Climate Change

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather within the context of longer-term average conditions, defined by the World Meteorological Organization as a 30 years or longer term. Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have been identified as primary causes of ongoing climate change, often referred to as global warming. There is no general agreement in scientific, media or policy documents as to the precise term to be used to refer to anthropogenic forced change; either “global warming” or “climate change” may be used.

“Climate change is real and must be of great concern to all of the world’s citizens to insure that we have a future on this planet. But the sky is not falling yet and there is time to address what effect humans can make to slow climate change. Climate change will continue in some form despite man’s efforts. Man can help slow the impact of the change though, but it will still happen. Long meetings, expensive conventions, and political debate will not be very effective. It will take world leaders at the same table to make commitments to change the way their country addresses this serious issue.”
