DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLIMATE AND WEATHER

Weather reflects short-term conditions of the atmosphere while climate is the average daily weather for an extended period of time at a certain location. ... Weather can change from minute-to-minute, hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and season-to-season. Climate, is the average of weather over time and space.

EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

As the earth's atmosphere heats up, it collects, retains, and drops more water, changing weather patterns and making wet areas wetter and dry areas drier. Higher temperatures worsen and increase the frequency of many types of disasters, including storms, floods, heat waves, and droughts.

CAUSES AND EFFECT OF CLIMATE CHANGE

 The main cause of climate change is burning fossil fuels such as oil, gas, and coal. When burnt, fossil fuels release carbon dioxide into the air, causing the planet to heat up.

Warmer temperatures over time are changing weather patterns and disrupting the usual balance of nature. This poses many risks to human beings and all other forms of life on Earth.

DEFORESTATION

Deforestation refers to the decrease in forest areas across the world that are lost for other uses such as agricultural croplands, urbanization, or mining activities. Greatly accelerated by human activities since 1960, deforestation has been negatively affecting natural ecosystems, biodiversity, and the climate.

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTION FOR CLIMATE CHANGE

Cutting carbon is the only long-term solution for avoiding climate impacts. In the short-term, we need to adapt. That means everything from discouraging development in high-risk areas, to planning for water scarcity, to building more resilient cities and communities.

PLANTATION

Everyone knows that trees are the natural sources of Oxygen as they inhale Carbon dioxide and exhale Oxygen and without it the survival of human beings is not possible on earth. They filter harmful pollutants from the atmosphere and provide us with fresher and cleaner air to breath. Air pollution can be controlled, if we plant more and more trees.
