Featured Article: Climate change

Climate Change, in its broadest sense, is any change in the state of the climate or climate system that persists for an extended time period (decades or longer), whether caused by natural (solar changes, etc.) or anthropogenic processes. An example would be the Younger Dryas, a cold-climate period from roughly 12,900 to 11,500 BP. In popular, current usage, the term is typically employed in the narrow sense of contemporary changes in which humans are regarded as a major or the dominant contributor, and specifically the perceived warming of the Earth’s air and ocean temperature. As such, it is also known as global warming.
