This is the first of nine lessons in the Visualizing and Understanding the Science of Climate Change website. This lesson is an introduction to Earth's climate and covers key principles regarding Earth's unique climate, atmosphere, and regional and temporal climate differences.

This video reviews how increasing temperatures in the Arctic are affecting the path of the jet stream, the severity of storms, and the length of individual weather events (rain, storms, drought).

This video explores what scientists know about how changes in global climate and increasing temperatures affect different extreme weather events.

This short animation helps demonstrate the difference between climate and weather by using the analogy of a leashed dog walking with a man.
