New IPCC report: Evidence supporting climate change is ‘unequivocal’

Climate change is happening, according to a new report.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seems to have a problem.

The international group has expressed concerns after a blogger posted an early copy of their upcoming report. The IPCC, which is part of the United Nations (U.N.), is currently working on a climate change report titled the Fifth Assessment Report, which will be published next year. Noted global warming skeptic  Alec Rawls, who created the blog Stop Green Suicide, leaked part of the report online, prompting an outpouring of criticism after the agency reaffirmed its agreement that the report was to remain sealed until its official release.
