  • Weather
    By: Ann Wolf

  • What is Climate?  What is weather? 
    Weather is the condition of the atmosphere such as precipitation, temperature
    Climate is the average weather over a long period of time
  • What are the similarities and differences between climate and weather?
    Both weather and climate happens in the same place, and they both affect our way of life. But weather is just what happens on one day, while climate is the average weather an area has.
  • How has the change in climate created a change in weather patterns?
    The climate change has created:
    Stronger and more frequent hurricanes
    More wildfires
    More droughts
    Higher risk of floods
    Greater odds of deadly heat waves
  • How is the global climate changing?  Is it getting warmer or colder?  How do we know?
    The global climate is getting warmer because of the greenhouse effect.
    We know because the winter didn’t get as much snow in some places
    The extreme weather we have been getting this year is another example of climate change
  • Figure out if the overall temperature and precipitation has changed in the past 150 years:  polar, rain forest
    Rainforest:
    Deforestation causes almost 20% of greenhouse gas emissions
    Polar:
    Temperatures have risen in the past 100 years
    Polar ice is melting
  • Is carbon related to climate change?  Is water vapor related to climate change?  How?
    Both water vapor and carbon are related to climate change because they both are green house gasses that cause the greenhouse effect.
  • What could be causing global climate change?
    Global climate change can be caused by many factors, including:
    Cars
    Pollution
    Burning coal to make electricity
  • How does the changing climate impact biota: turtles, polar bears, penguins, migratory birds, humans, food production? 
    The changing climate affects biota because it disrupts their life cycles and the climate they live in. In the polar bear and penguin’s case, it is causing their home to disappear.
  • How does the changing climate impact abiotic: weather patterns, jet stream, hurricanes, precipitation levels, human events (e.g. Winter Olympics)?
    The changing climate affects human events because we have no control over it. During the winter Olympics, because Vancouver didn’t have snow, they had to ship snow in from a different place that had snow.
  • Global cooling is what happens when the climate cools down, when the earth is heading towards another ice age
    What is Global cooling?
