Perhaps you are wondering why there is a section on global warming in an app about eclipses. The answer is two-fold:
- First, there is actually a deep connection between the two topics. Historically, eclipses have helped scientists understand the Sun, and because the Sun is the ultimate source of the heat and energy for Earth’s weather and climate, this understanding is crucial to our understanding of global warming.
- Second, global warming is one of the most important issues of our time, but many people still have questions about its reality, its consequences, and how we can solve it. Because one of the creators of this app has also created materials to help you understand global warming, we wanted to share those with you.
