Media reports often assert that global warming is real, imminent, and a threat to human life. But, have such predictions been established scientifically.

Studies by the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have been used (or misused) to call for extensive government controls to reduce fossil fuel use. Yet, the IPCC's own report--and. global warming, the gradual increase of the temperature of the earth's lower atmosphere as a result of the increase in greenhouse gases since the Industrial warming and its effects, such as more intense summer and winter storms, are also referred to as climate change.

The reason for this has to do with what we can or should do about global warming. The more that global warming is natural, the less it is necessary to change our ways to curtail it. The more that.
