Abstract. The evolution of modern scientific schools of global challenges research, in particular
global climate change, are considered in the article. Concept of "limits of growth",
"stabke development", "mitosis of biospheres" are considered as base scientific approaches of
comprehension and settlement of modern global challenges. An author agrees, that an anthro-

pogenic factor is one of key point of global climatic changes. There is shown in the article that
developments within the framework of concepts of "limits of growth", "stable development",
"mithosis of biospheres" and "controlled global development" stimulated experimental researches
and designs of future humanity, declared about global ecological challenges to humanity,
and put beginning to the programs of new humanism, criterion ‘‘to think globally". Also
showed that for positive changes and prevention of collapse it is nesessary the quality changes
of human thinking and joint efforts of all actor of international relations. An author shows that
from the one side, scientific researches towards to the decision of global climate change problem,
are the basis of political decisions of national governments and international organization,
and from other side, despite the plenty of scientific approaches and practical developments,
today there is no universal model of global climate change prevention, in particular, to the global
Key words: global challenges, global climate change, limits of growth, stable development,
mitosis of biosphere, controlled global development.
