Eight great figures summarizing the evidence for a “human fingerprint” on recent climate change

Physicist John Cook, who runs the must-read website Skeptical Science, has published “The Scientific Guide to Global Warming Skepticism.”  It’s a good introduction to global warming science and skepticism.

He kindly agreed to send me the 8 figures of the “human fingerprints on climate change,” which I repost below.

The clever deniers these days don’t deny the painfully obvious reality that the planet is warming or that climate is changing — they simply deny that humans are a major cause.

But in fact there is an overabundance of evidence that humans are warming the planet and changing the climate, so much so that the U.S. National Academy of Sciences labels as “settled facts” that “the Earth system is warming and that much of this warming is very likely due to human activities.”

Here are key fingerprint figures:
