Climate change is predicted to cause a number of weather extremes which could directly affect our wildlife, for example through flooding or storms.The quality of the food we eat, the water we drink and our homes are all dependent on our climate and weather.Although it is impossible to say this flooding was a result of climate change, some computer predictions say that we can expect to see more extreme weather events such as flooding in the future.Climate researchers predict that the UK climate will become warmer, with high temperatures in the summer becoming more frequent and very cold winters more rare.IMPACTS Scientists around the globe are looking at all the evidence around climate change and using supercomputer models to come up with...

This factor does not affect inbound tourists as much as they visit for the heritage and local attractions.The weather will affect the inbound tourists as well as domestic tourists, because of the climate in the UK the weather is always changing and therefore it can never be assured that you will have the same weather all day, because of this factor many domestic tourists will choose to travel to countries abroad in hope for sun.The outbound factors are; the exchange rate, travel restrictions, emergence of new markets, competition from other destinations and the weather.The main organisation that promotes Britain is VisitBritiain, every year they make a new promotional video that shows many different things you can do in Britain, these ar...

Weather forecasting is a useful way to alter one’s behaviour or plan activities to suit prevailing weather conditions on the day of event.In fact, although weather ranks second after attraction/activities, given only a choice, only about one quarter, specifically, 27% of the tourists chose weather to be the most important.Thus, having already considered Singapore’s hot and humid climate before the trip, factoring in possible weather conditions that might be experienced, attractions and activities that can be found in Singapore is determined to be more important at the expense of weather.However, it is surprising that although 59% of respondents engaged in a pre-planned weather dependent activity of sun tanning and swimming as well as 10%...

Rainy Weather when drops of water fall from clouds, the weather is rainy.For example, people say “Death valley has a desert climate.” Climate is the weather that a place usually has year after year.Weather generally refers to day-to-day temperature and precipitation activity, whereas climate is the term for the average atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time.Studying how the weather works on another planet has been helpful in understanding how weather works on earth.Weather does occur in the stratosphere and can affect weather lower down in the troposphere, but the exact mechanisms are pearly understood.

Overall, it seems that the air masses do have a very large effect on the weather brought to the UK, and therefore its climate too.The effects of these continental air masses are less prevalent than maritime influences; however they still have important influences on weather in the British Isles, and are also fundamental in explaining temporal and spatial differences in climate across the country.As discussed above, there are also many other factors which influence the air masses themselves, but also which directly influence the weather and climate of the British Isles.The air masses are certainly crucial to the weather patterns seen across the country, however I would arguably say that the location of the British Isles, with its exposure...

( IPCC Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001; editor:A.P.Baede) Climate change is a variation of average weather.Climate is defined as the average weather, which means variety of weather conditions as rain, snow, hail, sun, and wind over period of time about 30 years that can be measured in any particular place.In conclusion, it seems that causes of climate change have effects on nature which covers almost everything.For the last century climate has dramatically changed.In Europe, 64% of all catastrophic events since 1980 are directly attributable to weather and climate extremes: floods, storms, and droughts/heatwaves.

This indirectly points to a bigger picture that for destinations attracting mostly day visitors, climate change may have smaller implications, since potential visitors are more likely to change plans or adapt to the on-site weather conditions (Aylen et al., 2005).The significance of climate among other factors was revealed in the survey and confirmed the findings by Hamilton, et al (2005) that weather and climate can act as both push and pull factors.With Singapore’s tourism industry being highly diversified without favouring any particular type of tourism, there is a balance of both indoor and outdoor attractions to provide visitors satisfactory tourism experiences even under uncertain weather conditions.With attractions being the most ...

In line with this, the extent of climate change and the views of people about it offer challenges for the steady communication of the problem by presenting a message that is motivating.With the continuous development of information technology, the increasing flow of pictures and images is evident showing both the authenticity and fundamental realities seen in the media making it a good motive to be applied in climate change mitigation.The manner with which people perceived their duties in the determination of effects of climate change is of meaningful significance in the aspect of adaptation, policy-making and the mitigation of the effects of climate change.These great examples reinforced with the developments in information technology i...

However, the study of climate gained more ground in the 15th century when explorers begun to search for new lands across the seas, seeking for gold, spices, and lands to conquer, meteorological instruments invented by Galileo (thermometer) and by Torricelli (barometer) enabled men to measure the state of climate in different places and times.In a literature found in the World Meteorological Organization website, and made by authors Andre, Garcia, de Melo a Abreu, Nieto, Prasad & White (2007), on climate and weather risk assessment for agricultural planning, Andre et al.Currently, this paper finds that the study of climate is not only important but imperative because it affects the ecosystem and even the extinction of species in extre...

This theory of “climate change is the idea that humans are having a direct impact on global and regional climate patterns.As early as 1896 climate change pioneer Svante Arrhenius began researching the impact of carbon emissions on the climate.Today we know that climate change can cause sea level rises due to shrinking ice sheets and glaciers, global temperature, warming of the oceans, extreme weather events, and ocean acidification (NASA, 2014).As climate change increases so does the impact of weather events on our cities.Only during the late 19th and 20th century did climate change really begin to immerge as an idea (Spencer Weart 2015).

Climate change is a long-term alteration in the statistical distribution of weather pattern over periods ranging from decades to millions of years.If we do not reduce the rate of climate change, hundreds of millions of people may be exposed to famine, water shortages, extreme weather conditions and a 20-30% loss of animal and plant species.To put things on a conclusive note, global warming already disrupts millions of lives daily in the forms of destructive weather patterns and loss of habitat (Houghton, 2007).This change can be felt in the tropical climate areas where the weather is getting hotter and hotter every day.Should the effects of climate change get any worse than what it is now, people around the world will have to face some s...
