Once a term that dominated newspaper headlines and environmental discourse, "global warming" is now heard far less frequently. Many may assume global warming has been rebranded as "climate change," but the two are not one and the same. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, global warming refers exclusively to the Earth's rising surface temperature, while climate change includes global warming but also its side effects. Such side effects include the melting of the world's glaciers and the growing frequency of drought and heavier rainstorms. Global warming is also used most often to refer to warming caused by humans, while climate change is a term used when discussing environmental changes that are human-caused or natural.
