The article reports on computer created climate models which have been developed in the U.S., Japan, Australia and Europe to assess the impact that man has had and will have on global climactic changes and are used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to inform governments and citizens about the Earth's climactic status. Factors which limit the models' effectiveness and accuracy are discussed.
