Climate is the pattern in meteorological components like temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind and pressure for a long period of time. A region's climate depends on its latitude, altitude, terrain, their distance from the water bodies and the currents of these water sources.

Climate affect every individual's daily/monthly/annual lives whether they know it or not. Humankind settled in regions where the climate conditions were more favourable for ages. Changing climate, e.g. a region becoming more drought, forced people to leave these regions they had been living in. While we are looking for a place for vacation, buying a house, do farming, founding industrial facilities, planning a city, deciding transportation routes and in many more other subjects we need to consider our choices according to climate information and climate data. Changing climate, not only shapes the earth but also every individual and therefore shapes the communities and also nations.
