Anthropogenic climate change - a reason for concern since the 18th century and earlier
Summary: Since about 10 years the concept of anthropogenic climate change has left academic circles and become a major public concern. Some people consider "global warming" as the major environmental threat of the planet. Even though mostly considered a novel threat, a look into history tells us that it is not, at least not in European thinking. Climate change, due to natural and anthropogenic reasons has often been discussed from classical times to the time of renaissance. Environmental change including climate change was seen by some as a biblical mandate, to "complete the Creation". In line with this view, the prospect of climate change was considered as a promising challenge in more modern times. Only since the middle of the 20th century, anthropogenic climate change became a menacing prospect. The concept of anthropogenic climate change seems to be deeply embedded in popular thinking, at least in Europe, which resurfaces every now and then after scientific discoveries. As such climate change research is bound to be a post-normal science. Of course, the present threat may be much more real than any of the historical predecessors, which turned out to be overestimated.
Słowa kluczowe (w języku angielskim): climate change, anthropogenic and natural climate variability, perceptions of climate, history of perceptions.
