Humanity celebrates World Climate Day

Washington, Mar 26 (Prensa Latina) Humanity is celebrating on Tuesday World Climate Day, which was declared by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1992 to raise awareness of the importance and impact of global warming.

The last few decades have recorded significant climate changes due to rapid industrial development and population growth, with consequences such as the greenhouse effect, environmental pollution, overexploit of natural resources, and damage to the ozone layer, affecting the Earth’s natural cycles.

Climate is a set of meteorological and atmospheric conditions of a geographic area over an extended period, with variables such as wind, rainfalls, humidity, air pressure, and temperature.

Many factors naturally influence climate, including heat-trapping gas accumulation in the atmosphere, changes in solar intensity, volcanic eruptions, and others.

Climate is also a significant element in those activities developed by man that require specific environmental conditions, including agriculture, hunting, and legal fishing.
