Data on the Environment 2005

The State of the Environment in Germany

2005 edition

There is growing evidence that climate change is occurring and having effects. The greenhouse effect caused by mankind (anthropogenic) accounts for about 60–70 % of these effects, while natural processes play a far more limited role. Since the beginning of the Industrial Age, human beings have been emitting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, primarily as a result of their energyintensive lifestyle. A primary factor has been the burning of fossil fuels, but also non-energetic production  processes contribute to the growing concentration  of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The climate change thus induced is already clearly identifiable as a rise in global temperatures.
