Climate Change- the basics- WIKI

 

We still do not know exactly how sensitive the Earth's climate is to these human activities, but we know they make our planet warmer. In this text you can learn how our actions affect the climate of our planet, how the climate may change in the future and what consequences this could have for the lives of people, animals and plants. You can also learn what we can do to slow down or stop climate change.

 

 


The text is divided into three units, and each unit is divided into two sections: a Basics-section and a Read more-section. Both sections have a worksheet.

How are people changing the climate?

Basics

Greenhouse gases emitted from cars, planes, factories and power plants are changing the Earth's climate, and contributing to global warming.

In the text in the Basics-section you will find links to the Read more-section. Follow those links if you want to explore an issue in more depth (rather than reading the Read more-section from beginning to end).
