Brussels, September 27 – Earlier today the summary for Policymakers of the Working Group I contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) fifth assessment report was presented. It concludes unequivocally that warming in the climate system is taking place, and that it is extremely likely to have resulted from human influence. In particular, the report indicates that atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) have increased to unprecedented levels, growing by 40% since pre-industrial times, resulting primarily from fossil fuel emissions.
