Quote of the day: Climate change vs global warming

If [global mean surface temperature] goes up a lot, the impacts cannot be small, but if [global mean surface temperature] does not go up a lot, the impacts may still be large. –Michael Tobis

Climate change is a more accurate term for what we are doing to the climate system, but the tyranny of Google (aka the fact that more people search for global warming than climate change), means I typically use the term global warming.
