In the beginning there was the bang. An exploding star, or supernova, created a cloud of gas and dust from which the solar system formConfused by the idea of a snowball Earth or tropical Antarctica? Climate science can be baffling; here is a very short history of the Earth’s climate that explains how we got here.
Seen from space, our atmosphere is but a tiny layer of gas around a huge bulky planet. But it is this gaseous outer ring and its misleadingly called greenhouse effect that makes life on Earth possible – and that could destroy life as we know it.
Global Warming is defined as the increase of the average temperature on Earth. As the Earth is getting hotter, disasters like hurricanes, droughts and floods are getting more frequent.
