									I've attached a copy of the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change's 2006 report. The IPCC is perhaps the world's leading body of
scientists on the issue of global warming, both its anthropogenic and natural
causes. Their measurements and conclusions are taken as policy all over the
world by over a hundred governments. The panel is comprised of some 2500
scientists from all over the world and their reports, which come out every 5 years,
are considered authoritative and comprehensive. Also below are some
additional links to global warming issues.
I know some of you appreciate good charts and graphs and this report is
chocked full of 'em. Here's a small sample of info from this report:

"Global atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and
nitrous oxide have increased markedly as a result of human activities since
1750 and now far exceed pre-industrial values determined from ice cores
spanning many thousands of years (see Figure SPM-1). The global
increases in carbon dioxide concentration are due primarily to fossil fuel
use and land-use change, while those of methane and nitrous oxide are
primarily due to agriculture. {2.3, 6.4, 7.3}

• Carbon dioxide is the most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas (see
Figure SPM-2). The global atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide has
increased from a pre-industrial value of about 280 ppm to 379 ppm3 in 2005. The
atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide in 2005 exceeds by far the natural
range over the last 650,000 years (180 to 300 ppm) as determined from ice
cores. The annual carbon dioxide concentration growth-rate was larger during
the last 10 years (1995 – 2005 average: 1.9 ppm per year), than it has been
since the beginning of continuous direct atmospheric measurements (1960 –
2005 average: 1.4 ppm per year) although there is year-to-year variability in
growth rates."
