Try to mitigate the impact: Stabilize/reduce carbon dioxide emissions; Fast transition to non-fossil fuels; Deploy new technologies quickly; Emphasize efficiency and conservation. Kyoto Protocol (1997) Lower emissions of CO 2 to 7% below 1990 levels by 2012; No significant difference unless large developing nations join in the next phase. So, Are We To Blame? The attribution problem is a difficult one. Assessments of the natural variability of the climate use multiple proxies to look for a human ‘fingerprint’.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
