A long-term shift in global or regional climate patterns is referred to as climate change. Climate change now encompasses both human-caused global warming and its effects on Earth's weather patterns. Emissions of greenhouse gases, mostly carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane, are the primary reason. The majority of these emissions are caused by the burning of fossil fuels for energy. Additional sources include agriculture, steelmaking, cement production, and forest loss. These factors, taken together, accelerate global warming. Weather patterns may become less predictable as a result of climate change. Because projected temperature and rainfall levels can no longer be relied upon, these unpredictable weather patterns might make it difficult to maintain and develop crops in farming-dependent regions. Natural factors like as volcanic eruptions, ocean currents, Earth's orbital fluctuations, solar variations, and internal variability all impact and change the planet's temperature. Things we rely on and cherish, such as water, electricity, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health, are all being impacted by climate change.
