Climate Change Facts & FAQs

1. What is nature of climate change?

Climate change is a change in the pattern of weather, and related changes in oceans, land surfaces and ice sheets, occurring over time scales of decades or longer. Weather is the state of the atmosphere, its temperature, humidity, wind, rainfall and so on—over hours to weeks.

2. What are the 5 effects of climate change?

  • rising maximum temperatures.
  • rising minimum temperatures.
  • rising sea levels.
  • higher ocean temperatures.
  • an increase in heavy precipitation (heavy rain and hail)
  • shrinking glaciers.
  • thawing permafrost.

3. How does climate change affect the natural environment?

Climate change is having serious impacts on the world’s water systems through more flooding and droughts. Warmer air can hold a higher water content, which makes rainfall patterns more extreme. Rivers and lakes supply drinking water for people and animals and are a vital resource for farming and industry.

4. How can we prevent climate change?

  • Speak up! 
  • Power your home with renewable energy. 
  • Weatherize, weatherize, weatherize. 
  • Invest in energy-efficient appliances. 
  • Reduce water waste. 
  • Actually eat the food you buy and make less of it meat. 
  • Buy better bulbs.
  • Pull the plug(s).

5. What are 3 facts about climate change?

  • Fact 1: Most of the increase in global temperatures since 1950 has been caused by human activity.
  • Fact 2: The average temperature of the Earth is determined by the greenhouse effect. 
  • Fact 3: Global temperatures have increased by about 1° Celsius in the past century.

6. How will climate change happen?

Humans are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth’s temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rainforests and farming livestock. This adds enormous amounts of greenhouse gases to those naturally occurring in the atmosphere, increasing the greenhouse effect and global warming.
