Weather and climate are two similar but different things. Weather is the short term properties of the troposphere at a given place and time. We see everyday how weather works. Climate is the average long term weather of an area. The earth’s climate has warmed and cooled since lo
Weather affects our lives in many ways; for example, the type of clothing that we wear any given day depends largely on the weather. If it is cold we put on slacks, if it is hot we slip on shorts. The United States has to deal with the wildest weather in the world. Other countries deal with weather,
The government of Tuvalu, a Pacific Island nation, made a plea last summer for countries to take in Tuvalu evacuees, fearing a rising sea level will ultimately sink the country. New Zealand is considering the request. Lowland flooding and salt-water intrusion into drinking water are already happenin

CLIMATE CHANGE AND CARBON TRADING: NEW AVENUES FOR ACTUARIES
(Submitted By: Anupam Sharma, Deepa Gupta, Subhash Goyal, Swati Kwatra)
The increasing risk of Climate change can be measured by the fact that natural catastrophes in 2008 cost the global economy $225 billion, which
Weather is always changing. It is the state of the atmosphere at any given time and place. Although weather is erratic it is possible to come to a generalization of the variations of weather.
Climate is described as an aggregation of weather conditions. It is based on observations of
Fossil Fuel Consumption, CO2 and Its Impact on Global Climate
Background: At 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

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. It can be a change in the average weather or a change in the distribution of weather events around an average (for example, greater or fewer extr

THE IMORTANCE OF KNOWING HOW TO DRIVE IN SNOWY CONDITIONS
Driving safely on icy roads… (1) Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you. (2) Brake gently to avoid skidding. If

Climate is defined as the weather averaged over a long period of time.
The standard averaging period is 30 years but other periods may be used depending on the purpose. Climate also includes statistics other than
This paper looks at the controversial issue of climatic change. In particular, it develops the question of if and why earth's climate is changing? The roles of man, naturally occurring trends, and earth's cycles are considered, and an outlook for what can be expected in the near and
Climate change is a major issue affecting Australia. Over the years, Australia has been losing its water sources due to continual drought. Also, Australia has one of the highest per capita greenhouse emissions. “Australia has lengthened its lead as one of the world’s worst per capita greenhouse
In January the climate of London is low, it ranges between 0 and 5 degrees, whereas in July the temperature ranges between 15 and 20 degrees. The annual precipitation for London is between 500 and 1000 mm. Warm sea currents pass the west side of the United Kingdom warming that side a little more tha

Dear Sir Robert Green
In response to your request, I am sending the following report. It is basically an answer to your twofold question regarding 1) the definition and illustration about global warming and climate change and 2) the ways in which Green Industries are likely to be at risk or exposed
Climate change is the defining human development issue of our generation. The 2007 Human Development report acknowledges that climate change threatens to erode human freedoms and limit choice and the report further underscores that gender inequality intersects with climate risks and vulnerabilities.
Ethiopia is truly a land of contrasts and extremes. It is land of remote and wild
territories. It is one of the oldest nations on earth and has the second largest population in Africa. Ethiopia has been called the “cradle of humanity” and proudly claims to be the only African country never to
Climate change refers to change in average weather patterns and can be caused by both natural processes and human activities. In the past, the earth's climate has been affected by natural factors such as changes in solar output and the discharge of volcanic ash. In fact, the planet has been through

Michael Glantz, a social scientist of the US National Center for Atmospheric Research, says there is a critical distinction between climate and weather. Put simply, it is this: “Climate is what you expect. Weather is what you get.” These days, however, we don’t know what
Did you know that the earth’s climate has always been changing? It is a very serious rate of change that scientists are concerned about. Climate change is the long-term average of a regions weather events lumped together. For an example , it's possible that a winter day in Buffa
Weather can be defined as the state of the atmosphere including movements of energy like wind and precipitation. Climate is the generally prevailing weather patterns of a region. The climate of a region is made up of the different weather patterns. The weather patterns are usually repetitive accordi
Climate is the overall picture of weather during periods of seasons or years.
A season is a division of the year, marked by changes in weather, ecology, and hours of daylight. Seasons result from the yearly revolution of the Earth around the Sun and the tilt of the Earth's axis relative t
