About This Section of IS1115
Climate change is the catch-all term for significant long-term changes in the expected patterns for average weather in a region. Scientists do not dispute the fact that the climate change currently occurring on Earth is a rise in average temperatures. The scientific debate, if there is any, concerns the cause of this rise but much evidence indicates that the largest cause is human activity. In this class, we will learn about the causes and effects of our current climate change and undertake projects to impact this crisis.
