Climate Change[edit]

Climate change refers to significant and lasting changes in the statistical distribution of weather conditions over periods of time. Climate change can be caused by oceanic or biotic processes, variations in the solar system, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions, as well as human-induced alterations of the natural world. These human-induced alterations are considered the current cause of global warming. Climate change is often used to describe human-specific impacts, but in fact it refers to a lot more than just human- induced alterations to climatic processes and also includes natural factors that affect these processes.
