Climate change is the long-term change of global or regional weather patterns, like temperature and rain, and its impacts on environments, like the ocean and forests.
Global warming is the long-term rise in temperature of Earth’s climate system monitored since the pre-industrial period (between 1850-1900) due to human activities, largely fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth’s atmosphere.
