Climatic properties of the world have been changing through time. However, changed or unchanged, climatic properties influence the distribution of some plants. In this paper, we used three different prediction models of climate changes: global model (CMIP5 30-seconds), for the time period extending to 2100, in the territory of Europe. Furthermore, we embedded four possibilities of climate changes within this prediction model. Slight, when there are no climate change effects and temperatures increase for 0.50C. Moderate temperatures’ increase would be up for 2.00C, whereas severe temperatures’ increase would be up for 5.00C. Incredibly, temperatures will increase to the maximum resistance of predicted crops.  With the help of GIS multi-criteria analysis and agroclimatological modeling, we showed models for corn in case of temperatures’ increase in the territory of Europe. The mapping of this hazard could be very important for climatology, plants sciences, agronomy, geography and economy.
