A post surfaced the social media claiming that “man-made climate change (is a) scam.” The author of the post also wrote, “Don’t you dare question it though or you will be branded a ‘Climate change denier’ and you shall be canceled for it.”
From the investigation done by Rumor Scanner, it was identified that many climate skeptics don’t believe in climate change caused by humans. However, there is an abundance of evidence that shows that humans are contributing to Climate Change.
Scientists have concluded with great confidence that the main reason for warming is human-produced greenhouse gases that get trapped in the atmosphere.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, the National Science Foundation, the National Research Council, and the Environmental Protection Agency all agree that the earth is warming mainly due to the increase in human-produced heat-trapping gases.
In brief, humans are the reason behind climate change.
