LINK The Climate Elephant in the Atmosphere (and in the Room) - CounterPunch.org

"Climate is a complex biological and chemical interaction between the Earth and the Sun. The Earth is the only star, which is the only live planet in the known universe. It keeps a safe distance from the fiery Sun, so that life is its distinguishing characteristic.

The Sun bathes the Earth with life-giving light and energy. In addition, in the past billions of years, these solar blessings have been giving rise to temperature, winds, storms, oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, drinking water, forests, deserts, animals, plants and flowers.

We also use weather to understand the phenomena of rain, cold, hot and other changes in the atmosphere (sphere of steam). NASA defines weather and climate in terms of time: “Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time, and climate is how the atmosphere “behaves” over relatively long periods of time.”

Time defines the Cosmos with the Sun at its center.

The Sun, which the ancient Greeks called Helios and worshipped as a god for millennia, gives us, humans, light and life. In its absence, the Earth would have been a frozen stone.

Human activities

NASA admitted last month that “humans are throwing Earth’s energy budget off balance.” This means climate change. Experts in the sciences of the Earth and its relations to the Sun – climatologists — have been warning the leaders of the countries of the world that human activities are destabilizing life on this billion-years-old planet.

Humans are threatening all life on Earth, especially wildlife. About a million species of plants and animals have been brought to the precipice of extinction. David Attenborough, the distinguished British zoologist, is warning that wildlife extinction and continuing the destruction of biodiversity are “threatening food and water security, undermining our ability to control our climate and even putting us at greater risk of pandemic diseases.”

In addition to the savaging of wildlife, other human activities are intensifying the ferocity of the crisis of crises, climate change."

That second sentence needs work, no?
