NounEdit

climate change (usually uncountable, plural climate changes)

  1. Natural large-scale and long-term change in the Earth's climatic system, as brought about by ice ages.
  2. Large-scale and long-term change in the Earth's climatic system produced by global warming; anthropogenic climate change.

Usage notesEdit

May be treated (in the sense “anthropogenic climate change”) as a synonym of global warming in informal contexts, particularly in regions where climate science is contested by political actors. This conflation is not widespread in scientific contexts, where it may be regarded as incorrect.
