I promoted this page from being a sub-cat of climatology to being a sub-cat of earth sci. This was because:

  • it makes it much easier to find on looking down the category heirarchy, and it should be easy to find (easier than climatology)
  • climatology is a sub-cat of meterology. that is probably fair: almost all climatology is atmospheric. but large amounts of climate change *aren't* atmospheric.

I'm a newcomer to this cat stuff though. Can cl ch go on being a sub-cat of climatology as well? (William M. Connolley 22:36, 28 Sep 2004 (UTC))

I think it can. However; what should be in Category:History of climate and what should go in this category? Could we re-categorize this category so that it only includes articles about present situations/generally about climate change, and put past climate changes in the history category? ✏ Sverdrup 19:53, 3 Oct 2004 (UTC)
(William M. Connolley 20:20, 3 Oct 2004 (UTC)) To me, history of climate is about historical perspectives on the study of climate not the history of climate itself. Everything about the climates-of-the-past should be in cat:climate and/or cat:climate change... perhaps this needs to be worked out before we get too much further! (or, palaeoclimatology? or?)

Climate change stubs[edit]

I suggest a stub category about climate change. --Nopetro (talk) 12:15, 20 April 2009 (UTC)


This category was useless as a navigational aid. There was something like 170 articles on a wide range of topics, some of which had only a passing relationship to anthropogenic climate change. I have now almost finished reallocating the articles by removing irrelevant categories or by adding them to new categories that I created. -- Alan Liefting (talk) - 05:45, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
