“The climate today is rain,”said the news reporter. The rain is weather not climate. The climate is the average temperature throughout a year. Today a lady called Ceri who is a meteorologist and climatologist from the bureau of meteorology visited us. She talked to us about climate change. We were very lucky to have Ceri come in as we are learning about sustainability.

These are the things she confirmed for us as she knows the answers because she is an expert. Humans are the main cause of the co2 going and poking holes in the atmosphere. Other gases are contributing to climate change as well. Methane is a gase that comes from cows farting and that contributes to climate change. Since people keep farming cattle it means that there are more cows and that means more methane. Also CFC’s contribute but people don’t use them much anymore. But when they were used heaps they put a hole in the ozone. Global warming and climate change are real and are happening right now and there is evidence for it. She showed us lots of graphs and images showing evidence that climate change and global warming are happening. 97 out of 100 hundred scientists agree and have researched that climate change is happening now and is a problem because of what we are doing. Those 97 scientists have researched and have evidence and they all agree that it is happening.

Doing something so little can help a lot if we all do it. You can get solar panels, use wave power, wind turbines, turning of electronics when your not using them and not keeping heaters on if you don’t need them  lots.img_2037
