    3. 3. It should NOT be confused with climate change
    4. 4. <ul><li>GLOBAL WARMING </li></ul><ul><li>is the increase of the Earth’s average surface temperature due to a build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. </li></ul><ul><li>CLIMATE CHANGE </li></ul><ul><li>is a broader term that refers to long-term changes in climate, including average temperature and precipitation. </li></ul>Difference
