HOW TO MINIMIZE CLIMATE CHANGE!
INTRODUCTION
Weather is local and temporary. Weather happens at a particular time and place. "Climate" describes conditions over the long term and over an entire region. Climate is the big picture. Everything that happens here affects something over there.Nothing changes in one place without changing something in another place. The overall effect gives us our global climate.
CLIMATE CHANGE
A change in global or regional climate patterns, and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels.
