Leaked IPCC draft: Human climate link stronger than ever

The leaked draft of the 2013 IPCC report – ironically disseminated by a climate sceptic – makes for sober reading, with the human link to climate change stronger than ever and the risk of a 2 degree rise increasing.

International climate scientists are more certain than ever that humans are responsible for global warming, rising sea levels and extreme weather events, according to a leaked draft report by an influential panel of experts.

The early draft, which is still subject to change before a final version is released in late 2013, showed that a rise in global average temperatures since pre-industrial times was set to exceed 2 degrees Celsius by 2100, and may reach 4.8 Celsius.
