Slide 32: Conclusion
General circulation models are the best tool we have for determining the range and extent of climate change, as well as for working out what is likely to happen in the future.
All current models agree that current climatic change is a result of anthropogenic influences.
Future climate change will depend on the current human response to that knowledge.
Although GCM outputs are very large scale, they can be refined and downscaled to assist in prediction for smaller areas.
Thus, the outputs from GCMs can be exceedingly useful in terms of conservation planning for responses to climate change.
