Climate Definitions

Climate Change

Climate modification describes long-lasting shifts and changes in Earth’s environment patterns, including variations in temperature level, rainfall, wind patterns, and more. This is a direct outcome of extreme greenhouse gas emissions, consisting of co2 (CO2) and methane (CH4), and the exploitation of natural deposits for capitalistic gain. The effects of environment modification are significant– increasing water level, more extreme and regular severe weather condition occasions, shifts in communities and biodiversity, disturbances in farming performance and endangered human health. The very first and worst effects of environment modification disproportionately impact marginalized neighborhoods, perpetuating injustices developed through historic colonial practices and Western culture.
