16 commonly asked questions about climate change, answered by our friends at @eesionline:

The terms climate change and global warming are often used interchangeably, but climate change refers to both the rise in global temperatures because of human activities and the many impacts this rise has on the planet—such as more intense and frequent droughts and storms, melting glaciers and ice sheets, rising sea levels, warming seas (which can cause coral reef bleaching and disrupt the marine food chain), and ocean acidification (see question 7). Climate change can also refer to natural fluctuations in the Earth’s average temperature between cold periods (ice ages) and warm periods.
