What is the difference between global warming and climate change?

    Climate change is simply a more appropriate term for what we once called global warming. The alarming increase of carbon dioxide in the air is actually exacerbating a number of climatic conditions, not just high temperatures. There is and will be an increase in severity of storms of all types. The extreme and unusual cold snap on the eastern coast and in the midwest is an example. And though the heating of the atmosphere is at the root cause of some of the problems — flooding due to rising sea levels as a result of melting glaciers and ice caps, for example — it is still more appropriate (as well as defensible) to refer to the threats facing us as climate change.
