Global Heating and/or Global Warming!

Posted by 4kilo on March 9, 2007

according to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Global warming is the observed increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s near-surface air and oceans in recent decades and its projected continuation.

I found the word ‘Global warming’ a bit vague and it only describes the situation on west were the temperature is normally cold and warming could mean mild temperature people could enjoy.On the contrary people who live in Africa and other part of the world the effect of ‘Global warming’ is an increase in temperature that would normally represent hot or hotter to hotter or hottest situation.This practically mean heating not warming.I personally believe representing this global climatic condition with a word ‘Global warming’ may have stolen some voices in the fight against ‘Global warming’.I think we need a word that precisely describes what ‘Global warming’ is really meant for!
