What is climate change?

Climate change is a long-term shift in weather, some stuff that can cause climate change is temperature, precipitation, winds, and more. Climate change can involve both changes in conditions and changes in variability, including, for example, natural disaster.

Climate change is one of the biggest conditions the biggest problem facing our planet. We know that human activity is causing the earth to warm, but we also know that we can solve this problem.

What are the major causes of climate change?

All of the stuff in or on our planet affects the climate in major ways; one of the biggest stuff affecting climate change is humans. Humans are a major effect to the climate such as the burning of fossil fuels and the conversion of land for forestry and agriculture. The amount of incoming energy and the amount of outgoing energy and can have both warming and cooling effects on the climate. The dominant product of fossil fuel combustion is carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. The overall effect of humans affecting the climate is carbon dioxide and enhanced by emissions of other greenhouse gases. The build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has led to an enhancement of the natural greenhouse effect.
Humans aren’t the only ones affecting the earth’s climate but the natural effect on earth is also a big play in the climate change, such as changes in volcanic activity, solar output, and the Earth's orbit around the Sun.

What are some major consequences of climate change?
Climate change has a major effect some good and some are bad but consequences. The potential future effects of global climate change include more frequent wildfires, longer periods of drought in some places of the world and an increase in the number of droughts and the duration, and will also have an effect on some intense tropical storms. Global climate change has already had effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk ice on rivers and lakes are breaking up earlier, also plant and animal ranges have disturbed
