Did Climate Scientists Change from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”? Heck No
As Sinclair shows:
1. The term “Climate Change” has been around longer than the term “Global Warming.”
2. Rather than climate scientists and those concerned with global warming steering us towards the term “climate change,” it was actually a key Republican pollster and linguist, Frank Luntz, who did so (counter to what many “global warming deniers” will tell you).
3. The attack on scientific consensus regarding global warming is political, based on the demands of certain members of the energy industry and business community (who can’t see past the end of their noses or budgets)….
Much better than I could summarize it, however, Peter Sinclair nails this topic (as he does with so many climate science myths).
