Climate in a wider sense is the state, including a statistical description, of the climate system. Climate Variability is defined as variations in the mean state and other statistics of the climate on all temporal and spatial scales, beyond individual weather events.

Previous workers have examined atmospheric vertical temperature and report anthropogenic influence on climate. However, none of these considered the influence of natural forcing factors which may have been an influence on surface temperatures. Two issues are addressed here. Firstly, whether the observed tropospheric warming might be explained by solar forcing and the observed stratospheric cooling by the effects of ozone depletion.
Global Climate Change: What You Need to Know
Author contributions: F. The rate of change of climate codetermines the global warming impacts on natural and socioeconomic systems and their capabilities to adapt. Establishing past rates of climate change from temperature proxy data remains difficult given their limited spatiotemporal resolution. In contrast, past greenhouse gas radiative forcing, causing climate to change, is well known from ice cores. We compare rates of change of anthropogenic forcing with rates of natural greenhouse gas forcing since the Last Glacial Maximum and of solar and volcanic forcing of the last millennium. The smoothing of atmospheric variations by the enclosure process of air into ice is computed with a firn diffusion and enclosure model. The 20th century increase in CO 2 and its radiative forcing occurred more than an order of magnitude faster than any sustained change during the past 22, years.
There is currently a strong scientific consensus that the Earth is warming and that this warming is mainly caused by human activities. This consensus is supported by various studies of scientists' opinions and by position statements of scientific organizations, many of which explicitly agree with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC synthesis reports. Several studies of the consensus have been undertaken. This scientific opinion is expressed in synthesis reports , by scientific bodies of national or international standing, and by surveys of opinion among climate scientists. Individual scientists, universities, and laboratories contribute to the overall scientific opinion via their peer-reviewed publications , and the areas of collective agreement and relative certainty are summarised in these respected reports and surveys. National and international science academies and scientific societies have assessed current scientific opinion on global warming.

Research has also evaluated actions that could be taken—and in some cases are already being taken—to limit the magnitude of future climate change and adapt to its impacts. In the United States, a series of reports by the U. Internationally, scientific information about climate change is periodically assessed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC , most recently in Much has been learned, and this knowledge base is continuously being updated and expanded with new research results.

As shown in the previous section, prehistoric changes in climate have been very slow. Climate changes typically occur slowly over many millions of years. The climate changes observed today are rapid and largely human-caused. Evidence shows that climate is changing, but what is causing that change? Scientists have suspected since the late s that human-produced anthropogenic changes in atmospheric greenhouse gases would likely cause climate change, as changes in these gases have been the case every time in the geologic past. By the middle s, systematic measurements began which confirmed that human-produced carbon dioxide was accumulating in the atmosphere and other earth systems, like forests and the oceans.

Determining the human contribution to observed variations in Earth's climate is made more difficult by the fact that the climate system also varies naturally, due to interactions of different parts of the atmosphere with each other and with the underlying oceans. These natural variations exist on time scales of several years to decades. The shorter the time span of the data record, the more difficult it is to separate systematic changes due to human activities such as greenhouse gas emissions and the production of aerosol particles from natural variations. Figure 1. The brown triangles show the temperature variations when the ENSO effect is subtracted from the original data. The red squares show the portion of the remaining variation that is associated with the long-term global warming trend in the GISTEMP data, and the green circles show the corresponding long-term global warming trend in the ERSST data.

Он посмотрел еще внимательнее. Да, он сумел прочитать эти слова, и их смысл был предельно ясен. Прочитав их, Беккер прокрутил в памяти все события последних двенадцати часов. Комната в отеле Альфонсо XIII.
Вдруг она ощутила страшное одиночество. Стратмор увидел пятна крови на ее блузке и тотчас пожалел о своей вспышке.
Anthropogenic Sources of Greenhouse Gases
Неужели уехала без меня в Стоун-Мэнор. - Эй! - услышал он за спиной сердитый женский голос и чуть не подпрыгнул от неожиданности. - Я… я… прошу прощения, - заикаясь, сказал Беккер и застегнул молнию на брюках. Повернувшись, он увидел вошедшую в туалет девушку. Молоденькая, изысканной внешности, ну прямо сошла со страниц журнала Севентин.
Беккер снова кивнул, вспомнив ночь, когда слушал гитару Пако де Лючии - фламенко под звездами в крепости XV века. Вот бы побывать здесь вместе со Сьюзан. - И, разумеется, Христофора Колумба? - просиял лейтенант. - Он похоронен в нашем соборе. Беккер удивленно посмотрел на. - Разве.
Давай. Все ждали, когда Соши откроет нужный раздел. - Вот, - сказала. - Стоп. - И быстро пробежала глазами информацию. Здесь имелась масса всяческих сведений. - И откуда мы знаем, что именно ищем.
Коммандер не спешил с ответом: - Автор алгоритма - частное лицо. - Как же так? - Сьюзан откинулась на спинку стула. - У нас внизу работают лучшие программисты в мире.
