By simple definition, Climate Change is a long-term change in the average weather patterns of the Earth’s local, regional, and global climates. Climate Change, which includes global warming, refers to the Earth’s rising surface temperature and the effects of warming that are happening to our planet.

Observable impacts of Climate Change include sea level rise, ocean acidification, rising sea temperatures and melting polar ice, dramatic fluctuations in local weather patterns, and increased natural disasters.
