Climate Change is an issue that everyone, young or old needs to take seriously. Climate change refers to the longer term changes in global temperature and weather that may be resulting from extra greenhouse gases we are putting into the atmosphere. Things we do everyday, such as using electricity or driving a car produce greenhouse gases that end up in our atmosphere. These greenhouse gases are upsetting the natural balance that has existed in our atmosphere for thousand of years and may be causing earth to 'heat up". People need to be careful of how much energy we are using and what they are putting in the atmosphere.
