Arguments of deniers who misinform about Climate Change

10 highlights from the latest IPCC report

(1) There is no doubt that humans are responsible for climate change. We already see an increase of 1.1°C above the 1850–1900 average. Natural activity (solar and volcanic) is responsible for affecting between -0.1°C to +0.1C the global average temperature. The internal variability was of the order of -0.2°C to +0.2C. There is no doubt, it is us.

(2) Greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase due to unsustainable energy use, land use, changes in land use, lifestyles, and production and consumption patterns. Net anthropogenic emissions were estimated at almost 60 GtCO2-eq* in 2019, 12% higher than in 2010 and 54% higher than in 1990.

(3) We are modifying everything, very quickly and that has consequences. There have been widespread and rapid changes in the atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere, and biosphere. Human-caused climate change is already affecting the frequency, intensity and duration of many extreme weather and climate events in all regions of the world. This has led to widespread adverse impacts and related loss and damage to nature and people.
