Abstract

Climate change is often associated with the word ‘global’: climate change is a global phenomenon, climate change is a global threat. According to the majority of scientists, climate change is mainly caused by global warming, i.e., the increase of atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) mainly due to anthropogenic activities. Climate change is definitively one of the most serious environmental challenges of the Twenty-first century. This is confirmed not only by increasing scientific evidence, but also by the huge attention from the media as well as politicians, stakeholders and citizens.
