A leaked copy of a U.N. report to be released next month says that scientists believe global warming is because of humans. A copy of the report given to CNN says, "It is extremely likely that human influence on climate caused more than half of the observed increase in global average surface temperature from 1951 to 2010. There is high confidence that this has warmed the ocean, melted snow and ice, raised global mean sea level and changed some climate extremes in the second half of the 20th century."
