For our scientifically challenged fellow-citizens, it may hard to understand, but simply experiencing a few record-setting Snow Storms, does NOT automatically disprove the theory of Global Warming (aka Climate Change). Science doesn’t work that way. Science takes evidence. Science takes data. Science takes experiments – and lots and lots of Measuring. … It takes measuring of those boring things, called Facts.
The theory of Climate Change, views weather events from a long-term perspective. Climate varies from year to year. Decade to decade.
Climate is a generational phenomenon. (could be why the younger generation “gets it” — more so than the older.)
Weather, on the other hand, changes with the wind. Weather is a daily event. Weather is the background noise, upon which we plan our daily lives.
In other words, weather can change – a lot; over the course of a week, or over a Season. … Weather can even swing wildly over the course of a day sometimes – just ask anyone caught without rain gear, when unexpected downburst rolls in.
Weather is volatile. Weather is constantly changing. Climate not so much.
