Scientists more convinced mankind is main cause of warming

""STOCKHOLM (Reuters)- Leading climate scientists said on Friday they were more convinced than ever that humans are the main culprits for global warming, and predicted the impact from greenhouse gas emissions could linger for centuries.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said in a report that a hiatus in warming this century, when temperatures have risen more slowly despite growing emissions, was a natural variation that would not last.

It said the Earth was set for more heatwaves, floods, droughts and rising sea levels from melting ice sheets that could swamp coasts and low-lying islands as greenhouse gases built up in the atmosphere.

The study, meant to guide governments in shifting towards greener energies, said it was "extremely likely", with a probability of at least 95 percent, that human activities were the dominant cause of warming since the mid-20th century.

That was an increase from "very likely", or 90 percent, in the last report in 2007 and "likely", 66 percent, in 2001.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the study was a call for governments, many of which have been focused on spurring weak economies rather than fighting climate change, to work to reach a planned U.N. accord in 2015 to combat global warming.

"The heat is on. Now we must act," he said of the report agreed in Stockholm after a week of talks between scientists and delegates from more than 110 nations.

European Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard said it was time to treat the Earth's health. "If your doctor was 95 percent sure you had a serious disease, you would immediately start looking for the cure," she said.

Compiled from the work of hundreds of scientists, the report faces extra scrutiny this year after its 2007 edition included an error that exaggerated the rate of melting of Himalayan glaciers. An outside review later found that the mistake did not affect its main conclusions.

The IPCC said some effects of warming would last far beyond current lifetimes.

Sea levels could rise by 3 meters (9 feet, 10 inches) under some scenarios by 2300 as ice melted and heat made water in the deep oceans expand, it said. About 15 to 40 percent of emitted carbon dioxide would stay in the atmosphere for more than 1,000 years.

"As a result of our past, present and expected future emissions of carbon dioxide, we are committed to climate change and effects will persist for many centuries even if emissions of carbon dioxide stop," said Thomas Stocker, co-chair of the talks.

The IPCC said humanity had emitted about 530 billion tons of carbon, more than half the 1 trillion ton budget it estimated as a maximum to keep warming to manageable limits. Annual emissions are now almost 10 billion tons and rising.

Explaining a recent slower pace of warming, the report said the past 15-year period was skewed by the fact that 1998 was an extremely warm year with an El Nino event - a warming of the ocean surface - in the Pacific.

It said warming had slowed "in roughly equal measure" because of random variations in the climate and the impact of factors such as volcanic eruptions, when ash dims sunshine, and a cyclical decline in the sun's output.

Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the IPCC, told Reuters the reduction in warming would have to last far longer - "three or four decades" - to be a sign of a new trend.

And the report predicted that the reduction in warming would not last, saying temperatures from 2016-35 were likely to be 0.3-0.7 degree Celsius (0.5 to 1.3 Fahrenheit) warmer than in 1986-2005.""

Time for cons and Teabaggers to quit putting their heads up their asses and pretending climate change isn't real.

But they're married to stupidity, so they likely won't change.

It's up to TRUE AMERICANS to beat their backwards butts to a pulp, as we have on gay civil rights and women's reproductive rights.

Obama's team found and had Bin Laden killed.
Obama's sanctions got Iran to blink and ask for talks.
Bush got nothing out of Iran for 8 years, nitwit. All he did was bluster.
Obama's threats got Syria to admit, for the first time in their history, that it actually had a chemical weapons program. They had never admitted to it before Obama threatened them with Air Strikes.
Putin went along, he is desperate to save any part of the Assad regime he can.
Obama is also making more progress on the Israeli Palestinian peace talks than Bush's stupid 'Roadmap to Peace' ever accomplished.
Where is that roadmap, you old lying fool??
You are right, they held the military exercises.

Obama cancelled an intercontinental ballistic missile to APPEASE the North Koreans!!!

Obama hasn't made any progress in the Israeli Palestinian matter. All he's really done is let the world know he's on the Palestinian/terrorist side. Few see that as progress.

OK, now you can resume getting pumped....
Funny how Waxturd's retarded puppet keeps referring to an eection in 2010, while ignoring the electionof 2012, where Obama beat the Magic Mormon and Dems gained seats in both the House and Senate.

That was the election where 'AMERICA VOTED FOR OBAMACARE'!!

Suck on that for awhile.

Of course, Waxturd is well known for his stupidity, as well as his cadre of sockpuppets.

Democrats: LetÂ’s Ban Profits!

The Democrats just don’t get..they want socialism/communism and they want the American lifestyle..you can’t have both. Profits drive the American economy, without profits you have poverty. Isn’t that what we are fighting to get out of Poverty, isn’t that what Obama is promising to get rid of Poverty. How do you climb out of POVERTY without PROFIT? Has Cuba, Korea Vietnam or any communist/socialist country pulled out of poverty without PROFIT. Every successful socialist country (Canada, Germany, England, The Netherlands, Switzerland for example) encourage business they don’t attack business as EVIL. Look at the communist countries they attack business as EVIL. SO here is the difference people between a socialist and a communist and it is pretty clear that Obama is a communist NOT a socialist don’t be confused “lets be clear”…

Obama = Communishttp://theevilgovernme nt.com/democrats-lets-ban-prof its/

lol! C'mon cons! Take another one of your 'leader's' advice!!!!

"Sarah Palin tells GOP to 'woman up' on shutdown threats. What's her point?
Sarah Palin says the GOP establishment is running scared from the idea that it could be blamed for a government shutdown.'Woman up' and do the right thing, she said in an opinion article.

Christian Science Monitor
Peter Grier September 23, 2013 3:54 PM

Sarah Palin has penned an opinion article for the conservative Breitbart website supporting Sen. Ted Cruz (R) of Texas and his effort to defund Obamacare. It’s vintage Palin – she refers to “peanut gallery pundits,” and “Capitol Hill cowards” among other alliterations. But the part that’s perhaps getting the most attention is her advice to Republicans:“Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!”

OK, we’ll bite – what’s she saying here, and why?

First, Ms. Palin’s theme as a whole: Senator Cruz and his supporters are fighting the good fight against a health-care reform law Americans don’t support. But instead of supporting Cruz and his “liberty-loving posse” in their attempt to stop “Obama’s train wreck,” the Republican establishment in Washington is running the other way.

RECOMMENDED: How well do you know Sarah Palin? A quiz.

“The permanent political class in DC is nothing if not gutless and rudderless,” writes Palin.

Anonymous sources are backstabbing Cruz in the press, says the former Alaska governor, while the permanent political class worries that the media will blame Republicans for a government shutdown if the fight over the president’s signature domestic achievement leads to that.

“Here’s a little newsflash, GOP establishment: Whenever anything bad happens, the media blames Republicans for it,” writes Palin.“That’s not an excuse to roll over and play dead. It’s a call to follow the advice I give my daughters: Woman up, stand your ground, and fight like a girl!”..."
