Are human activities the primary drivers of climate change?

Unchallenged

There have been warmer periods in human history.

Estimates show temperatures during The Medieval Warm Period (approximately 800 to 1300 AD) were warmer than today, and scientists think it may have been the result of decreases in volcanic activity (rather than having anything to do with humans).

Humans have contributed to climate change by burning fossil fuels.

Global consumption of coal, oil and gas has surged since the 19th century, which is concurrent with significant increases in both atmospheric carbon dioxide and average global temperature.

Humans are responsible for (pretty much all) deforestation.

Humans have significantly reduced the number of trees on earth - by cutting down forests for farming, grazing livestock, mining, drilling, urbanisation, producing palm oil and harvesting timber for commercial items - limiting the planet's ability to process atmospheric CO2.

Climate change has happened in the past (likely) as a result of volcanic activity.

Evidence suggests that a period of cooling (often called the "Little Ice Age"), which occured from the 16th century to 19th century, was a result of increased volcanic activity.
