The Case for Anthropogenic Warming, I, Richard McGehee, School of Mathematics

Scientific evidence overwhelmingly indicates that the Earth's surface temperature is warming and that the primary cause of the warming is the increase in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The evidence also indicates that human activity is the major source of the increase.
