Tom Harris’ recent commentaries distort the maturity of the science underlying industrial climate disruption and conflate the real expertise of climate scientists with the imagined expertise of most “opinion leaders,” engineers, and economists. Part Four of Six.
IPCC physical science Summary for Policymakers: 95% certain that human activity is dominating climate disruption
Increased global temperatures are “unequivocal,” human influence is 95-100% likely to be dominant driver of those changes, and the best-case scenario implies fundamental changes to political institutions and energy production. Welcome to Climate Change 2013 – the Physical Science Basis Summary for Policymakers.
