Abstract

What is climate change and what is its threat?
Climate change and global warming are the well-worn terms in the language of professionals in the climate change field, environmentalists, yet, unfortunately, not rooted in the consciousness of the population. Let's first determine what climate change is.
Definition of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC):
Climate change is a change caused directly or indirectly by a human being's activity, changing the global atmosphere composition, and which is complementary to the natural climate variability observed at comparable times.
Climate change’s main consequences are: changes in the global temperature and precipitation, increased risks of natural disasters, reduced water flow, melting glaciers, declining agricultural productivity, changing conditions in many sectors of economy and people’s living conditions. Water resources, biodiversity, forestry, land resources, agriculture, energy, tourism, and public health are the most vulnerable to climate change.
One of the main indicators used to assess the human influence on the climate change process is the carbon dioxide (C02) level
