Climate Change Denier

A Climate Change Denier (usually just Denier) is a derogatory term used to describe a Climate Change Skeptic. Usually a sign that a debate on climate change has degraded into name calling and none science based discussion.

The implication is that the 'Denier' is denying the clearly evident facts supporting man made climate change; where as what they do dispute is the link between mans influence on the climate and the changes in the climate being seen, and how much of that change is purely due to natural processes.

Climate Change Housing

Climate Change housing refers to housing that has been designed to operate in a way that minimizes its impact in contributing to climate change through reducing the man made component of climate change.

Note: This does not automatically mean that a house so designed is 'green' or 'eco' over the longer term, rather it is focused on minimizing its man made climate change impact first; which can lead to it been green if done correctly. Basically one does not automatically lead to the other.

Note: Beware of carbon 'get rich quick' schemes; i.e. solar power offsetting, etc as these often only work with costly rebates (which a lot of governments are now pulling out of supplying on mass due to them not being financially sustainable over the longer term).

Climate Change Skeptic

A Climate Change Skeptic is someone who believes, in the context of Climate Change, that the human influence on the climate has been dramatically overplayed compared to natural processes and other external influences (such as the Sun).

Note: It does not mean they do not believe that the climate changes, rather that the amount of that change due to human activity is over emphasized and too 'precise' given the limited time (a few hundred years) we have had to measure the climate compared to the age of the climatic system (millions of years).
