ABSTRACT
This article discusses the influence of climate on the economy, human affairs, politics and even military relations among nations. Climate drives agricultural and forest production and it governs the way people live and work. Unexplained natural climatic variations have characterized all of human history and prehistory. Global climatic change stands alone among the world's environmental problems. Essential to a global consensus is a better understanding of the causes and consequences of climatic change, an understanding that can come only through a truly international multidisciplinary effort.
