According to a reliable press source, the human-made global warming has recently reached a gold standard, which means that the evidence in this direction is reliable and in abundance. That also means further pressure on the requirement to limit greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on growing global temperatures.
Humanity as a whole is no longer able to ignore the proof and the time to act has come. A US team surveyed over four decades of satellite temperature measurements and came up with an in-depth study.
The confidence level in the argument that human activities play a significant role in the increase of global temperatures has reached a five-sigma level. According to the measurement system, there is a one-in-a-million chance that the hypothesis is faulty. The same gold standard was used back in 2012 when the existence of the Higgs boson subatomic particle was confirmed.
The human-made global warming is approaching a record level
High-ranking members of the scientific community have already stated that the results of the study are a clear warning which should motivate the countries of the world to take a step in the right direction.
The US President Donald Trump had often criticized ecologist points of view, casting further doubt on global warming when he decided to retire the country from the Paris climate agreement, a large scale diplomatic effort which aims to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels.
Official statistics note that 62% Of the Americans believe that climate change is influenced by human activity, up by 15% in comparison to 2013. The adverse effects of global warming are becoming more visible with each year that passes. The speed at which Antarctic glaciers are melting is already posing a substantial threat since the level of the sea could rise by up to 10 feet.
The quest to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is further complicated by the fact that clean solutions still carry prohibitive costs, which makes them unattractive for a large number of in-development countries.
