Climate Change FAQs


The warming of the climate system is unequivocal and climate change has become a real and imminent challenge to the world. Through a question and answer approach, the Climate Change FAQs will explain some basic knowledge and facts of climate change in layman terms in order to enhance the public's understanding of the causes of climate change, its impacts and what we can do to mitigate its effects.

Two new topics have been added to Climate Change FAQs, they are:

  1. Do volcanoes emit more carbon dioxide than human activities?
  2. What is medieval warm period?

More topics will be added later, please stay tuned!
