Climate love

Scientists are doing a great job showing that climates are currently changing relatively fast

Changing climate is a natural phenomenon, with huge shifts in climate over a long period of time. Over the last 100 million years, our planet's climate has changed from an ice-free and warm world to cold ice ages with ice caps covering one-fourth of the land surface. In recent years, anthropogenic climate change is occurring due to human CO2 emissions, causing the planet to warm up relatively quickly and causing natural disasters. To understand how climate is changing today and make predictions about the future, it is helpful to look at climates in the past. This is possible by using geological information, which gives us a clearer understanding of what influences and is influenced by a changing climate, and can be used to create models to make predictions. This article explains how this can be done:
