Understanding Climate Change

11/01/2016 - (This article first appeared in the November-December 2016 issue of The American Postal Worker magazine.)

Climate change is defined as “Any significant long-term change in the expected patterns of average weather of a region (or the whole Earth) over a significant period of time. These changes may take tens, hundreds or perhaps millions of years. These changes can be caused by processes inside the Earth, forces from outside (e.g. variations in sunlight intensity) or, more recently, human activities.”
