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

    seen since the mid-1800’s are outside the bounds of natural variability inherent in the earth’s climate system. 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. If one takes a hard look at the science involved‚ their assertions appear to be groundless

    NOTES: The word is divided into 6 climate zones. These zones depend on several factors. The first is temperature; if a country lies near the equator it tends to be hot; but if it’s near the poles it tends to be colder. A country can also have a cold climate if it’s very mountainous with most of its land sitting well above sea level. Wind direction can also influence climate. If winds are being blow from a hot area they will raise temperatures‚ the opposite is also true. If winds have been blown

    Is climate change a ‘ticking time bomb’? It is no secret to anyone that our planet is warming but what many of us don’t know is why and perhaps more importantly the consequences it poses. The roots of our problem lie in the form of a simple molecular compound‚ carbon dioxide. In 1870 the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere was 290 parts per million. 144 years later‚ to this very date‚ it has risen to over 400 parts per million. But why does this cause a problem you may ask‚ well it is
