make it heat

The head of Harvard's center on science and technology policy, Dr John Holden, is fed up with 'global warming' as a phrase. He says, 'We’ve been almost anesthetized by this term.' He suggests 'global climate disruption'.

James Lovelock's preferred choice is 'global heating'. He told the New York Times:

'Warming is something that’s kind of cozy and comfortable. You think of a nice duvet on a cold winter’s day. Heating is something you want to get away from.'
