How could it happen that more than a dozen of the most prestigious scientific associations signed and submitted this letter on ‘climate change’ without having ensured that the used terminology is sufficiently defined. Read the rest of the entry
The UNFCCC does not define ‘climate’ at all, while
WMO says: 'climate' is average weather.
This website will provide information and ask, does science know what climate is?
The Term Weather in: „Weather Glossaries”
This is a provisional list of „Weather Glossaries” to see what they have to say on the meaning of weather and climate. This list will be reviewed and amended in the future.
The reader should kindly note that Whatisclimate is primarily interested in the term ‘climate’. This makes it inevitable necessary to pay considerable attention to the term ‘weather’ as ‘climate’ used to be defined as the average weather over a longer period of time. As far as this is or might be the case today, which will be elaborated and analysed in various contributions on this site – it is necessary to know how weather is defined in the first place. For example: If climate is defined as: “The historical record and description of average daily and in seasonal weather”, see: The Weather Channel (below), it is necessary the examine the term ‘weather’ in detail, to see whether the subsequent term ‘climate’ makes sense, or is a farce, which explains little, but may cause confusion and misunderstanding.
‘Whatisclimate’ will present this list without any comments hoping that the interested reader will quickly discover the superficiality of the explanations in many cases, and may wonder that meteorology science seems of having not been able to develop more convincing definitions since its foundation ca 150 years ago.
