Global Warming vs. Climate Change: Here's an interesting article about the terminology. http://pd.charlotte.com/sp?eId=20&e...w.charlotteobserver.com/171/story/396266.html I know there are those who have negative feelings about the Charlotte Observer. Since the demise of Knight Ridder, the paper has changed somewhat. Still, it's the printed news source in my adopted home town, and their web site, in additon to Yahoo! and similar sites, gives one a view of 'mainstream media', which, hopefully, is less biased than acknowledged Conservative or Liberal opinion sites. At any rate, the article is a good read, and the bottom line suggests that "Climate Change" is more appropriate, since it is all-encompassing, whereas "Global Warming" alludes to human influence on the world's climate.
