There are a number of historical and scientific theories that suggest there is a link between climate change and human advancement from prehistoric to modern times.

Scientifically, the Earth as we know it is not static or constant. Evidence that human activities influence the global climate system continues to accumulate. Data indicate that Earth's surface temperature is rising. This increase can be attributed, in part, to human-caused increases in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.

A climate forcing is an imposed change of Earth's energy balance, as may be caused, for example, by a change of the sun's brightness or a human-made change of atmospheric CO 2.
