Since the 1950s many of the observed changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. â€œOur assessment finds that the atmosphere and oceans have warmed, the amount of snow and ice has diminished, sea level has risen and the concentration of carbon dioxide has increased to a level unprecedented in at least the last 800,000 years,â€ said Thomas Stocker, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group I.

The atmosphere and the oceans warmed, the quantities of snow and ice have decreased, the sea level has increased, alert Thomas Stocker, Vice-Chairman of the IPCC.
The problem, he says, is that more States are slow to take their responsibilities, more the fight becomes difficult.

Thomas Stocker, a professor at the University of Bern who co-chaired a 2013 U.N. report about climate change, said the recent run of warm years meant "the possibility is quite there that this hiatus is over".
Still, he told Reuters that climate trends had to be judged over decades, not by individual years.
