Climate change is one of the main challenges to be faced by human beings in this century XXI. The main difficulty to tackle this challenge is that it is a very complex problem, i.e., there are many elements involved and interconnected among them. For this reason, it is practically impossible to take into account all these elements. Thus, we can only consider a "few key factors" in our studies. This "simplified" version of our environmental introduces a large amount of uncertainty. On the other hand, there are many process and phenomena (physical, chemical, biological, socio-economical, etc.) that are not well understood, which also introduces uncertainty. The quantification -or at least to be aware- of this uncertainty plays an important role in the climate change studies. Therefore, pressing need to improve our understanding of these uncertainties in order to face the consequences of climate change in our society.
