Tuduri B. F. Climate change, causes, development and consequences.
Alicante, 25/11/2009, Spain.
Currently, there is a strong scientific consensus that global climate will be significantly altered in the XXI century as a result of increased concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and chlorofluorocarbons. These gases are trapping a growing proportion of terrestrial infrared radiation and are expected to do global temperature increase between 1.5 and 4.5 ° C. In response to this, it is estimated that global precipitation patterns also are altered. Although there is general agreement on these findings, there is great uncertainty about the magnitudes and rates of these changes on regional scales.
