The label only exists to simplify the concept, but the problem is that the concept is oversimplified. "Global warming" was never a thing. "Climate change", however, is the more accurate label. And anyone who disagrees with hard science and isn't familiar with hard science should have absolutely zero say in the matter. "It's cold, therefore global warming is a Communist conspiracy"?! What?!
Meh. How dumb does someone have to be to need to have the term "climate change" simplified? It suggests that the climate is changing. Pretty straightforward. And why did they chose the term "global warming" before changing their minds to "climate change". Did someone just flip a coin to chose between "global warming" and "global cooling". It's like saying someone had a heart attack when really they had a stroke because you don't think the listener is smart to understand when you say "he's in the hospital".
Besides climate change has been around a long time before people were. Not saying we aren't having an impact on, *ahem* "climate change" but if the government was so concerned about our impact on climate, maybe they shouldn't have put the kibosh on electric cars for example. Seems at least a little contradictory.
