A comprehensive analysis of peer-reviewed articles on the topic of global warming and climate change has revealed an overwhelming consensus among scientists that recent warming is human-caused.

The study is the most comprehensive yet. It identified 4000 summaries, otherwise known as abstracts, from papers published in the past 21 years that stated a position on the cause of recent global warming - 97 per cent of these endorsed the consensus that we are seeing  "anthropogenic" global warming, in other words, caused by human beings.
