Long time no post! It’s been a busy couple months since my last contribution to the page and I thought I would break the spell with an article that I found through the Environmental Defense Fund. This article briefly discusses the ways in which we can observe climate change. While climate change is often described in terms of temperature, the effects of a changing climate are wide ranging. From sea level rise, increased ocean acidity, melting ice sheets, glaciers, and permafrost, we can physically measure the effects of climate change. For someone who wants to brush up on their climate change knowledge, this article is a quick and informative read.
What are some of the other ways in which we can observe climate change? Furthermore, what do these effects mean? What are their consequences both short-term and long-term? Take a look at the article and feel free to add your thoughts.
