UN Panel: Warming 'Extremely Likely' Man-Made
A United Nations panel said it is more certain than ever humans are a dominant cause of global warming and predicted temperatures would continue to rise this century.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said Friday it is "extremely likely", its strongest words yet, that humans are largely responsible for global warming.
In its last report in 2007, IPCC said it was "very likely" global warming was man-made.
The co-chair of the group that wrote the new report said it has found that the atmosphere and ocean have warmed, snow and ice have diminished, the global mean sea level has risen and the concentration of greenhouse gases has increased.
The U.N. panel predicted that global average temperatures would rise by 0.3 to 4.8 degrees Celsius by 2100 with sea levels rising by 26 to 82 centimeters.
Kenya Holding 8 Suspects In Mall Attack
Kenyan authorities say they are still holding eight people in connection with the deadly four-day siege at a Nairobi shopping mall.
Interior Minister Joseph Ole Lenku told reporters Friday that authorities have released three other suspects.
Earlier this week, officials said five suspected militants were killed as troops and police worked to regain control of the Westgate mall.
The official total death toll from the siege stands at 72.
Investigators continue to sift through the wreckage at the partially collapsed mall. On Friday, the Kenyan Red Cross said 59 people remain missing following the attack.
Lenku said no additional bodies have been recovered from the site.
The Somalia-based al-Shabab extremist group claimed responsibility for the attack and is vowing to carry out other acts of violence against Kenya.
On Twitter Friday, the militant group said its attack on the Westgate mall was "just the premiere of Act 1."
