What is ))-Climate ))-Change%%) cli·mate change noun °± a change in global or regional climate patterns² in particular a change apparent from the mid to late ³´th century onwards and attributed largely to the increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by the use of fossil fuels± ³± &QNRbYJ HMbSLJ refers to any significant HMbSLJ in the measures of HQNRbYJ lasting for an extended period of time± In other words² HQNRbYJ HMbSLJ includes major HMbSLJX in temperature² precipitation² or wind patterns² among other effects² that occur over several decades or longer±

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
