Occasionally, that change is abrupt and we use the term abrupt climate change. Most often, the change is more gradual and we see a trend of changing climate conditions that goes continuously in one general direction - warm to cold, wet to dry, etc. But, as we get closer to the present with better understanding of the regional/global pattern of climate change and better understanding of the
