Climate change is basically all about how greenhouse gases are trapping heat in the lower atmosphere. It can cause many tragedies to the world around us. In some areas, it’s okay that it’s warming up but in other areas it can cause awful things to happen in people’s lives and the climate in general. It’s happening because well, some people believe that humans are causing it based on burning fossil fuels but others believe that it’s just been happening for a while now because of the greenhouse gases. We researched a lot about climate change by watching videos and reading articles. NOVA had a whole documentary about climate change called “Decoding the weather machine.” We learned a lot about climate change in that video including the effects of climate change.
Climate change has a lot of effects in different ways. Some people think that the big idea is that the Earth is warming, which it is, but it does have a lot more meaning than that. Animals are dying, people are dying because of disasters that can be caused by climate change. Think about it, would you want to live in a world where everywhere you turn there’s a new disaster?
