    > "Human-caused climate change is responsible for the long-term warming – it's responsible for why the 2010s were warmer than 2000s, which were warmer than the 1990s, etc.," Texas A&M University climate scientist Andrew Dessler said in an email.

    > The United States, which had only its 34th warmest year, was nevertheless hit by 14 weather disasters that caused $1 billion US or more in damage last year, according to NOAA. Globally, the past five years have been the hottest five on record, nearly 0.9 C warmer than the 20th century average, according to NOAA. The last year Earth was cooler than the 20th century average was 1976, before Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, French President Emmanuel Macron and Donald Trump Jr. were born.

    > Global warming is already being seen in heat waves, ice sheet melt, more wildfires, stronger storms, flood-inducing downpours and accelerating sea level rise, said Hans-Otto Portner, who heads the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change team that looks at the impact of climate change.
