Climate Change in my sense


Our world is changing day by day. Climate change is one of them. Nowadays this has become the burning topic.

First of all, what is climate? Climate is the average of weather condition in a particular area. For example in the summer season we usually expect more heat, why? Because from the past record we see that in summer seasons there was more heat so in average we can say that in summer the temperature will be high.

Secondly, what is climate change? In general, climate change is the change in climatic pattern. For example, in winter season, usually the temperature is low but if the temperature does not fall like the previous years then it is climate change.

Now, if the climate is changing and it's impacting on us severely then we should know the reasons affecting climate change . The main reason of climate change is greenhouse gasses. The main greenhouse gases include water vapor, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Methane, Nitrous oxide, Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). The other reasons are Aerosols in the Atmosphere, Land use change, Deforestation, Burning of coal or fuels.

So, if the climate is changing, how we know that the climate is changing? Well, the answer is by seeing it's impacts. Now let's discuss about some impacts of climate change. First of all, greenhouse effect. Day by day the temperature of the earth is rising because the heat is getting trapped due to greenhouse effect. Secondly, rise of the sea level. As the temperature is rising the ices of the polar region is melting so the sea level is rising. Thirdly, the plant and animal both world's life is changing. For example, the polar bear are facing food and shelter crisis due to climate change. Finally, more disasters are hitting.
