• Greenhouse gases may be responsible for only 5-10% of global warming

    Studies conducted by the department of physics of the University of Turku claim that the report submitted International Panel on Climate Change, which says that carbon dioxide emissions are solely responsible for global warming, is erroneous. According to their analysis, man-made CO2 emissions are only responsible for 5-10% of the total global warming observed. This value is only one-tenth of what the IPCC’s report claims it to be.

    Though the IPCC has had its share of criticism from other sources and it has also made erroneous forecasts in the past, like the melting of the Himalayan glaciers, the veracity of this report still remains to be confirmed.
