Official Nat'l Park acct. tweets consensus on climate change

The official account of Joshua Tree National Park on Wednesday tweeted about an "overwhelming consensus" that humanity activity is the driving force behind climate change.

"An overwhelming consensus—over 97%—of climate scientists agree that human activity is the driving force behind today's rate of global temperature increase," the account tweeted.

"Natural factors that impact the climate are still at work, but cannot account for today’s rapid warming."

In a subsequent tweet, the account said emissions from burning fossil fuels have "increased the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere."
