Decades of climate change brings risks that people will accept higher temperatures, with more heat waves, downpours & draughts as ‘normal’ & complicate government plans to do more to cut greenhouse gas emissions. “Because the last three decades have seen such a significant rise in global & regional temperature, most people under the age of 30 have not lived in a world without global warming,” told Michel Jarraud, Secretary General of UN World Meteorological...

I recently decided to ask a couple of my fellow climate ambassadors why they really cared about the fight against climate change. Most answers were because they care about the environment or because they want to conserve the environment or even because it was the right thing to do. Even though all those reasons are okay I think now there's an even bigger reason to care - Human Rights. Climate change is now posing a threat to the fulfillment of human rights in many states a...

From the beginning of human history, we had to satisfy our energy needs for food, heat and movement by using our own muscle power and gathering or hunting naturally available plants, animals and wood. Each stage in the evolution of human society the development of farming, domestication of animals, harnessing of wind and water power increased the average per capita energy use, but it was the Industrial Revolution and the exploitation of fossil fuels which marked the transformation of societies i...


From my own observations, the majority of people in my country (Zambia) do not really connect with issues whose effects are not instant. Climate change is inclusive! For as long as climate change effects are not directly affecting them, a greater part of the Zambian population gives a blind eye and a deaf ear to issues of climate change. However, many others among them, feel connected to climate related issues once they directly affect them. A practical example that may have pushed people to po...

(Microsoft® Encarta® 2009). Like explained in the definition climate change brings about global warming, floods,...

Humans are your little kids mother, Being factors for you to bother. They cut trees & make you naked, By global warming earth is being baked. Mountains & oceans are your scenic view, Glacier outbursts & tsunamis are hurting you. Humans are being cruel, rude & selfish, Extincting are valuable plants,wildlife and fish. Teach humans mother or scold or slap, But let our offsprings play on your lap. As your kid & youth, promise I make, T...

Climate in a narrow sense is usually defined as the "average weather," or more rigorously, as the statistical description in terms of the mean and variability of relevant quantities over a period of time ranging from months to thousands of years. The classical period is 3 decades, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). These quantities are most often surface variables such as temperature, precipitation, and wind. Climate in a wider sense is the state, including...
