Difference Between Weather and Climate

In the next National Geographic episode of Cosmos, Neil deGrasse Tyson will cover the science of climate change. In this clip, he explains the difference between weather and climate:

“Weather is hard to predict, but climate is predictable. Climate has changed many times in the long history of the earth, but always in response to a global force. The strongest force driving climate change right now is the increasing CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels, which is trapping more heat from the sun.”

Watch the entire episode on Sunday, June 1 at 9 PM on Fox. Learn more and watch additional clips on the Cosmos website.
