"What we know about climate change is that heat waves in California and throughout the world are going to become more severe and more intense," said Rupa Basu, the study's lead author and an epidemiologist at the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. "With that, we're realizing this might implicate more health effects" from future temperatures.So, what they are trying to do is get rid of the word "weather" because this connotes greater transience and variability. The word CLIMATE connotes the fact that you are STUCK with it.
But wait! Here in Houston, Texas we're seeing unseasonably LOW temperatures and lower humidity. The CLIMATE here has been cooler. And I sure hope it is PERMANENT!
