The Great climates of the earth according to the Köppen Climate Classification System

Climate refers to a number of phenomena relative to a region and its weather.

Earth's climate is presently in a period of long, slow recovery from the Little Ice Age that ran for 300 or so years and ended in about 1850. [1]
"On all time scales, there is very good correlation between Earth's temperature and natural celestial phenomena such changes in the brightness of the Sun."[1]

Climate affects the viability of flora and fauna in a given region. It also affects human beings desire to live (or not live), or vacation, in certain areas.

Climate factors

Factors to be taken into account in order to describe a climate include:

Climate classification

The Köppen Climate Classification System is the most widely used for classifying the world's climates.
