STOCKHOLM (WKOW) -- A United Nations climate change report published Friday concludes that it is quote, "extremely likely" that human activity accounts for at least half of the global warming that has been observed since the 1950s.
"This report confirms, and you'll hear a lot more about it, with even more certainty than in the past that it is extremely likely, changes in our climate system in the past half a century, are due to human influence," Jarraud said. "And it should serve as yet another wake up call that our activities have a profound impact on society, not only for us, but for many generations to come."
The report also suggests cities like Miami, Florida might be underwater within the next few decades.
Skeptics claim the IPCC exists only to produce further evidence supporting the idea of man-made climate change, while ignoring opposing research.
