The big difference currently is that those whose underlying interest is in income redistribution have found it politically expedient to seize upon the phenomenon to further their agenda. It's just that simple.
Actually the big difference currently is that it is being done through the production of CO2 by human beings and that it is being done many times faster than at any point in the geological record.
You are living through an unprecedented experiment in the conseqie=uences of changing global temperature rapidly, how exciting is that?
I would point out that every other similar experiment in the past has lead to mass extinctions where all the larger animal species died out, but we are a resourceful species so perhaps we will find a way to survive it.
And you can remain happy in the knowledge that you haven't allowed nasty leftists to get their hands on the many billions that a few people globally now hoard.
Imagine how pleased your descendants will be with you that you didn't let the prospect of civilisational failure get in the way of protecting very wealthy people.
Moreover because the thought of "global warming" was welcome to many of those freezing their butts off in cold winters and was inconveniently susceptible to contra-indicting evidence, the hand wringers with a vested interest in redistributing wealth to underdeveloped countries switched to the phrase "climate change" which of course can't be denied. The climate will continue to change over the millennia. Nor should any prudent man expend any effort trying to change the inevitable.
You need to learn the difference between, weather, seasons and climate.
Don't worry it won't hurt and if it shouldn't take more than 20 mins to get the basics.
This idea that that there has been some deeply underhand move from global warming to climate change that serves some nefarious purpose is nonsense that even a moron could see through with a few moments research that so that, again, is a stroke of luck.
Both terms have always been used Global Warming is what is happening due to the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere and then basic radiative physics, climate change is the inevitable result of that warming.
Nor of course do those with a vested interest in preaching about mankind's complicity in climate change see any need to give up jetting around the globe, ferrying their kids to school in minivans and then driving to the supermarket. I mean "Walk?! Heaven forbid!" Changing their own behaviour would be far too inconvenient. It's everybody else who should change their ways....
I'm pretty sure you are well aware of the litany of logical failures in this style of argument.
You live in the world you lib=ve in, living in that world does not preclude you from wanting to change it. You don'=t have to live in a cave and eat berries to want to change the world in a positive way
