You know global warming is a naturally occuring event that has happened over the period of the Earth's life. It is also followed by global cooling. Mankind has seen some relatively minor weather during its time.
Climate Change has been studied for over a century, and has been called "Climate Change" since the beginning. "Global warming/cooling" are media spun terms. Climate change is another natural cycle, this is accepted by every scientist. Climate change is being amplified by humanity, this is accepted by 98% of all scientists (the last 2% working for oil companies).
Humanity is witnessing the worst weather and climate conditions on record. We are aiming at having more Co2 PPM than ever in the Earth's entire history. The oceans are becoming more acidic. Over forestation (such as the destruction of the amazon jungle) is resulting in fewer sinkholes for Co2 and other gases. Humanity completely dwarfs the pollution of all the worlds volcanoes.
Though in some places you might see records being broken in cold temperatures, over-all the Earth is warming.
p.s: There are solutions. However as time passes the solutions become more extreme and expensive.
