Abstract

Scientific consensus on the causes of climate change during the achanges. This uncertainty is illustrated by the debates about the magnitude of global warming during the past century. Whereas few debate that global warming has occurred during the past century, as the Earth emerged from the Little Ice Age, the magnitude of the warming and its possible causes are unclear. The prediction of future climate is fraught with even greater difficulties and uncertainties. Prediction of future climate change can be either empirical or based on numerical models. Each technique makes significant assumptions that cause the predictions to differ substantially for many scenarios of climate forcing. The historical record of climate and the prediction of future climate are discussed separately below.
