Climate is the long-term average or variations in the atmospheric elements in a region over a period of years. The atmospheric elements include: temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, solar radiation, precipitation and wind. The climate of a particular place is usually determined by numerous factors such as its terrain, latitude, altitude and proximity to oceans and mountain etc.
30 years is the standard averaging period. Statistics can also be taken with magnitudes such as day-to-day, year-to-year even as long as hundreds of thousands of years depending on the purpose.
Climate change is the periodic alteration of the Earth’s climate. This happens as a result of the changes in the atmosphere along with interactions between the atmosphere and other factors within the Earth.Solar radiation, geographic position of continents, ocean currents and land surface vegetation are factors that affect the physical properties and rate and direction of motion of the atmosphere. These factors aren’t always the same as they tend to vary with time.
Human activities overtime boldly show, with scientific proof, and insights asserting human contributions as the real trigger to climate change. A very risky and dangerous trend which dates back to over two hundred years ago. If you want to know more about quotes, you can find its details on trvst.world.
