    Samantha Ballard 470 Climate Project Anthropogenic Emissions in the Ocean Anthropogenic emissions affect the atmosphere, ocean, biosphere and cryosphere. These components of the climate system create interactions between each other ranging from a synoptic to microscale including everything in between. Ever since the industrial revolution, human-produced emissions have been changing the world around us. The phenomenon of having greenhouse gases and aerosols in the atmosphere is natural and necessary

    English 1A December 1, 2017 Climate Change Introduction As climate change and global warming remain some of the most debated topics in the contemporary social and political spheres, there is need to establish the leading causes of these global phenomena. To date, climate change scientists have differed on the causes of climate change, with one faction holding that climate change is natural and another one arguing that human activities are the primary drivers of climate change (Crowley, 286).

Climate change affects the social and environmental determinants of health clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food and secure shelter. Over the last 50 years, Human activities –particularly the burning fossil fuels have released sufficient quantities of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases to trap additional heat in the lower atmosphere and affect the global climate

    The Sahel is an area in Africa which suffers droughts and it is hard to grow crops due to the hot climate. Seasonal shifts there lead to decreased rainfall and the drought tolerant maize helps farmers adapt to climate change. The Sahel is the transition zone in Africa. It has a great typical ecoclimatic and biogeographic reflection of a semi-arid climate. It is located between the Sahara to the north and the Sudanian Savanna which was historically called the Sudan region to the south.[1] The Sahel

    observations presented in the paper it is clear that there is direct/indirect link between extreme events and climate change and the similar observation was found by Seneviratne et al., 2012) supporting that Climate change has resulted in changes in the occurrence of extreme events. Moreover, Out of 24 extreme events analyzed in this paper, 12 showed direct or indirect links to anthropogenic climate change and some could not be explained. Once a change has been detected it is important to attribute that

    evidence from studies based on climate archives that the Earth’s climate about 10 000 years ago was very different from the present climate; it has changed a lot since the last glacial period which ended about 10 000- 12 000 years ago (Chappell, 1998). Hence, about 10 000 years ago the Earth was buried under ice sheets and it was much cooler than present temperatures (see Figure 1, Appendix) (Chappell, 1998). The Earth that has been cycling between cold and warm climates for ages and is currently in

    The earth 's climate is generally defined as the average weather over a long period of time. A place or region 's climate is determined by both natural and anthropogenic (human-made) factors. As the rapid increase of population of the world the energy requirements of people are also increasing gradually. In the most part of the earth naturally and sometimes people burnt fossil fuels such as (coal, oil, green houses gasses) to meet their energy needs which release carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, water

    Climate change is defined by the Intergovernmental panel on climate change ( IPCC) as a variation in the mean state of climate persisting for an extended period of time typically decades or longer while the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) defines climate change as a change in the climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activities that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed

    Climate is the statistics of weather, usually over a 30-year interval. It is measured by assessing the patterns 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 differs from weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables of a given region. A regions climate is generated by the climate system, which has five components:

    Climate is part of our everyday lives. What we experience is the global climate system. According to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, climate change is, "a change of climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity alters the composition of the atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods." (Allen, Seaman & Delascio, 2009) Australia’s climate has warmed a lot more since 1910 by the average of
