Article "Climate, climate change" now available in the Compendium
Our "Compendium of Urban and Regional Development" has been extended with the article "Climate, Climate Change", authored by Manfred Stock.
The global climate is currently changing, primarily due to anthropogenic greenhouse gases. There are many other factors which play a role in climate, starting with the sun’s radiation. Climate during the past ice ages was highly variable; by contrast it has been relatively stable over the past 10,000 years. Different scenarios and climate models are used to determine how climate might develop in the future.
