The global climate has been changing rapidly since the 1950s, and many of these changes appear to be sharp, irreversible deviations from whatever we know of the past. In technical terms, climate change refers to the change in the average weather condition over a relatively longer period of time, i.e., longer than 10 years. As is well known, climate change has, to a large extent, been caused by increased concentrations of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, which are released into the atmosphere mainly by such anthropogenic activities as the burning of fossil fuels and intensive cultivation of land. There is good reason to believe that climate change has already set in motion far-reaching chains of consequences, not only for life on land but also in, and bordering, the oceans.
