Their diversion can be viewed under The equatorial zones are distinguished by a hot and wet climate all year round‚ yet the temperate zones are typified by less stable areas. The temperature difference between the equator and the poles generates a circulation system which redistributes heat from low latitudes to high latitudes. The rising and

    Climate is a measure of the average pattern of variation in temperature‚ humidity‚ atmospheric pressure‚ wind‚ precipitation‚ atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time. Climate is different from weather‚ in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region. A region’s climate is generated by the climate system‚ which has five components: atmosphere‚ hydrosphere‚ cryosphere‚ land surface‚ and biosphere

    Climate Change in Developing Countries Over the past decade‚ human activity has started to cause an increased rate of negative change to our climate. Although climate change is a worldwide problem no one will feel the impact as harshly as third world countries such many parts of Africa‚ Asia‚ and South America. These countries are estimated to be hit the hardest by climate change even though they did the least to cause it. Developing countries have been struggling over the past few years on their

Thus‚ any impartial jury should not come back with a “guilty” verdict convicting humanity of forcing recent climatological changes. Even the most ardent supporters of global warming will not argue this point. Instead‚ they argue that humans are only partially responsible for the observed climate change.
