I've been corrected after calling it global warming and have been told to call it climate change. I guess it's global warming due to the melting ice caps but overall it's a climate change throughout the world.
"Global warming" is way too specific to support ecomaniac fraud. There hasn't been any in years, maybe not in all of geologic history. There is no evidence the whole shebang isn't just natural and cyclical.
"Climate change" covers anything that may happen. It's flexible enough to handle warming, cooling, the usual worst weather in memory, and whatever else may come down the pike. You can keep a scam going forever on that.
Just don't forget to add "anthropogenic" as a modifier, though most ecomaniacs prefer the more plebeian "man made." After all, climate change is going on all the time, so you have to make sure you always, repeatedly, ceaselessly fill people's ears with the assertion that it's their fault. Can't get much money or power from something you can't hang on them, you know.
Neither, I think it should be called - 'big con by the panic merchants.'
They refer to entirely different things. SCIENTISTS have been using the terms correctly for decades, but the general public and the media usually just use them as synonyms.
Global Warming refers to increasing energy levels within the Earth system as a result of rising levels of greenhouse gases.
Climate Change refers to the specific climactic changes which result from those increased energy levels, such as altered weather, precipitation, and wind patterns.
In a simple sense, Global Warming is the cause and Climate Change is the consequence.
The modifier Anthropogenic used to be used to distinguish between natural fluctuations and man-made fluctuations. You don't see it so much anymore because in the scientific community there is very little doubt left that the changes we are seeing are a result of human activities. The people who continue to deny Global Warming and Climate Change do so without a single piece of evidence and without seeming to have any idea at all how the scientific process works. In my experience I have never met one who has ever read a single piece of scientific climate research. I can't figure out why anyone would listen to them. Unfortunately there are a lot of people who are terribly uninformed and they are putting us all in grave peril.
Listening to the news this morning I heard that parts of the US are hotter than they have been since 1931. Think about that. 1931. How long has Climate-gate been going on?. In the 70's we were in a global cooling and the next ice age was coming in 25 years. I have a feeble memory, but I have through those 25 years and don't remember the freeze.
When I was in grade school in the 60's I learned that glaciers broke off when they were growing. It was called calving. FYI go to the weather channel website and look at their weather history. It's amazing how much information they have.
Global warming leads to climate change. That is climate change is the result of global warming.
Global warming and climate change are two different-yet related- phenomena. Global wariming is a rise in global temperature that causes the climate to change in different ways in different parts of the world. Global warming= the disease, climate change= the symptom.

Is global warming and climate change an important issue, or is it a hoax?I know there is much talk about climate change issues. I also know that various people profit off of these concerns, and the media certainly promotes theses issues as well. So a question needs to be asked, is...

There are two major would shaping forces at risk with a Trump presidency; an economic meltdown brought on by a sharp decline in American productivity, and, a much more important one, the environment. I will leave the economy to another forum, for it is the environment I am much more worried...

I'm confused. I've read and heard arguments that global warming is really just part of a natural temperature change process for the earth. I've also read that it's completely man-made? Is it one or both of these? Please explain.

Why do you not believe in Global Warming/Climate Change?I have no doubt our earth is warming at an alarming rate. One of the reasons I think this is because of the photo I included with the question. Otzi--the Iceman--was frozen over 5000 years ago and has remained that way through all sorts of...
