The BBC reports:
Scientists are more certain than ever that greenhouse gases from human activities are heating the planet, the head of the UN’s climate panel says.
Rajendra Pachauri made the comments in an interview with BBC News.
He also dismissed suggestions of a slowdown in global warming…
“There’s definitely an increase in our belief that climate change is taking place and that human beings are responsible,” he told me.
“I don’t think there is a slowdown (in the rate of temperature increase). I would like to draw your attention to the World Meteorological Organization which clearly stated on the basis of observations that the first decade of this century has been the warmest in recorded history.
“And I think the rest will be brought out by the report itself when it’s released.”
