Posted on 05/27/2014 1:50:03 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
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.
No kidding, Global Warming Fraud.
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.
“Leftist Power Grab”

“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?
“Global Warming Or Possibly Cooling, Whichever Would Cause More People To Vote To Give Us More Money”

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.
Gotta agree, given my Freeper name.
Or Globull Warming Shakedown.
It is hard to pin the polar vortex on global warming, even though the leftist tried to do so. I think this winter got more and more people skeptical about global warming. Eventually people can only take so much flimflam before they realize they are being scammed.
“Horse Manure. “
I think Minitrue has changed it to "Climate Disruption", or perhaps it has always been Climate Disruption. Keeping up with prolefeed is very difficult.
I prefer BULLSHAT!

Horse or bull....it’s still crap.
#Bring our global cooling back!
Actually, the proper term is: horse sh*t.
“The planet has a fee-ver,” Al Gore.
IMHO, neither term is correct. I prefer weather. Always there. Always changing. Some people live where it sucks, some people live where it's nice.
The most overblown hoax in the History of Man. Damned expensive, too.
‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Change?’: Which Is the Proper Term?’
If it’s cold outside it’s called “climate change” since weather isn’t climate.
If it’s hot outside it’s called “global warming” because weather is climate.
Climate change is a long term fact of life. Is it man made this next time is an unanswered question with precious little evidence other than increased CO2.
Eco-Fraud For Great Socialist Victory!
> ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Change?’: Which Is the Proper Term?
The proper term is Carbon Credit Hoax and Swindle.
‘Climate Change’ doesn’t sound as ominous as ‘Global Warming’.
Here in TX we would very much welcome climate change if it included more rain and lower temperatures more like what they have in San Diego.
Global warming sounds pretty stupid particularly after the recent record breaking cold this past winter. However by renaming it climate change the propaganda can be fashioned to show how any weather phenomenon can be attributed to “climate change”. However, everything is still tied to the myth that increasing CO2 levels due to humans are warming the planet. That myth must be perpetuated because it is the key to greater government control.
COLD DAYS-Climate Change
HOT DAYS-Global Warming
The correct term is the Freaking Retarded Asinine Unbelievable Deception
When we have extended periods of warmer than normal temperatures, they use "global warming". When we have extended periods of cooler than normal temperatures, they switch to "climate change">
It's quite the semantic racket they have going........
