“The group of 57 scientists from around the world used United Nations-approved methods to examine what’s behind last year’s deadly burst of heat. They said even with a faster warming rate they don’t see evidence of significant acceleration in human-caused climate change beyond increased fossil fuel burning.

Last year’s record temperatures were so unusual that scientists have been debating what’s behind the big jump and whether climate change is accelerating or if other factors are in play.

‘If you look at this world accelerating or going through a big tipping point, things aren’t doing that’ study lead author Piers Forster, a Leeds University climate scientist, said. ‘Things are increasing in temperature and getting worse in sort of exactly the way we predicted.'”
