#1 Climate Science Monday: What is Climate Science?
Climate science or climatology is a scientific study of climate. How does it relates to the climate change people keep talking about? Let's find out together!
Understanding Patterns of Climate
The study of climate uses climate models to study the dynamics of the weather and climate system to create projections of future climate. These models uses quantitative methods to simulate interactions of the atmosphere, oceans, land surface and ice. One of the most popular study is the increase of atmospheric temperature due to the radiative effects of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide.
Climate Change vs Humans
Global warming resulted by excessive greenhouse gases in our atmosphere causes extreme weather patterns that can be felt worldwide. Many have lost their lives and more have lost their livelihoods as a result. Hence, to understand what it takes to create a more sustainable future, we must all understaing climate science. We as a species needs to know how our action contributes to the changing climate. It is never too late to be conscious about how one person can change the world... And that person can be you!
