Climate includes patterns of temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind and seasons. "Climate change" affects more than just a change in the weather, it refers to seasonal changes over a long period of time. These climate patterns play a fundamental role in shaping natural ecosystems, and the human economies and cultures that depend on them.

Because so many systems are tied to climate, a change in climate can affect many related aspects of where and how people, plants and animals live, such as food production, availability and use of water, and health risks.

For example, a change in the usual timing of rains or temperatures can affect when plants bloom and set fruit, when insects hatch or when streams are their fullest. This can affect historically synchronized pollination of crops, food for migrating birds, spawning of fish, water supplies for drinking and irrigation, forest health, and more.

Define "global warming."
Weegy: Is the proccess in which temperatire of earth increases User: Describe briefly the theory behind man-caused global warming. Include a list of some of the gases that are believed to contribute to global warming. Weegy: Essentially, ask any climatologist and they will tell you that man's excessive waste and pollution is spewing millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases into our atmosphere. [ Definition of a greenhouse gases, according to wiki, are "gases in an atmosphere that absorb and emit radiation within the thermal infrared range." Basically, they absorb heat. H2O also counts as a greenhouse gas, apparently. The average temperature of the Earth's surface, is 15 degrees Celsius. The sun, on average, provides enough warmth to heat up the Earth's surface to 30 degrees Celsius. But nearly half of that heat is bounced back up into space. Greenhouse gases absorb the heat, and release some of it back onto Earth, increasing the surface temperature. There have always been greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, but with the start of the industrial period (1750s), the amount of it in our atmosphere has increased proportionally. Most common greenhouse gases: Water vapour, CO2, Nitrous oxide, ozone and methane (about a third of which is released from the belch of a cow). ] (More)
