Abstract(unpublished)
Warming of the global climate over the past century is unequivocal. It is evident in global atmospheric and oceanic temperature data, and from changes in a variety of other physical indicators, including declines in snow and ice cover. Emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from human activity are the main cause of recent global warming and are expected to be the dominant cause of further warming over the coming century, the magnitude of which will be strongly influenced by whether anthropogenic emissions of GHGs continue to grow or are curtailed. These widely accepted conclusions are supported by a large body of evidence (e.g. IPCC, 2007; AMAP, 2011; NRC, 2011; IPCC, 2012, 2013) and provide the global context for examining current and projected changes in Canada's climate.
