Slide 32: Conclusions?
The international scientific community is now in firm agreement that global climate change is an established fact.
To some extent our understanding of future trends in the climate is dependent on the accuracy of the model we use to describe the processes, as will be described in the next chapter.
However, international political responses to this fact have been considerably less than spectacular at this juncture.
Given that climate change is inevitable, it is incumbent upon conservation planners to integrate the current extent of knowledge into their planning ventures wherever possible.
