Description

The term “Climate Change” has become popular but is not new to our planet. Our climate changes, sometimes dramatically, sometimes gradually, but it always changes. We hear about the wettest month on record, countrywide floods, record high and low temperatures, global warming...how do these changes in weather affect things around us? “A Wet Look at Climate Change” introduces the basics about moisture in air, which is the driving force for our weather. The subsequent chapters cover a range of everyday examples showing the impact these weather changes have around our home, garden and workplace.
