Report shows increasingly strong evidence that climate change is due to human influence

Gary Yohe, Huffington Foundation Professor of Economics and Environmental Studies, professor of economics, professor of environmental studies, spoke to The CT Mirror about a newly released report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The report showed stronger evidence than ever before that climate change is caused by human activity, and recommended an upper limit for carbon emissions. Yohe has been active in the IPCC since the early 1990’s. He is a member of Working Group II, which will release its report in March 2014 on the consequences of climate change.
