Weather vs. Climate

So it’s been two long weeks since I posted something (and I’m sorry for that). Christmas with family and New Year’s with friends got me at the edge of bankruptcy, gaining some extra kilos and just enjoying my beloved ones, but I’m back peeps! So much has happened since my last post… so I would like to make a comeback with something that made me almost fall down from my chair. Trump’s Dec. 29th tweet. Let’s take a look why…

This tweet is wrong in so many ways; for example, no one should ever praise or encourage for more Global Warming. Secondly, if someone dares to do it, at least I don’t expect it to be the leader of one of the most powerful countries on Earth (I assume he/she would be a high educated person who understands the complex link between Earth and human processes)… and well, the fact that Mr. Trump doesn’t understand the difference between Climate and Local Weather.

Let’s remember what climate and weather are…

Climate refers to how the atmosphere acts over a long period of time.

Weather describes what’s happening on a much shorter time scale.

Then, as our friends from the New York Times said in this article, “climate can be thought of, in a way, as the sum of long periods of weather.”

So peeps, now you know! Remember Climate Change is real and we, humans, DO NOT OWN THIS PLANET, we SHARE IT with other species so lets take care of it all together! Don’t forget to comment, share and subscribe! 😀

What’s warm as the Sun and spicy as a jalapeño? My home country México. My name is Fernando and I came to Sweden to study the master’s programme in Sustainable Technology at KTH. Come, join me to learn and understand the importance of having a sustainable lifestyle, and where else to do this than in Sweden?
