More precisely, the unequivocal rise in the Earth’s average temperature since the Industrial Revolution, and especially during the past three decades, “cannot be explained by natural processes alone. 1 shows in the bar graph (a) that CO2 from fossil fuels and other sources (primarily concrete manufacturing) is by far the most abundant of the persistent atmospheric greenhouse gases. CO2 from deforestation and decay of biomass, peat, and other nonfossil carbon releases from terrestrial and marine ecosystems is the second largest portion.

The oceanic sink for anthropogenic CO2,” Science 305, no. 5682 (2004). * The rate of increase or decrease in the global volume of emissions and the total atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases will be a primary determinate of the degree of warming over the next century and beyond. Because of the persistent nature of CO2 in the atmosphere, cumulative emissions are a primary determinant of future warming. ” The report relies on the research of more than 300 scientists from 160 research groups in 48 countries.
