From Appropedia

Refers to the effects of the increased average global temperature by the sudden[1] increase of greenhouse gas emissions of human origin, that far outweigh any natural additions to the carbon cycleW such as volcanoes, as studied and reported by the IPCCW and mitigated under the UNFCCCW and Emission Trading System.W

Notes and reference[edit | edit source]

  1. The man-made increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations is occurring on a timescale of a few centuries, since the start of the Industrial Revolution. This is several human lifetimes, but "sudden" in geological terms.
