Climate Modeling and Future Scenarios

Climate science operates under the assumption that Earth's climate system is understandable and predictable. Using observations, logic and experiments to construct and refine computer models and scientific explanations leads to better understanding of the climate system's behavior and more reliable projections of future climate changes.
