Climate Change - The way I understand it


Climate is the 'weather settings' of a region for a interval of time. It may be the the variation in temperature during some specific months, irregularity and variation of rainfall during certain number of months, the appearance of health related issues in recent times and so on.

For example, my home town is Kolkata (West Bengal, India). During the month of February, people naturally expect mild receding winter and prefer to use garments and other clothings to keep them warm. But for the past few years, it is literally hot and people are switching on air conditioning system in their rooms full time. This is an example of climate change.

In Calicut (Kerala, India), where I work, it rains during the months from June to September. But we are experiencing summer and low rain fall for the past few years. This is due to 'Climate change'.
