Our atmosphere and the weather (atmospheric effects) that it provides have been in the news a lot recently. The topics range from the Global Conference on Climate change held in Paris, France where almost 200 countries participated, to the droughts in California, to the melting of the polar ice sheets, to above and below “average” temperatures for a season.
Your task for this forum is to present an atmospheric/weather condition that is having an impact on humans – (good or bad). The impact could be living conditions, economic in nature or just humorous. Sometimes we need to look at the world as a “whole” to gain a better understanding of the complexities of our wonderful “blue marble”, planet earth.
