Warren M. Washington was among the first to start developing climate models. These models have helped researchers around the world understand climate change, as they use fundamental laws of physics to predict what is going to happen to the atmosphere.

The climate models provide recommendations for political decisions, and Warren M. Washington has been a presidential advisor on climate issues under the Carter, Reagan, Clinton and Bush administrations. He has also received a number of awards and accolades for his work.

The Bolin Lecture on Climate Research is given annually in May to commemorate Professor Bert Bolin and his pioneering work for climate research at Stockholm University and internationally.
