Climate Change - An Overview
Climate change is defined as the long term change in weather patterns over time. The greenhouse effect is the trapping of heat in the Earth by gasses like carbon dioxide and some scientists argue that increases in atmospheric greenhouse gases will trap more heat. When more heat is trapped, there is more energy to drive weather patterns. This increased heat can also have unpredictable effects such as the melting of ice caps, shifting rainfall patterns and more powerful storms. (03:12)

When all the other kids watch television, is it a good idea to make our kids different? Don't they have to grow up in the world as it is - not the world as we would like it to be?
