The article considers a model of the climate, including interacting blocks of the ocean, atmosphere and sea ice. The model describes the deep thermohaline circulation of the oceans and the main characteristics of the other elements of the climate system. The paper presents model operating in the mode of the seasonal variations of solar radiation. The changes in atmospheric temperature in XXI century for different scenarios of CO2 concentration variations are calculated.
