Air, weather, climate, seasons, and meteorology connect to everything. For a few examples ... Air, weather, climate, and seasons affect the water and water affects them. Air temperature warms and cools Lake Michigan's water temperature. Lake Michigan's water temperature warms and cools the temperature of the local air. Summer rainstorms add water to Lake Michigan and Lake Michigan provides moisture for winter lake-effect snowstorms. The wind makes Lake Michigan wavy. Air, weather, climate, and seasons are related to the ground. Weather provides the ground with moisture and dryness. Cold winters freeze the top couple feet of the ground. Warm springs thaw the ground. Winters storms cover the ground with snow. Summer storms make the ground wet. In the winter, as land and dunes push air up into storm clouds, "lake effect snow" happens. Air, weather, climate, and seasons relate to plants. Each plant requires a particular climate in which to live. Deciduous plants drop their leaves each fall and grew new leaves in the spring. Plants breathe in carbon dioxide from the air. Trees create shade and block wind; thus, trees make microclimates. Air, weather, climate, and seasons relate to animals. Each animal requires a particular climate in which to live. Amphibians and reptiles hibernate in the winter season. Many birds fly south in the fall season and return north in the spring season. Animals breathe in oxygen from the air. Air, weather, climate, and seasons relate to people. Air, weather, climate, and seasons influence people's health, economy, education, government, art, and values. People need to breathe clean air to be healthy. Weather, climate, and seasons affect the economy. Weather, climate, and seasons influence what locally-grown plants are available during each month of the year. Weather, climate, and seasons influence what kind of clothes people wear each month. Air, weather, climate, and seasons affect education. Nature centers have classes that relate to the local weather, climate, seasons, and phenology. Phenology is the study of the annual timing of biological occurrences in relation to their climate and habitat, such as when flowers blooms, when birds migrate, etc. Air, weather, climate, and seasons affect the government. Governments make laws on people’s activities that affect air quality and the climate. Air, weather, climate, and seasons affect the art. People make art about air, weather, climate, and seasons. Weather, climate, and season affect the land and habitats which provide people with materials with which to make art. Air, weather, climate, and seasons affect people's values. For instance, in the dynamic climate of Michigan, many Michigan residents especially cherish sunny days. However, in the hot and dry climate of Australia, many Australian residents especially cherish cloudy days. Air, weather, climate, and seasons connect to everything. If the climate changes, everything changes. If the climate changes, all social elements and natural elements change too. Everything is connected to everything; thus, the air and climate relate to all social elements (health, economy, school, government, art, values, etc.), culture, and all natural elements (habitats, plants, animals, water, ground, air, etc.).
