Climate Change

Klimawandel, auch Klimaänderung, Klimawechsel oder Klimaschwankung, bezeichnet die Veränderung von Klima auf der Erde und erdähnlichen Planeten, unabhängig von Ursachen, ob natürliche oder menschliche. Die gegenwärtige, vor allem durch den Menschen verursachte globale Erwärmung ist ein Beispiel für einen Klimawandel. Ein Klimawandel kann eine Abkühlung oder Erwärmung über unterschiedliche Zeiträume bezeichnen. Der Begriff Klimaschwankung bezeichnet gelegentlich speziell Klimaänderungen, die nur wenige Dekaden andauern oder zyklischer Natur sind.
