Climate change is defined as:
a change in global or regional climate patterns, in particular, a change apparent from the mid to late 20th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.
Preparing for a Changing Climate states that the rising levels of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere will continue to increase the temperature of Earth which will cause some problems such as:
- rising sea levels
- snow and ice melting at the polar caps
- heat waves leading to fires and drought
- severe storms leading to mass rainfall and floods
It is our belief at Teach Climate Change that if we do not do something about the current state of our climate that it will lead to even more devastation to not only our environment but to also overall human health. Which is why we must TEACH climate change and global warming and march for science!
We are here to teach you the complex science behind climate change but also show you tips and tricks on how to reduce your carbon impact on the environment as well so we can have a healthier planet.
