Climate


Climate is a n overall weather in a specific place. It is hotter or colder depending on where you are on the earth and where the sun shines. Different temperature can cause different weather extremes like hurricanes, tornado, blizzard and heat waves. Animals that live in those colder or hotter areas have adapted to survive. Contrary to popular belief, climate is not weather. Weather describes what is happening at that moment, and climate describes the average temperature, humidity, and so on and so forth.
