What is climate change?
Climate change refers to a large-scale, long-term shift in the planet's weather patterns and average temperatures.
Climate change is the long-term shift in average weather patterns across the world. Since the mid-1800s, humans have contributed to the release of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air. This causes global temperatures to rise, resulting in long-term changes to the climate.
