Paleoclimate records teach us that climate change is actually not a new challenge: local and global climate have been changing during the whole history of our planet. What is new is our growing awareness of the impacts such changes have had on the evolution of mankind and are having on modern society, as well as the vertiginous increase in the anthropogenic influence upon climate. Unrestrained demographic expansion and technological development – which have previously been our most effective strategies of adaptation to a changing environment – now render us victims of our own attempts to improve living conditions in a densely populated world. It is therefore essential to rethink economic growth and technological development in order to turn them truly sustainable. To achieve this, the first challenge is to obtain a reliable picture of the ongoing climatic changes and their impacts on local and global scales, followed by a precise assessment of the anthropogenic contributions to such changes. These investigations provide the essential basis for the establishment of more efficient environmental policies and new strategies for sustainable development.
