Climate change is a complex issue that affects us all, and it is important to consider all perspectives and viewpoints. If you are skeptical about the scientific evidence, I would encourage you to take a look at the peer-reviewed research papers and documents that I have provided in this article. These studies, conducted by reputable scientists and published in respected journals, provide a solid foundation of scientific evidence that supports the reality of human-caused climate change.
Politics or no-politics, the importance are factual datasets and research, and the intent is not to blindly believe what IPCC says, however, the information they spread should give each individual enough points to dive in and research themselves. Although, the reports that IPCC publishes are widely accepted in the scientific community as they are based on solid scientific evidence.
It’s also important to acknowledge that there may be different opinions and views on climate change and it’s impacts, but it is essential to base our understanding and actions on robust scientific evidence, rather than opinions or emotions. I invite you to review the facts and evidence presented here, and to consider the potential consequences if we fail to take action to address climate change.

Other important links to refer and educate yourself on Climate Change
The scientific community has been diligent in its efforts to understand and document the causes and impacts of this phenomenon. In this regard, various organizations and agencies have published reports, statements and assessments that provide a comprehensive understanding of the state of the climate and the evidence supporting human-caused climate change.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has recently released their Annual 2022 Global Climate Report, which includes the latest data and analysis on the state of the climate. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has also emphasized the importance of understanding the Earth’s climate and weather through their mandate on the topic of climate change.
Leading organizations such as the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the Royal Society, the National Academy of Sciences, and the American Meteorological Society have affirmed their stance on climate change and have published reports and provided a wide range of resources on the topic. NASA provides key information on various climate indicators and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has published several assessments on the physical science basis of climate change and the findings of the IPCC Working Group I.
Similarly, numerous reputable organizations and agencies have extensively studied and understood the issue of climate change.
Closing Note: Climate Change and Humans
Based on the links that I have provided, I do not find any contradicting information from one citation to another. The studies that I have shared are all consistent in their findings that human activities, particularly the burning of fossil fuels and the resulting increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, are driving ongoing global warming.
However, the scientific understanding of climate change is an ongoing and evolving process. As more research is conducted and new data becomes available, scientists may update their understanding of the mechanisms and impacts of climate change. The links provided from different time periods also reflect the evolution of scientific understanding of climate change, from early observational studies identifying the correlation between the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere and the warming of the Earth’s surface, to more recent studies that provide more detailed understanding of the regional and global impacts of climate change, and the attribution of extreme weather events.
The research papers I have shared are focused on different aspects of climate change and its impacts, some papers may focus on the detection and attribution of climate change, others may focus on specific impacts such as changes in the frequency of extreme temperature events, changes in distribution of fish or the attribution of observed surface humidity changes to human influence.
All the papers and documents that I have shared provide a solid scientific evidence of ongoing global warming and the role of human activities in driving it.
