Dog meets acceleration!
Wind is the rough horizontal movement of air
(as opposed to an air current) caused by uneven heating of the Earth's surface.
It occurs at all scales, from local breezes generated by heating of land surfaces
and lasting tens of minutes to global winds resulting from solar heating of the Earth
The two major influences on the atmospheric circulation are the differential heating
between the equator and the poles, and the rotation of the planet.
