We know very well that our planet’s climate is changing, but what is climate change and why is it happening? And has it got anything to do with the ozone hole? Read the sections below for a climate change 101.
What is the carbon cycle?
Humans heating the planet
Human activities have raised the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide content by 50% in less than 200 years, an incredible rate of change. This speed of change makes it almost impossible for plants and animals to adapt quickly enough.
How do we know what we know about climate change?
How much hotter?
And the ozone hole?
Who is behind Curious Climate Schools? Curious Climate Schools is run by climate change and education researchers at the University of Tasmania. It’s funded by the Tasmanian Climate Change Office, the University’s College of Science and Engineering, and the University’s Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS). Curious Climate Schools builds on the first successful Curious Climate project which answered climate questions in communities around Tasmania.
