This article presents an overview of the climate change, climate modeling, and future climate predictions. Of the subsequent sections, the first section discusses the concept of natural and anthropogenic climate change and the mechanisms causing climate variability. The second section, based on the results of paleoclimatological studies and observational data, presents an overview of past climate changes. The third section presents the scientific basis and the existing types of climate models. The fourth section discusses the prediction of future climate change based on the simulations performed with climate models and potential impact of global warming on natural ecosystem and human life.
