The period 2000–2010 may be considered the decade when Earth system modeling came of age. Systematic ESM-based international scientific campaigns, such as the IPCC, are recognized as central elements both in scientific research to understand the workings of the climate system, as well as to provide reasoned and fact-based guidance to global governance systems, on how to deal with the planetary scale challenge of climate change.
