Climate Change


To me, Climate is the average weather in a particular region over a long period of time, usually thirty (30) years. Climate change is also a gradual process lasting for a long period of time. I will regard climate change as a change in climate patterns, majorly due to human activities modifying the environment and attributed largely to the increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.
Recently, climate change is also known as global warming and this refers to the rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. This increase in the average surface temperature is majorly due to the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air from combustion and fossil fuels . These released gases trap heat within the atmosphere, which have numerous effects on our ecosystems resulting in rising sea levels, severe weather events, and droughts.
