What does it mean to claim that humans cause global warming? - A philosophical analysis of causal claims in the IPCCs arguments for anthropogenic global warming


What does it mean to claim that humans cause global warming? - A philosophical analysis of causal claims in the IPCCs arguments for anthropogenic global warming



Gaia: 2, 205-212



ISSN/ISBN: 0940-5550

The claim that "humans cause global warming" is analysed by means of the regularity conception of causality. A key element in applying the regularity conception is the definition of certain types of events. On this basis, many popular scientific objections against global warming can be refuted through formal reasons.
