Global climate change is an effect of global warming (IPCC, 1991; Soemarwoto, 1992; IEA, 2014). The rising amount of solar energy trapped in the Earth’s atmosphere leads to changes in global climate (Figure), like (1) rising evaporation, (2) warming/rising sea/ocean water temperature, (3) changes in the conditions of plants and animals and (4) melting snow and ice.

Combinations of the above-mentioned changes leads to various forms of global climate changes, such as the increasing rainfall, storms, droughts and fires, as well as climate anomalies. Different forms of climate change occur and are felt in each country of the world. Therefore, global climate change is not caused by oil palm plantations in Indonesia.

Perubahan iklim global merupakan akibat dari pemanasan global (IPCC, 1991; Soemarwoto, 1992; IEA, 2014). Dengan makin besarnya energi matahari yang terperangkap dalam atmosfer bumi menyebabkan terjadinya perubahan dalam iklim global (Gambar) antara lain: (1) Evaporasi meningkat, (2) Pemanasan/kenaikan temperatur air laut/samudera, (3) Perubahan kondisi tanaman dan hewan, (4) Salju dan es meleleh.

Kombinasi perubahan keempat hal di atas mengakibatkan terjadinya berbagai bentuk perubahan bentuk iklim global seperti curah hujan meningkat, badai, kekeringan dan kebakaran serta anomali iklim. Bentuk-bentuk perubahan iklim tersebut terjadi dan dirasakan di setiap negara-negara dunia. Dengan demikian perubahan iklim global bukan disebabkan perkebunan kelapa sawit di Indonesia.
