Executive - Summary - Section - Report - Declaration

The Executive Summary section of the report begins with an ominous declaration reflecting the consensus of the scientific community, “The climate of the United States is strongly connected to the changing global climate.”

The summary then goes on to note:

Assessment - Evidence - Activities - Emissions - Greenhouse

This assessment concludes, based on extensive evidence, that it is extremely likely that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence.
