Mark Brodine writes at People’s World:
The IPCC report offers further confirmation of what we already knew, that climate change is real, escalating, and mainly caused by human greenhouse gas emissions. Why is this is good? Because more scientists, more scientific facts based on deeper research, and public coverage of climate change are all moving humanity closer to the significant actions that need to be taken to avert the worst impacts. It is another brick in the wall of public scientific understanding against climate denialism, against the cynical and manipulative efforts of the fossil fuel industry and ultra-right political hacks to avoid or at least delay action.
