    I have a stupid question...

    Considering that not a single legitimate climatologist has used the misnomer "global warming" for over a decade, and, instead, for very good reason, has talked about Climate Change, why do so many of the climate change deniers still insist on using the archaic, and incorrect MMGW ("Man Made Global Warming") label when discussing the issue?

    Don't they realise that it just makes them sound, and look, woefully outdated, and out of touch with the science of the last decade?

    I don't think that's a great source of anxiety to them. Apparently, ridiculing scientists and science believers is comforting. Even joyous.

    No need to plan to cope with the effects of climate change. Just point and laugh.

    Yea, it is a dumb question, considering those that use the outdated term ARE woefully outdated and out of touch.
    Hell, they're still bemoaning Benghazi and Obama's 8 year term, they bitch like Hillary won the damned election, they still want to revert back to the pre-civil rights era,
    they still think coal is the future, and so on....
    Crazy Regressives.

    For which, as usual, you have no rational response. I suspect that Idiocrat is probably closest to the truth. Maybe my question was unnecessary, because maybe the answer is as obvious as it seems: You guys are woefully out of touch with reality, and stuck in a decade long past. So, you are just not capable of processing the new information that has come along in the years since you just shut down your brains.

    Why'd the AGW cult change the name?

    I think its because they want to make Al Gore look dumb. He used the term over and over in his "Inconvenient Truth" and it was used a lot by the media at the time. Now that scientists have changed it to climate change, some want to mock it.. I have heard colleagues say "now that they know global warming is a lie, they changed the name to save face." They believe that.

    Global warming is another name for climate change. Either naming protocol is acceptable. It is about the earth warming and the results no matter what it is called.

    Both descriptions of the same thing are still accurate.

    Because science is apparently now political.

    Climate change is very real, but there's nothing we can really do about it. Maybe China can clean themselves up but in reality, climate change is out of our control
