How do latitude and altitude affect the climate?

My answer: The altitude affects the climate in the sense that the higher the altitude, the colder and harsher the climate will become. Latitude affecting the climate, however, depends on the equator. The closer the latitude is to 0 degrees (the equator), the greater increase of temperature and the more humidity in the atmosphere.
