Climate is the average of the temperature in the air, water and soil in a certain area. The climate never stays the same,it is always changing because of the factors in the environment. Sometimes the changes can be small like the increase in temperature by a few degrees  but there can be huge changes in the climate by factors such as greenhouse gases and other pollution. One major pollutant or greenhouse gas that affects the climate in the environment is carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide can be found mostly from factories that are burning fossil fuels for gas or the gas used to fuel cars. One place carbon dioxide affect its climate is a power plant called the Ravenswood Generating Station also known as the Big Allis, this factory can generate energy of about 21 percent of the electricity that New York City uses. The steam and electrical generators used in the factory are also powered by natural gas.  The burning of the natural gases to power the generators produces a lot of carbon dioxide which is released into the environment and contributes to global warming. Greenhouse gases traps heat in the atmosphere which causes the air temperature in climates everywhere to increase.
