    Objectives • The learners are expected to: - identify the

    everyday effects of climate change. - differentiate weather from climate; and, differentiate drought, wildfires and heat waves from one another. - learn how climate change causes drought, wildfires and heat waves
  2. 3.

    Objectives • The learners are expected to: - identify how

    climate change affects agriculture and the ecosystem. - understand the importance of studying climate change and the importance of being responsible for our actions.
  3. 6.

    Guide Questions: A. Define the other effects of climate change.

    Give examples. B. Which effect of climate change is the most evident in your everyday life, as a student, as a member of your community? C. How can you apply your learnings in your life?

    What is Weather? - State of the atmosphere, describing for

    example the degree to which it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy. - Changes in a short period of time.

    Differentiate Climate to Weather ❏ Changes at a short period

    of time ❏ Changes everyday ❏ Short term changes ❏ Reported as forecast Weather Climate ❏ Long term changes in the Earth’s climate ❏ includes warming, cooling and changes besides temperature. ❏ Includes seasons ❏ Reported as averages Temperature Precipitation Humidity Wind’s Direction & Speed

    Effects of Climate Change to Weather The weather : •

    Changes more frequently. • Boosts the probability of extreme weather events. • Rain Patterns are changing.

    Effects of Climate Change Drought Wildfires - a large, destructive

    fire that spreads quickly over woodland or brush. - a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall, leading to a shortage of water. Heatwaves - a prolonged period of abnormally hot weather.

    Effects on Agriculture Climate is the primary determinant of agricultural

    productivity. • Crop productivity will alter due to climate change • Livestock diseases are mainly affected by an increase in temperature
  15. 27.

    Effects on Agriculture Climate is the primary determinant of agricultural

    productivity. • Water salinization could affect animal metabolism • Animal begin to suffer heat stress

    Effects on Ecosystems Climate change plays an important role in

    ecosystems. A change in climate affects the ecosystems in the following ways: • The changing temperature may force species to migrate • Sea level rises and may force species to relocate or die • Disappearing habitats • Causes natural disasters
