Climate encompasses the temperatures, humidity, rainfall, atmospheric pressure, particle count and numerous other meteorological factors in a given region over long periods of time, as opposed to the term weather, which refers to the atmospheric state at any given time.
Global warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th century and its projected continuation. If your site is about this please submit it to the appropriate category of Climate Change.

The study of Urban Climate is increasingly important in a world where the majority of people live in ever-expanding urbanized areas. Effects studied include pollution, air flow among highrises, the effects of trees and parks in urban areas on temperature and humidity, urban heat islands (the local heating effect caused by heat-absorbent building and pavement materials), and more. Also of interest to students of urban climate is the consequences of such effects to human health and well-being.
