You never have understood the relationship between global warming and climate change, though.
Or any other aspect of climate change, sadly.
Just in a (possibly vain) attempt to make this clear to you:
- “Global warming” refers to the overall average heat content of the atmosphere rising.
- The atmosphere does not heat evenly. Insolation (the amount of sunlight that reaches the surface of the earth) varies from latitude to latitude and season to season.
- The fact that the atmosphere heats unevenly, plus the fact that the heat content is rising in many places, so there is an increasing difference between regions, disrupts wind and precipitation patterns.
- THAT is “climate change.”
- Climate change is thus an expected effect of global warming. And what it means, in practice, is seasonal anomalies and increasing numbers of both cold and hot “extreme events”, as formerly stable patterns of climate are disrupted.
…. I hope this is a helpful brief understanding for some, anyway.
