The reason why the term Global Warming is replaced with Climate Change has to do with the fact that it's WORSE than we thought. If the earth was only warming (hat tip to Al Gore) we would be alright, however the fact that cold places are becoming hot and hot places are becoming cold is much worse, meaning that there is a huge planetary shift happening. You may ask why I bring this up? Well, I was reading some extremist evangelical rhetoric about why Al Gore had it wrong by referring to Climate Change as Global Warming and how "liberals" don't get it...well, ironically it appears that conservatives, centrists and liberals do get it, however ultra-conservatives don't.
