ABSTRACT
The purpose of this research is to put forward the changes of climate which related to the results of human and natural resources effects on global and Turkey scale in the comparable time. The climate change should not be only perceived as temperature change. In addition to temperature, all of the deflections which appear in elements of climate like wind, moisture, pressure can be defined as the climate change. To realize this purpose, first of all, the main factors of climate change; changes incoming solar radiation, changes in the composition of the atmosphere, change in the earth's surface will be explained. Furthermore, the emission proportion of greenhouse gases in the chosen countries the precautions for this and the international meetings will be mentioned. Moreover, the developmental process of works related to the climate change in Turkey, the energy resources of Turkey and the gases released in the atmosphere will be emphasized in addition to the probable results of the climate changes.
