A great number of scientists that gather climate data, use computer models to simulate future climate, and not surprisingly, they do not agree on what is coming ahead.

Climate change is ceaseless, but when considering future climate it is impossible not to focus on anthropogenic causes of climate change. There are many vital elements whose preservation depends on stable climate patterns or at least progressive changes. Changes now are taking place too rapidly.

The Ozone Hole, the Greenhouse Effect and Air Pollution are three major factors which will determine future climate; in fact, they are conditioning present climate too.

The Ozone Hole

The Ozone Hole is a characteristic severe depletion of stratospheric ozone that occurs each spring over the Antarctic continent. Although it is known as the Ozone Hole, “hole” gives the [...]

The Greenhouse Effect

There are certain gases in the atmosphere, called greenhouse gases, which permit the income of solar radiation but restrict the outward flow of infrared radiation, storing the heat by absorbing [...]

Air pollution

Air pollution is defined as the presence of substances in the atmosphere, generally contaminants, particularly those that do not occur naturally (anthropogenic air pollution), that substantially alter or degrade the [...]

International initiatives

International Initiatives regarding Future Climate: The creation (in 1988) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is a proof of the international concern on future climate. The reports produced by this [...]
