Latitude are imaginary horizontal lines going north and south, the middle is the equator
latitude/longitude affect different climate areas called climate zones
Latitude lines determine some areas climate/weather
How does climate change affect our lives?
In warm weather people don't wear layers, they dress in t-shirts and shorts
People prefer to go outside in the summer and have fun
Going swimming or play outdoor sports
Global warming and Climate Change
Global warming is causing rapid Climate change to occur
More extreme weather conditions have been coming
Global warming causing some regions to increase there usual temperatures.
Causes of Climate Change
The main causes for climate change are variations in solar radiation, deviations in the Earth's orbit, mountain-building and continental drift, and changes in greenhouse gas concentrations. Some parts of the climate system, such as the oceans and ice caps, respond slowly to climate forcing because of their mass. Therefore, the climate system would take centuries to respond to new external forcing.
Distance from the equator
Distance from the equator shows makes it colder, the closer you are too the equator the better
The equator is the middle line of latitude
Pros of Climate Change The Longer Growing Season
If the climate is warm it means there's a longer growing season. It can help the earth as our population grows, so more than one plants and
vegetables can be possible in one longer season.
More Healthier Plants
If the Ozone Layer get thinner then there will be more carbon dioxide. Since plants breath in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. It will help the plants to be more healthier and humans.
The Warmer Weather
If warmer weather are longer. Then less fuel will be used to heat to heat homes. So if less fuel is used, it means less harmful chemicals in the atmosphere.
Cons of Climate Change Plants ruined by high temperatures.
Some plants can be damaged from higher temperatures. Many kinds of plant need cold temperatures for a while to be able to grow.
Since some vegetables or plants need a little bit of lower temperatures.
Damaged Ozone Layer
If there is too much carbon dioxide then the ozone layer is ruined. The ozone layer protects us from dangerous solar radiation. Humans need the sunlight but too much can cause skin cancer.
As climate change happens so does warmer climates. This will cause the polar ice caps to melt. More of the earth will be covered in water. Which is a really bad issue for our growing population.
