A recent report by Nature Climate Change, states that the global rise in temperatures have human fingerprints, and reached a five-stigma statistic, meaning there is a “one-in-one-million chance that humans are not the cause of global warming.”
According to Reuters report “Peter Stott of the British Met office, said he would favor raising the probability one notch to ‘virtually certain’, or 99-100 percent.”
The statement that humans caused climate change, may “now officially hold-true to a 99.9999 percent accuracy.”
Global Temperature Anomalies from 1880 to 2018
This color-coded map in Robinson projection displays a progression of changing global surface temperature anomalies from 1880 through 2018. Higher than normal temperatures are shown in red and lower then normal termperatures are shown in blue. The final frame represents the global temperatures 5-year averaged from 2014 through 2018. Scale in degree Celsius.
