Weather is the day to day fluctuations in the atmosphere while Climate describes temperature and humidity
changes over long periods of time. Climates are not static- they cycle through yearly, centurial (is that a
word?) and millennial patterns.
Global winds are caused by the constant balancing act going on in our atmosphere as moist, warm air
travels upward from the Equator and then cools and sinks at the 30 degree latitude belt. The air rises again
at the 60 latitude and sinks at the poles. Whe
The "normal" state of affairs with relatively cool ocean temperatures on the Equatorial Pacific Ocean. Trade

Metals and Halogens:
Lead emissions are about 2 millions tons a year, 2/3 of all metallic air pollution. Most of the lead is from
leaded gasoline. About 20% of inner city children suffer from some kind of mental retardation because of
lead poisoning. Rado
Temperature inversions: occur when a stable layer of warmer air overlays cooler air, reversing the normal
temperature decline with increasing height and preventing convection currents from dispersing pollutants.
This is really bad if the pollutan
