Here's what she said

First she gave historical proof it is warming;
Beyond temperature measures, Hayhoe said there are more than 26,000 indicators that the climate is changing. Blueberry production in Maine is moving to Quebec, and the beginning of Kyoto’s cherry blossom festival has started three weeks earlier than in its first celebration, 1,100 years ago, she said.

“Birds, trees, bugs, fish, ice—this is what’s telling us there is something different happening everywhere, not just here where we live,” Hayhoe said.

Hayhoe said there are a number of other “usual suspects” climate researchers examine before attributing the cause of climate change to humans. These include the Earth’s orbit around the sun, volcanic activity, climate cycles like El Niño and the impact of the Sun’s energy on Earth.

And OF course ALL of these have been examined extensively already.
I've put a number of posts to these already.
