The Headline says:
'World Scientists Say Humans Causing Global Warming'
Further down in the article it says human activities are 'the major cause', implying there are other contributing causes.
Yet even further down it says humans are 'a major cause', meaning there are other major contributing factors to global warming that are not human
So this story starts out as humans are the cause, to humans are the primary contributor, to humans are one of many contributors to global warming.
The author cannot even keep his hypocrisy and contradictions straight. Had the story gone on longer humans would not be involved at all.
Yes, the climate is warming. No one seriously disputes that. There are many factors involved with the warming. Again no dispute. Humans are a
contributor. Most likely, yes. Now here is where the dispute comes in. Are humans the majority cause with the cumulative effect all other non-human
factors of lesser impact? That is very unknown and there is no scientific consensus on that statement. The evidence suggests no. But either way the
climate would be warming whether humans were even on the planet or not. This article admits that.
