Today is World Climate Day is March 23rd and is hosted by the World Meteorology Organization. http://www.wmo.int/worldmetday/index_en.html This has connections to the health of the Earth, which of course effects what happens to the inhabitants and natural resources. Just prior to this, their page notes World Water Day, celebrating the benefits and importance of fresh clean water sources remaining pure and renewable for all.
This organization and their webpage is kind of new, so perhaps it is World Climate Day big news. The World Meteorology Organization is located in Switzerland, and the webpage translates so users worldwide can access the information and education there.
The World Meteorolgy Organization supports youth education on the subject heavily, and it notes the "Youth Corner" has been revamped, to provide entertainment, activities that are climate focused and information sheets. http://www.wmo.int/youth/
The World Meteorology Organization provides general education about weather and climate, but also about education that advances to careers in this earth and atmospheric science realm.
Here is a local example of same https://www.ou.edu/content/ags/degrees.html at the University of Oklahoma, in Norman, Oklahoma. Which is also where the National Weather Service is located.
NWS http://www.srh.noaa.gov/oun/ is a vital part of Oklahoma's weather awareness and safety. It is an integral part of the studies of Climatology and Meteorology for OU students in this progam, and Oklahoma is home to EF5 in deuces, which even surprised the highly specialized, cutting edge staff at the NWS in Norman.
Local weather, Nationa Weather Service,World Weather and World Climate are different things.
Happy World Climate Day 2014.
