The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Working Group I put out it’s Fifth Assessment Report in September. The press release on September 27 from Stockholm, Sweeden had the following to report.
“Human influence on the climate system is clear,” and “Warming in the climate system is unequivocal,” IPCC report says.
Thomas Stocker, the other Co-Chair of Working Group I said: “Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system. Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.”
“Heat waves are very likely to occur more frequently and last longer. As the Earth warms, we expect to see currently wet regions receiving more rainfall, and dry regions receiving less, although there will be exceptions,” he added.
Co-Chair Thomas Stocker concluded: “As a result of our past, present and expected future emissions of CO2, we are committed to climate change, and effects will persist for many centuries even if emissions of CO2 stop.”
