Global Climate and Atmospheric change LIB 315 The Environment and the Human Spirit

Climate change is a significant matter and variations in the weather can occur over long periods like millions of years or short periods like decades. The variation can include a change in normal weather conditions. Observations and supposed models are used by scientists to comprehend past climates and predict future ones. Elements that contribute to shaping climate are called climate forcing. These factors include the difference in solar radiation, difference in the Earth's course, mountain-building and continental drift and changes in greenhouse gas attentiveness. A variety of climate change feedback exists which either strengthen or decrease the first forcing. Some features of climate like oceans and ice caps take more time to respond to climate forcing while other take much less time.
