Comprehensive Review of Climate Change Science

The evidence for anthropogenic global warming is unassailable. In 2009, 18 scientific groups — including the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Meteorological Society — issued a joint statement indicating that human activities are the “primary driver” of climate change. The National Academy of Sciences (the gold standard for objective scientific assessment) have also clearly supported the body of evidence on anthropogenic global warming.

“Some scientific conclusions or theories have been so thoroughly examined and tested, and supported by so many independent observations and results, that their likelihood of subsequently being found to be wrong is vanishingly small. Such conclusions and theories are then regarded as settled facts. This is the case for the conclusions that the Earth system is warming and that much of this warming is due to human activities."

Here are 33 articles, reports and studies that support the existence of anthropogenic climate change:
  1. No scientific body of national or international standing maintains a dissenting opinion on climate change
  2. September 2012 was the Warmest in Recorded History (NOAA)
  3. Strong Body of Evidence for a Changing Climate
  4. American Meteorological Society Corroborates Anthropogenic Climate Change
  5. More Scientific Support for Anthropogenic Climate Change
