Climatologists finally agreed: global warming is caused by human activities

    imageThe authors of several scientific papers that calculated the opinions of scientists regarding the causes of global warming, together created another work designed to put an end to this issue. There are two main conclusions of the work: from 90% to 100% of experts agree that people are to blame for global warming (in most cases the number of consonants is 97%), and the higher the authority of an expert in climate science, the more willingly he agrees with this statement.

    Questions about the average temperature of the planet and the factors influencing it began to be raised by European science in the 19th century. The first theory on the influence of the atmosphere on Earth’s temperature was expressed by mathematician and natural philosopher Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier, born in 1768.

    And in 1862, the English physicist John Tyndall discovered the opacity of gases, in particular CO 2 , for thermal radiation, and therefore he set out one of the first considerations about the effect of this gas on the temperature of the planet.

    The last step in this logical chain was made by Svante August Arrhenius, a Swedish physicist-chemist, author of the theory of electrolytic dissociation and Nobel Prize winner in chemistry (1903). He thought that the active burning of fossil fuels would increase the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which, in turn, would end in global warming.

    The new work basically refutes the criticism of previous works on this topic, and shows that attempts to underestimate the number of people agreeing with the anthropogenicity of global warming were made by including people who are not climate experts in the polls.

    If you trust scientists and specialists, then, apparently, questions about the nature of global warming, as well as about the very existence of such a phenomenon, should no longer arise. Now you need to focus on finding solutions to this problem.

    Political methods to eliminate it are clearly not enough - the most famous attempt, the Kyoto Protocol, which was initiated already in 1997. However, the largest developing countries, China and India, have not undertaken any obligations in connection with it, and the United States has not yet ratified it.
