Most scientists are in strong agreement. A recent poll of Earth scientists found that, regardless of their specialty, 82
percent of agreed that the climate is warming and that human activities are contributing to this trend. When specialties are considered, 97 percent of scientists who specifically study climate system agree that recent warming is real and is almost certainly caused by human activities.
Uncertainty remains about how particular aspects of climate change will play out in the future, such as changes in cloud cover or the timing or magnitude of droughts and floods. These do not reflect uncertainty about the basic fact that the climate is changing or that human activities are the primary cause.
