NJ state climatologist confirms climate change is caused by human activity

CHERRY HILL — (SBN) — Global climate change is real, and a “preponderance of the scientific evidence” suggests that it is caused mainly by human activity, Dr. David Robinson, New Jersey’s state climatologist, told about 65 people at a Sustainable Cherry Hill panel discussion last night.

Robinson, a geology professor at Rutgers University, pointed to several climate trends, including the fact that three of the warmest years on record have taken place since 1980, and the three warmest summers have taken place since 2005.
