Media Matters put out a video this past week with clips of all the recent FOX News mentions of a global warming name conspiracy. The Fox 'conspiracy' is that 'liberals' stopped calling it global warming and started calling it climate change. Little did they realize, apparently, that the man responsible for the partisan polarization  over the terminology of climate change vs. global warming is none other than FOX News contributor Frank Luntz . Watch:
As Media Matters points out:
Scientists use  "global warming" when speaking about the increase in average global surface temperatures. They use  "climate change" to refer to all the other disruptions that greenhouse gas emissions are causing -- from rising sea levels , to abruptly changing precipitation  patterns that increase the likelihood of droughts and wildfires  in certain areas and extreme flooding  in others, to acidifying oceans  that disturb the marine food web.
