Global Climate Change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns. Throughout the last decade the earth has seen many climate shifts and changes. It may be a change in the average weather conditions, or in the circulation of weather around the average conditions. This has been the cause of the long summers or long winters, depends on where you are living. The weather is a very odd in the Mid-West because of the Global Climate Change. In this paper I will be telling you about the Atmosphere, the science of Climate Change, and how we can respond to it. The atmosphere is a collection of gases that gravity holds in around the earth. The gases with in the lowest layer of the atmosphere are called

The weather in any one area, however, may eventually influence, or be influenced by, the weather a great distance away. Weather usually changes from hour to hour or from day to day. Over many years, certain conditions are characteristic of the weather in an area. The average weather in an area, as well as its variations and extremes over many years, is called climate. Like weather, climate can change, too, but much more slowly. The climate is the outcome of long term weather patterns in a region. For periods of 30 years or more, however, meteorological records reveal that different weather conditions overcome over different parts of the world. Each set of circumstances forms a climate type, and the area covered by a specific type is called a climate region. Some parts of the world are hot and rainy nearly every day, they have a tropical wet climate. Others are cold and snow-covered most of the year, they have a polar climate. Between the icy poles and the steamy tropics are many other climates that help make the Earth unique.
Different temperature and moisture regimes in different parts of the world have created different types of ecosystems called biomes, reflecting the adaptations of plants, animals, and microbes to the frequent weather patterns, or climate, of a region. Humans can adjust to almost any climate, but this is not true of the other populations of the specific regions we live in. If other living organisms
