  •  The term "global warming" is so misconstrued. (1+ / 0-)

    In my opinion, the term should be avoided.  

    People in the Midwest, who experience 65F days in January and plants blooming a month early may be able to conceive of things warming.  But then they see TV footage of Europe in the grips of record-breaking, devastating cold and ice.  Boom!  There goes the warming "evidence".

    Climate change is much easier for most of us to wrap our minds around in trying to understand what's happening.

    As a sound bite, "Global Warming" is a misnomer. Climate changing...unusually warm in the Midwest while unusually cold in Europe...is a concept people on Main Street can grasp.
