Everyone knows rain, cold and storms as "weather". And this is directly related to the climate. Checker Tobi explains vividly what the climate is, how it works and why people need to protect it. He even flies into a thundercloud with a propeller engine from the German Aerospace Center. He explains what the greenhouse effect, climate change and the personal ecological footprint is all about in simple terms – and what every individual can do to protect the climate and thus the earth.
