The questions should be how does global warming relate to climate. Global warming refers to climate change in which the climate warms.


Climate is the weather that we expect to occur in general in a certain location. In central Canada, for example, we expect winters to be cold and clear with not too much precipitation.

Now, climates change based on changes to different variables in the atmosphere or of the geography of an area. Ice ages for example can occur due to variations in solar energy that reaches the Earth or from changes in ocean currents. etc.

Global warming refers to climates getting warmer around the globe. The global warming in the media nowadays more specifically refers to the accelerated warming trend of the climate due to human activity.
