Explain use of average "low" and average "high" temperatures in climate charts
It would be very helpful if this article explained the climate charts that appear throughout the site in articles for cities. These charts display average "high" and average "low" temperatures in the city for each month of the year. However, it is not clear exactly what the numbers on the charts represent (presumably, the numbers are the highest temperature on each day of the month over the last several instances of the month). There is also no explanation for why the average "high" and average "low" temperatures are relevant for a person curious about the climate in a city; how related are these temperatures to the temperature during the course of a day in general? Why are average temperatures for each month not reported instead of, or in addition to, the average high and low temperatures? I think this article would be a sensible place for this discussion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:27, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
Can someone reconcile the article, which shows modern temperatures rising, with this article of a reputable source. Or discredit the latter.  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 10:32, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Does anyone object to me setting up automatic archiving for this page using MiszaBot? Unless otherwise agreed, I would set it to archive threads that have been inactive for 30 days and keep ten threads.--Oneiros (talk) 13:50, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
I made a vandalism revert that had the effect of restoring vandalism rather than deleting it. This was due to my misreading the diff. --Tasty monster 07:43, 11 February 2010 (UTC)
the temperature is high with low rainfall in summer rain.this foud in the lower plate basin in the south east. the costal climate is found in southrn chila with moderate temperature ad throughout the year the mediterranean type of climate with hot dry summers and mild winters are experinced in central chil the winters are wet here becausein that season along with the sun the wind belts move northwards . —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 12:56, 6 March 2010 (UTC)
First map--what classification system is it?
It would be nice if the caption of the first climate map, File:ClimateMap World.png, shown prominently at the top of the page, said what Climate classification system it's using. It does not seem to be Köppen. The types have names similar to the Strahler system, but it does not look much like the Strahler map I have in a textbook here. The map's page does not say what system is being used. The present caption, "Worldwide Climate Classifications", leaves a bit to be desired. The map shows only one classification scheme, so "classifications" is wrong. I'd change the caption is "Worldwide Climate Classification", but that would only make the lack of info about what classification is it more obvious. Ideas? Pfly (talk) 20:31, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
What's the normal or most accepted way to describe the climate of a country. For example, what term would you use to describe the climate of France or the Netherlands? Sorry, probably a really simplistic question.. --HighKing (talk) 13:15, 5 December 2010 (UTC)

Earth Cloud cover maps,
Are the cloud maps, changing 2014 cloud cover by month, and a 13 year cloud map, worth including this article? For descriptions and changing map: see http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-bright-side-of-13-years-of-clouds-in-1-map/ also see: http://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/view.php?datasetId=MODAL2_M_CLD_FR I read the map images are free to use per http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/ImageUse/ Jcardazzi (talk) 14:32, 14 May 2015 (UTC)jcardazzi
- Surely they are. As examples of the climate they indicate that change is of the essence. An article is rightly illustrated with examples; and there is no pressure at all to try to keep up to date by changing images every day/week/month/year, it simply doesn't matter.

added Climate change and Global warming references to the top?
Could references to Climate change and global warming articles be placed in the top scope section? They are explained in the last sentences of the lead, but I think it would be helpful to readers to alert readers at the top also to the other articles. Thank you, Jcardazzi (talk) 18:04, 14 May 2015 (UTC)jcardazzi
- I made a first attempt, which you can see at the top of the article. Howzitlook? NewsAndEventsGuy (talk) 18:11, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

NASA scientists report that human-made carbon dioxide (CO2) continues to increase above levels not seen in hundreds of thousands of years: currently, about half of the carbon dioxide released from the burning of fossil fuels remains in the atmosphere and is not absorbed by vegetation and the oceans.
Updated "Climate" definition has been added (see below) - seems better - *entirely* ok with me to rm/rv/mv/ce the edit of course - Comments Welcome - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 23:51, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
