Scientists have been studying the climate on Earth for many years. They have found causes of global climate change. These are some scientific explanations on natural climate change:
• Every 41,000 years, Earth’s tilt increases or decreases by one and a half degrees. This may not seem like much but it has a huge effect on our climate. When this happens, the amount of sun rays in a specific area will increase. Therefore, there will be a higher temperature.
• Every 100,000 years, Earth’s elliptical orbit starts to vary. This causes Earth to warm when it comes closer to the sun and cool as it moves away from the sun
• Clouds and volcanic dust reflect the sun’s rays onto the earth. This means that when a volcano erupts the gasses will go into the atmosphere.
• Because of gases in the atmosphere such as water vapor and carbon dioxide, the Earth does not lose heat. Therefore, it will get hotter.
