Climate Change

Climate change is the global variation of the Earth’s climate. This variation is due to natural causes and the action of man and occurs on all climatic parameters: temperature, precipitation, cloudiness, etc., at very different time scales.

What is the difference between Climate Change and Global Warming?

Global warming is the cause of climate change, that is, the increase in the planet’s temperature caused by emissions into the atmosphere of greenhouse gases derived from human activity, are causing variations in the climate that naturally they would not occur.

This has already happened on Earth on other occasions in a natural way, but the truth is that these cycles had always been much slower, needing millions of years, while now and as a consequence of human activity, we are reaching levels that in other times brought with them extinctions in barely two hundred years.

What are the causes and consequences of climate change?

The main cause of the climatic effect is global warming, which has multiple negative consequences on physical, biological and human systems, among other effects. Global warming occurs when human activity increases greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere and the atmosphere retains more heat than necessary, causing the average temperature of the planet to rise.
