Welcome to the to-MA-to--to-MAH-to debate for discussing a toastier Earth.
A new Yale University study finds that sort of verbal switcheroo carries weight when Americans use or hear global warming versus climate change.
Depending on the political views of the person speaking or listening, the phrase global warming and climate change can evoke opposing emotions and beliefs - and varying degrees of urgency about our obligation to respond, Yale researchers reported Tuesday.
But no matter which side of the debate a person falls on, theres a common truth: the utterance of global warming is more apt to grab his or her attention than the use of climate change the researchers found.
For example, referencing global warming (as opposed to climate change) is linked to a greater sense of personal threat, especially among women, the Greatest Generation (68+), African-Americans, Hispanics, Democrats, Independents, Republicans, liberals and moderates, states the Yale report.
The study, which does not endorse or disavow any atmospheric science, had one goal - to learn how the two terms get interpreted by the American public, said lead researcher Anthony Leiserowitz, a research scientist at Yales School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. The findings are based on two nationally representative surveys of more than 2,600 American adults conducted between November and January.

‘Global Warming Fraud’
They’ve kept “climate change” in reserve since the late 80s when the UN founded the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

If there was anything to it they would have stuck with global warming ,but it’s total Fake so they have to keep changing the name
“Global Warming” - on the one hand, it’s more attention-getting; on the other, it’s falsifiable. Best stick to the generalities or founder on the rocks of real data.

“study finds that sort of verbal switcheroo carries weight when Americans use or hear global warming versus climate change.
Global warming is scarier, yet much easier to disprove. Climate change is almost impossible to disprove yet doesn’t give the much needed scare. Decisions, decisions...
What did the study cost and who paid for it?

Climate change. Since climate is a non-static system, no matter what happens they’re somewhat correct.
since the climate is always changing we need an ongoing climate tax to keep it within reasonable boundaries.
Then we’ll add a 10% sur tax to hold back the tide and reduce solar activity.
