Global Warming Versus Climate Change

There is much discussion about global warming and climate change. These terms mean different things to different people. At Earth 911, our job is to present the best information we can on all sides of an issue and let you make up your own mind. We have compiled some basic information here to help you in your quest for good information to make informed decisions.

"Global warming" as it is commonly used refers to the increase of the Earth's average surface temperature, due to a build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. "Climate change" is used in a broader context that refers to long-term changes in climate, including average temperature and precipitation.
