Scientists cite burning fossil fuels as the cause of more severe floods, droughts, heat waves and rising sea levels.

Evidence that humans have caused global warming has reached the "gold standard" level of certainty, scientists said Monday.

A study published Monday in the journal "Nature Climate Change" stated that "humanity cannot afford to ignore" the rising temperatures over the past four decades. According to Reuters, the authors wrote that the confidence level that human activities are causing temperatures to rise reached a five-sigma level. Sigma levels are statistical measurements that gauge how certain results are. Level five indicates that the researchers' conclusions are more than 99.7 percent accurate. It's known as the "gold standard."

Lead author of the study Benjamin Santer said he hopes the conclusions will change the minds of skeptics and urge people to take action, Reuters reported. He said that, despite a misconception that scientists don't know a certain cause of climate change, "we do." Scientists cite burning fossil fuels as the cause of more severe floods, droughts, heat waves and rising sea levels.

Researchers said that two of three sets of data used by scientists as evidence for global warming reached the five sigma level in 2005 and the third was reached in 2016.

According to Reuters, the last four years have been the hottest since records began in the 19th century.

Despite evidence that human activities are contributing to climate change, President Donald Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the conclusions and announced he was withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement. The agreement, signed by 195 nations, seeks "to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future."

Most recently, the administration announced it was creating a panel of scientists to assess the government's analysis of climate science. Possible panelists include scientists who have spoken publicly about their doubts about man-made climate change.
