A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of scientists sponsored by the UN, concludes that the rate of climate change is certainly caused by human activity. Talking about their findings, chairman of the panel, Thomas F. Stocker said,
Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. In short, it threatens our planet, our only home.
The report went further, saying,
It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century.
There is ample evidence that climate change is affected, and accelerated by human activity. 97% of scientific studies agree with this conclusion.
