New evidence for man-made global warming

New evidence for man-made global warming
Quote:The Met Office-led report looked at the latest figures on global temperatures, melting sea ice and humidity. It also considered new evidence on the extent of warming in the Antarctic, rainfall patterns and salinity of the oceans.

It concluded that is was "human influence" that is changing the climate.

However, sceptics insisted the new report did little to back up the case for spending billions of pounds on tackling global warming.

The recent 'climategate' scandal around stolen emails from the University of East Anglia has cast doubt on the science around climate change. Sceptics claim that the emails show scientists were willing to manipulate the data to show that global warming is a man-made phenomenon.

The UN body in charge of climate science, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, is also under fire after being forced to retract claims that the Himalayan glaciers could melt by 2035.

The IPCC won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for their seminal report that claimed global warming is almost certainly caused by man-made green house gases.

The latest report, published in Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews Climate Change, found that since then even more evidence has emerged to back up the case.

The study, by six IPCC scientists from around the world, looked at 101 papers including evidence that was not in the earlier report. This included some of the first evidence of rising temperatures in Antarctic and new analysis of changing rainfall patterns across the world. There have also been fresh studies of humidity and salinity in the oceans, that increases with global warming because water is evaporating faster.

Dr Peter Stott, from the Met Office Hadley Centre in Exeter, who co-led the study, said all the new evidence on melting sea ice in the Arctic and rising global temperatures point to man made global warming.

"It shows that evidence has strengthened over the last two or three years that human influence is changing the climate," he said.

Dr Stott hoped the study would add to the ongoing debate about whether mankind is to blame for global warming.

"I just hope people look at the evidence," he said. "This is really what it is up to scientists to do - to show the climate is changing in such a systematic way it is consistent with understanding and with the expected response to human activities. I just hope people will look at that evidence and make up their minds informed by the scientific evidence."

However well known sceptic Professor Bjorn Lomborg, said people remain confused about the impacts of climate change and what the world should do about it.

"If the study confirms what the UN has been telling us - that global warming is real and man made and really happening - that would be great. But the scepticism is much more on the actual impacts and what we are doing," he said. "Just like other serious problems we should not magnify global warming for affect."

Godfrey Bloom, the UKIP MEP and member of the European Parliament Environment Committee, questioned the study itself.

"I have seen no published evidence that goes beyond a rather unlikely hypothesis that man caused global warming and it is getting thinner by the day," he said. "So before we disturb the global economy we need to take a step back and re-evaluate."

This article failed to point out the IPCC excluded 1500+ papers that didn't support their view from their report.

By the way it was a predictable whitewash
