What is climate change?
What is climate change??
Climate is the average weather in a place over many years.

Climate change is a shift in these conditions.

The mother Earth is now in a period of rapid climate change, with global temperatures rising(Bockris, 2010).
Throughout our planet's history, global temperatures have risen and fallen naturally.

But it has never become too hot or too cold for life to exist.

That's because Earth is wrapped in its own protective blanket of air, a mixture of gases called the atmosphere.
Climate has changed throughout Earth's long history, but this time it's different.

Human activity is causing worldwide temperatures to rise higher and faster than any time we know of in the past(Bockris, 2018).

The choices we make today could reduce the chances of the serious consequences.

But it will take everyone working together around the world.
Global warming and greenhouse effect
Global warming: The increase in Earth’s average temperature over a long period of time(Springer, 2021).

The greenhouse effect works much the same way on Earth. Gases in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, trap heat similar to the glass roof of a greenhouse(Sebo, 2021). These heat-trapping gases are called greenhouse gases.
