Climate Change for Sustainable Development

I learned that climate change is the variation in the Earth's global climate or in regional climates over time. It describes changes in the variability or average state of the atmosphere over time scales ranging from decades to millions of years and these changes can be caused by processes internal to the Earth, external forces, and human activities. The atmosphere, composed of a layer of gases surrounding the plant and retained by the Earth’s gravity, is the earth’s blanket. Climate is more than just wether-wether.” Understanding the hazards will help a person in knowing the climate in an area and possible impacts of changes. I also knew how ozone affects climate and vice-versa. Temperature, humidity, winds, and the presence of other chemicals in the atmosphere influence ozone formation, and the presence of ozone, in turn, affects those atmospheric constituents. Because of climate change, disasters continued to happen. But we can actually do something for this. Proper solid, water, and animal waste management, use of renewable energy sources, reforestation, afforestation, etc. But before all those things, we should first develop awareness and discipline in ourselves.

I watched a video presentation about “Climate Change: Sustaining Our World in a Changing Planet

I participated in the online discussion by expressing thoughts and ideas about climate change in my blog and by sharing what I learned on the video presentation that I watched.
