Climate change is the change in our weather patterns that are occurring because of an increase in the earth's average temperature.
It is also known as global warming.
Climate change may result from both natural and human causes though the human causes appear to be increasingly responsible for climate change over the past few decades.
Students of Class VIIB undertook a research project to study the climate change in Bangalore, the specific areas of change, the reasons for this change, its implications as well as strategies to deal with Climate change.
Data was gathered via interviews with senior citizens arranged by the local residents association as well as with officials from the Meteorological Department.
The Centre's recording stations are placed in two different locations in the city, one in the centre and the other near the airport. The readings of these two thermometers are always 1 or 2 degrees different, with the one in the city centre recording higher temperatures consistently.
This is a classic example of the "urban heat island" effect, caused because Bangalore's green cover is being replaced by concrete structures that absorb solar radiation very rapidly.“
