Climate Change
Climate Change is a volatile subject. The Earth’s climate undoubtedly goes through cycles, alternating between glacial and interglacial periods, but could these transitions be triggered or interrupted by human activity? Could ozone depletion or the accumulation of greenhouse gases truly have a serious impact on the Earth’s climate? In what ways do climates change over time? How would climate change affect the livability of our environment? These articles discuss the pressing questions surrounding the issue of Climate Change from a variety of perspectives.
