Global warming, not climate change.

Post by RayProudfoot »

Years ago we called it Global Warming. Then the agenda changed no doubt down to some bright spark and it’s now called Climate Change. :D

Just one problem with that. The climate has always changed. So let’s stick Man made in front of it. Except “man” isn’t very inclusive as I’m sure many women are also responsible. :lol:

But it’s beyond doubt the problem is global and not limited to a few countries and we agree that the temperatures are rising from the Antarctic to the Arctic then it’s warming. They’re not dropping anywhere I’m aware of.

Put the two together and you have Global Warming. Indisputable! :D
Cheers,
Ray, Cheshire.

Global warming hasn't changed names, it coexists with climate change.

The problem in using climate change is that it could also apply if the planet was cooling. It’s less clear than global warming.

I think you worry about the wrong things: the terms are quite clear after all those years of discussion.
The factual changes have more weight.

Where did I say I was worried? I’m not in the slightest. I have a logical mind. My explanation of why I believe global warming is the most accurate phrase is hard to dispute.
