The author reflects on the people's reaction on climate change and global warming. He comments on the survey that shows that between a third and a half of British either don't think climate change is happening, or if it is, it will not affect the humans. He reveals that rainforests were being stripped and burnt down at a fast pace. He states that people should not be surprised if something is going on with the weather. He suggests reducing the carbon in the atmosphere.

    Global environmental change (GEC) is a significant concern. However, forecasting the outcomes of this change for species and ecosystems remains a major challenge. In particular, predicting specific changes in systems where initial conditions, instabilities, and model errors have large impacts on...
