Climate change is a lasting change in weather patterns over long periods of time. It can be a natural phenomena and and has occurred on Earth even before people inhabited it. Quite different is a current situation that is also referred to as climate change, anthropogenic climate change, or global warming. This change in weather patterns appears to be happening much faster and is linked to human activity contributing to the greenhouse effect.
