I'm not sure we need two different tags. Most everyone uses the verbiage climate change and not global warming nowadays (at least in politics). I'm not sure there's a good case for having separate tags for political discussion purposes.


Climate change =/= global warming.

Global warming refers only to the Earth’s rising surface temperature, while climate change includes warming and the “side effects” of warming—like melting glaciers, heavier rainstorms, or more frequent drought. Said another way, global warming is one symptom of the much larger problem of human-caused climate change.

    While this can be scientifically true, this make no difference specific to Politics (and Politics.StackExchange). If we keep two separate tags, an arbitrary Q will either have both tags or none. – bytebuster for Long Usernames Jun 4 '17 at 13:46
  • What are you proposing with this answer? That we keep both tags? Or that we should merge climate-change in to global-warming (rather than the reverse)? – user11249 Jun 4 '17 at 19:11
