Climate and weather are two of the most influential things on earth. Climate and weather can determine where we live, where we go, what we wear, what we eat and more. Climate is the average weather conditions in a specific place over a long period of time. Earth has six main climate zones. While some are very pleasant to live in other such as tundra’s and deserts are extremely harsh and used to impossible to survive in. Climate affects where people decide to settle, but since we have adapted and become more able to withstand various climate conditions. Along with technology gathered over the years such as heating and cooling, refrigerators and freezer we are able to survive almost any climate. Weather refers to the day to day conditions of earth’s atmosphere at a particular place and time. Weather can destroy crops, homes, disrupt transportation and even more. Accurate weather forecasts help save lives as we can be prepared for natural disaster like hurricanes, floods, and tornadoes. Meteorologist are currently seeking better ways to forecast the weather using things like radars, satellites and research planes, and other tools, this part of the video caught my attention most as I thought our currently technology was already pretty good. Another interesting part was that meteorologist will risk their lives to research tornadoes, hurricanes and other phenomenon’s, I hadn’t realized the research required such up-close action as to risk their lives. The video did help the topic come alive, it was a quick and to the point but also detailed in its descriptions.
