Fossil fuels are to blame, world scientists conclude

Rising sea levels could threaten low-lying Pacific islands, coasts from Bangladesh to Florida and cities from Shanghai to Buenos Aires.<BR>

USA Today on the international analysis of climate change due Friday, which will conclude that humankind’s reliance on fossil fuels — coal, fuel oil and natural gas — is to blame for global warming.

The new report will lay the blame at the feet of fossil fuels with “virtual certainty,” meaning 99% sure. That’s a significant jump from “likely,” or 66% sure, in the group’s last report in 2001.

Gotta love USA Today’s use of graphics.
