    There IS Climate Change, it covers the cycles of Heating and Cooling which occur continually.

    Global Warming is a "Chicken Little" situation which occurs alternating with Global Cooling. 

    Since Global Warming is counter weighted by Global Cooling it only is embarrassing to the pseudo scientists and their Chicken Little thralls when confronted with counter claims.

    So they changed their positional claims to the all encompassing and correct "Climate Changes",

    There is no reliable proofs that Global Warming is more dangerous, as Nature has a way of maintaining a balance in cycling.

    BTW the U.S. only appears to have a 3% effect. And nobody seems to want to stop the China, India, and third world industries AND volcano activities which cause much more "damage".

    When someone told Al Gore they could fleece more money if they changed the name of their scam... If it sounds more threatening they can get more lemmings to go along with it..

    When the liberals and democrats were wrong about a new ice age. They then changed it to global warming. Since nothing happened with that they started with climate change.

    Understand that, as earth warms, certain climates might become cooler at times while the atmosphere adjusts - we'll still have winter so it's not like all cold air will disappear - it will just interact with more warmer air than before - and certainly more violently. It's not like things are just going to get warmer and warmer wherever you are - that's kind of childish thinking.

    "Climate change" was basically an easier sell than "global warming."  Most people love warm weather.  It's more pleasant and makes food grow.  

    "Climate change" encompassed so many more predictions--predictions, of course, that never came to pass.

    Marketers for the cause realized that "climate change" was too innocuous, so they made a conscious effort to introduce terms like "climate crisis" and "global heating" and "climate emergency."

    It’s one of many denier fake claims, that there has been some recent change of name. Of course this lame claim tries to ignore that the CC in IPCC has existed since the UN formed it back in the 80’s.

    Global warming is just one of many environmental challenges facing mankind. Taking effective action may be far easier said than done. Technology alone is not enough. The heart must be engaged, also.
