They changed the term because morons would say 'but winter still happens?!?". The term is just as accurate, but for the people who never understood the concept in the first place, I guess it would seem like deception.
Those are the people that think "global warming" and now "climate change" could be witnessed from their front porch. I remember James Inhoff brought a snowball into Congress somehow believing he could prove the entire planets' climate was right outside the door. But what I remember most is the people laughing at him.

Your democratically elected government has the right to tax you for anything - you then have the right to vote them out of office... that’s the beauty of democracy.

There is plenty of evidence that vaccines save lives and are far safer than catching Covid.... you have any real evidence to refute this, I’m all ears
If your democratically elected government taxes you for 100% of your income and confiscates your property, there is a good chance you won't live long enough to vote them out of office.

I don't see any beauty in that, surprisingly you do.

For those saying mass extinction is a hyperbole - well really
What is mass extinction - the loss of biodiversity a rate greater than the creation of ,
We are now in Human phase of the world . During our rise we have loss lots of easily to see bigger animals - birds and mammals etc with little or no replacement .
We are losing life at a 100-1000 times the creation ( yes science is not always exact )
Climate change is having some large effects in specific spots - we are asking species that breed slowly to adapt in decades . If a species on an Island lives on a temperate mountain - where can it go ? - it mostly doesn't it dies .
We are getting less biodiversity on reefs etc as certain corals polyps can handle bleaching better .
Bee species etc are declining etc etc
Add in loss of habitat, broken access , China building roads everywhere to allow more resource gathering . over fishing etc
Mass Extinctions is predicted to dramatically increase . Humans are adapting - growing certain frost required fruit like apples further north or south . People can now plant tropical fruit like passionfruit etc in their backyard .

Awaiting evidence that we are not in a Mass extinction event caused by man - from the other side .
Fruitless wait - as your words are empty soulless husks of screams of fear ( nah nah nah - I can't hear you - if we don't test or measure as the Trump/GOP wanted to implement we can not have a problem)- Yes the last was Insane - The science is not there , we need more science - let's defund the science . You know the planet exploiters - I need that private jet , I need another billion are NOT Arguing in Good Faith

But they won’t... because... people won’t vote for them if they do... that’s the beauty of living in a democracy... governments don’t do too many unpopular things - cause they want to win the next election...

Which is also a problem, of course.... cause the right thing to do isn’t always popular... hence the mess the US has made with this pandemic...

Your logic is flawed, there is no such thing as belief in climate change just following the evidence, climate change deniers choose to not follow the evidence. No faith is involved.
You should look up the definition of belief. When you use words incorrectly it really undermines your attempts at superiority.

Basic language studies would have helped you know that when he said "there is no such thing as belief in climate change" he was 100% correct because there is nothing to believe, or not believe. Facts don't need belief, bullshit does.

Anyone can "believe" the sun is bright because there is a little chipmunk running on a rubber band inside it. Facts and the truth prove otherwise, and all they require is acceptance of the obvious, not belief.

Oxford:
Belief - "trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something."

Facts are not needed to believe.

When your facts are fabricated (as is the case with anthropogenic global warming) then you're just using lies to push an agenda.

And once again. Prove your point. I can prove mine.
Just this once. Point us to how you came to the conclusion that the"facts are fabricated." What radio show or dead soul right-wing TV personality do you get your science from? Show us what causes your, umm, "thoughts."

The vast majority of people take such statements on faith without actually examining the evidence. It's just a question of who they place their faith in.

Really proof reach the gold std over 2 years ago - so that means less that 1 millionth of a chance not being so - I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't a whole 3 or 4 sigma levels higher now.
Anyway Occam's Razor - which I think you know - would heavily imply anthropogenic global warming. Now CO2 is not disputed to be a greenhouse gas - this fact has been shown for over 120 years - no one has refuted it .
Temperature started to rise over the expected baseline after the industrial revolution started . The trend now is higher yearly averages , new records going forward - supposedly 100/1000 year events now more common.
The paid blogs websites etc contra arguments put out were extremely poor - they were shot down so much they only get repeated by the gullible and stupid - stuff like volcanoes which normally bring cooling .
Some of the later ones - The world was warmer in Roman times - no Rome was warmer then ( not the whole world ) - it's sun, planet movements- papers trying to proof this have been withdrawn - being riddled with basic errors of science .
All these amazing scientists put up year after year to disprove man-made climate have amounted to nothing . Their models are hopelessly wrong.
When you have a true sceptic - they invariably with research find out it's real - then you guys forget about them - least you don't call them RINOS .
Now is just some mysterious nature cycle - that no one knows what causes it - it's so unusual - as we should be in a cooling phase - and the world has never got this warm so quickly for a very very long time.
Most deniers have moved on going on about the world isn't getting warmer , or it's man-made - they are using other stalling tactics.

I find deniers to be incredibly dishonest . I have yet to see EVEN ONE admit they got that world is getting warmer wrong - I bet Psycros you was screaming it wasn't true - that scientists were massaging data , using 1998 a particularly warm year - Everyone else knows you normalised data - for say ocean depth of sensor etc - it's something you learn when you are 15 at school.
I have never had a serious discussion with a denier - they say a sound bite - I counter it - They shut up as they understand nothing - so can't argue .
That's why they are dishonest - least the flat-earthers keep trying - even if they can't explain the midnight sun , or lack of sun at midday at the poles
