FAQs about Global Warming

7. Is it proven that global warming is caused by human beings?

In 2013, a scientific team from the United States, called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), ruled that “it is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of warming observed since the mid-twentieth century.” As we know, the greatest anthropogenic influence on global warming has been through the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen oxide. The model projections made by the said group showed that during 21st century the global surface temperature will probably rise between 0.3 °C and 1.7 °C for its most optimistic scenario, provided that strict mitigation is implemented, and between 2.6 °C and 4.8 °C if the Paris Agreement cannot be implemented. The conclusions of the IPCC have been endorsed by the national science academies of the major industrialized countries and are not discussed by any prestigious scientific organization.
