After a week of meetings in Sweden, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has come to a consensus. (SOUNDBITE) (English) INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL ON CLIMATE CHANGE (IPCC) WORKING GROUP 1 CO-CHAIR, THOMAS STOCKER, SAYING: "Human influence on the climate system is clear." A new report by the IPCC says it is extremely likely that humans have been the dominant contributor to observed warming. In numbers, "extremely likely" means a probability of at least 95 percent. The report warns the impact of greenhouse gas emissions would linger for centuries and that the Earth is set for further warming, sea level rising and more. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says the report provides new evidence for governments to take action. "This new report will be essential for governments as they work to finalise an ambitious legal agreement on climate change in 2015." A recent U.N. deal stipulates that governments reduce emissions by the end of 2015. Outside the conference, activists say the world must stop arguing and start acting. (SOUNDBITE) (English) AVAAZ CAMPAIGN DIRECTOR, LUIS MORAGO, SAYING: "We are very worried that there is a false media debate, spreading doubt about climate change, but today with the report coming from the IPCC, scientists are telling us that it's 95 percent certain that climate change is manmade and is leading to a catastrophe unless we act now." The report also said temperatures are likely to rise by up to 8.6 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century.
