IS CLIMATE CHANGE RESPONSIBLE FOR IRREGULAR WEATHER PATTERNS?
"Earth has always had natural cycles of warming and cooling, but not like we’re seeing now"
Earth has always had natural cycles of warming and cooling, but not like we’re seeing now.
According to warm heart worldwide Climate change refers to significant, long-term changes in the global climate.
There has always been extreme weather, but human-caused global warming can increase extreme weather’s frequency and severity.
For example, research shows that human activities such as burning fossil fuels are unequivocally warming the planet, and we know from basic physics that warm air can hold more moisture.
As the world has warmed, that warming has triggered many other changes to the Earth’s climate.
Changes in extreme weather and climate events, such as heatwaves and droughts, are the primary way that most people experience climate change.
Today, attribution studies can show whether extreme events were affected by climate change and whether they can be explained by natural variability alone.
The global climate is the connected system of the sun, earth and oceans, wind, rain and snow, forests, deserts and savannas, and everything people do, too.
From season to season and year to year, weather events that were once rare occurrences are now increasingly commonplace.
Human activity is causing rapid change to our global climate that is contributing to extreme weather conditions.
350.org/science explained that Before the 18th century when humans in the industrial west began to burn coal, oil, and gas, our atmosphere typically contained about 280 parts per million of carbon dioxide. Those are the conditions “on which civilization developed and to which life on earth is adapted.”
An overwhelming 97% of scientists agree that climate change is being caused by human greenhouse gas emissions.
