There is less than 1 chance in 100,000 that global average temperature over the past 60 years would have been as high without human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, new research shows.
Published in the journal Climate Risk Management today, our research is the first to quantify the probability of historical changes in global temperatures and examines the links to greenhouse gas emissions using rigorous statistical techniques.
Our new CSIRO work provides an objective assessment linking global temperature increases to human activity, which points to a close to certain probability exceeding 99.999%.
Our work extends existing approaches undertaken internationally to detect climate change and attribute it to human or natural causes. The 2013 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report provided an expert consensus that:
It is extremely likely [defined as 95-100% certainty] that more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010 was caused by the anthropogenic [human-caused] increase in greenhouse gas concentrations and other anthropogenic forcings together.
Decades of Extraordinary Temperatures
July 2014 was the 353rd consecutive month in which global land and ocean average surface temperature exceeded the 20th-century monthly average. The last time the global average surface temperature fell below that 20th-century monthly average was in February 1985, as reported by the US-based National Climate Data Center.
This means that anyone born after February 1985 has not lived a single month where the global temperature was below the long-term average for that month.

accurate summary of the show too tbh
Got to watch a boatload of Kate Todd NCIS episodes yesterday (thank you, USA Network NCIS marathon!). Had never seen Sasha Alexander on NCIS, so I was quite interested to see her in that role.
I would love to ask her how she approached the audition for Maura Isles, because I was quite surprised at how different she interpreted both roles. What did she read, and how did she read it? What did she see in Maura and how did she present her in the audition? I ask because I kept looking for acting quirks that she uses in both characters and really couldn’t see any- just a great performance in both roles that are quite different from each other. I’ll be interested to see what she does after Rizzoli & Isles, because if Kate/Maura are anything to go by, she seems to look for different challenges, rather than picking the same kind of roles.
I was quite impressed.
I hope the author continues.
