waves, floods and droughts increases.
Representatives of the 195 UN member states have just published a 31 page summary of the report.
The detailed report is actually more than 1,000 pages long.
The summary says prospects of global warming are even more pessimistic than scientists had projected in 2007.
The report stresses it is 95 per cent certain that mankind caused more than half the warming observed over the past 60 years.
It says humans produce an incredible amount of carbon dioxide which heats up the atmosphere.
The carbon dioxide levels continue to rise.
Sea levels are also expected to rise at a much faster pace.
World leaders, particularly in North America, India and China and other highly industrialized countries must take heed of this report.
This report cannot and should not be taken lightly and put on the shelf.
Immediate action is needed and environmentalists have to start making more noise about this.
World scientists say global warming is going to continue.
Even though global average temperatures have not risen in 15 years as predicted, it does not mean climate change will not have devastating effects on Earth.
This is what most world scientists and researchers agree on.
If you are 95 per cent sure mankind causes more than half of the warming, then it is time to do something about it.
In recent years, we have seen and heard news reports of extreme heat and uncontrollable forest fires and extraordinary downpours resulting in unexpected flooding.
Global warming has already been the subject of a great deal of controversy.
But, now we have more credible information from the United Nations.
The issue of global warming was first raised in the early 1960.
In recent years, global warming has become a politically charged issue particularly because of the massive amounts of power and money tired to industries that emit carbon dioxide.
For many people like me, climate change is a difficult concept to grasp.
Environment Canada’s most optimistic projections for climate change predicts even faster warming of the atmosphere than the consensus view reached recently by an international panel assessing the latest scientific evidence.
