Actually, you only need to alter the statistics for that particular column, not for all columns in the db.

What you want to do is:

ALTER TABLE "ClimateChangeModel40"
        ALTER COLUMN <whatever the column is>
        SET STATISTICS 100;
VACUUM ANALYZE "ClimateChangeModel40";

The column is just the column that you have the "IX_ClimateId" index on,
I don't know which one that is.

The statistics value ranges from 1 - 1000, the default being 10, and for
indexed columns you are likely to want somewhere between 100-200.

If you set it to 100 and the planner is still mis-estimating the number
of rows, try 200, etc.

The reason to keep the number low is because with a high number the
planner has to spend more time planning. But especially for queries like
this one, you'd rather the query planner spent a little bit more time
planning, and got the right plan.
