Given the problems climate change is causing it is no surprise that the need for climate change experts is growing. There are numerous subfields related to the climate that often work together as the issues lack simple answers.

Climate change experts are faced with questions from a cross section of areas since ecology is related to all human activity and to a lesser extend animal activity.

Litigation is a growing weapon in the fight against climate change. It often touches on health (human or animal) or damage from climate change-related natural disasters. During these cases climate change experts are brought in to help establish climate related impacts and costs.
