  • Climate Change
    • What Causes Climate Change?
      • Pollution
      • Cows - Meathain
      • Greenhouse Gases
      • Burning Fossill Fuels
      • Cars
        • Exausts Co2
      • Factories
        • Smoke
    • The Little Ice Age
      • What Happened To The Vikings Of Greenland?
        • They Died
          • Black Plage
          • War
          • Cold
          • Windy
      • Exam Question
        • Describe How Colder Periods, Such As The Little Ice Age, Affected Farming?
          • Colder Periods Affected Farming Because Crops Wouldnt Grow Because The Ground Would Be Frozen And Animals Wouldnt Have Enough Food So They ould Stave And Eventually Die
      • Mega Fauna
        • Very Large Animals/Mammals. Such As Those That Lived Suring The Last Ice Age
      • Why Is Sally The Long Toothed Sabre Tiger Now Extinct?
        • During The Pleistocene Ice Ages, Very Large Mammals Lived In Europe And North America
        • Sabre Tooth Tigers Roames Europe With Woolly Mammoths, Large Wolves And Giant Beavers (The Size Of Bears)
        • Megafaune Were Well Adapted To Their Enviroment - Their Woolly Coats Kept Them Warm And Their Long Claws And Tusks Enabled Them To Hunt In The Deep Snow And Ice
        • At The End Of The Last Ice Age The UK Was Covered In Ice As Far As South Birmingham
        • Humans Started To Migrate Around Europe And Hunted Megafaune For Their Meat
        • As Soon As The Ice Started To Melt The Whole Ecosystems Were Effected. The Earth Was Warming;Sumnmer Were Longer And Winters Shorter
        • With Increasing Temperatures, Megafaune Were No Longer Suited To Their Envioroment, Their Woolly Coats Were Too Warm And Their Claws And Tusks Prevented Them From Being Successful Hunters
    • Air Masses
      • An Air Mass Is A Large Body Of Air With The Same Temperature And Moisture Characteristics Throughout
        • Artic Maritime
        • Polar Continental
        • Tropical Continental
        • Tropical Maritime
      • Jet Stream&Ocean Currents
        • Jet Streams Are Very Fast Winds That Blow ABout 6 Miles Up Into The Atmosphere Its Powered By The Difference In The Cooler Air And The Warmer Air. We Get A Pressured Gradience Where The Two Masses Meet, That Causes These Fast Winds.
        • Depending Where The Jet Stream Is Depends On The Type Of Weather We Get
  • 10,000 Years Ago The Earth Started To Warm Up And The Ice That Covered Most Of The UK And Europe Started To Retreat
    • Why Is Sally The Long Toothed Sabre Tiger Now Extinct?
      • During The Pleistocene Ice Ages, Very Large Mammals Lived In Europe And North America
      • Sabre Tooth Tigers Roames Europe With Woolly Mammoths, Large Wolves And Giant Beavers (The Size Of Bears)
      • Megafaune Were Well Adapted To Their Enviroment - Their Woolly Coats Kept Them Warm And Their Long Claws And Tusks Enabled Them To Hunt In The Deep Snow And Ice

      • Humans Started To Migrate Around Europe And Hunted Megafaune For Their Meat
      • As Soon As The Ice Started To Melt The Whole Ecosystems Were Effected. The Earth Was Warming;Sumnmer Were Longer And Winters Shorter
      • With Increasing Temperatures, Megafaune Were No Longer Suited To Their Envioroment, Their Woolly Coats Were Too Warm And Their Claws And Tusks Prevented Them From Being Successful Hunters
  • Some Areas Were Left In Drought Aftr The Glaclens (Which Provided Fresh Melt Water) Retreated To Their Present Areas
    • The Food That Sally Used To Eat Was Scarce As Food Chains Started To Breakdown Amd Species Became Extinct
      • Polar Maritime
        • An Air Mass Is A Large Body Of Air With The Same Temperature And Moisture Characteristics Throughout
          • Artic Maritime
          • Polar Continental
          • Tropical Continental
          • Tropical Maritime
      • The Oceans Of The Earth Transfer Heat From One Location To Another VIA Massive Ocean Currents. They Bring Warm Water From The Equator Up Towards Higher Latitudes And Cooler Water Down Towards The Equator. Therefore, Helping To Regulate Temperature
        • Jet Stream&Ocean Currents
          • Jet Streams Are Very Fast Winds That Blow ABout 6 Miles Up Into The Atmosphere Its Powered By The Difference In The Cooler Air And The Warmer Air. We Get A Pressured Gradience Where The Two Masses Meet, That Causes These Fast Winds.
