Climate Portal

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has created a climate portal as an attempt to organize the sources and kinds of climate information. 

Here is a good summary:  About NOAA Climate Services Portal

Climate change and global warming

Climate change definition: a long-term change in the earth's climate, especially a change due to an increase in the average atmospheric temperature: Melting glaciers imply that life in the Arctic is affected by climate change. (Dictionary.com)

Global warming: an increase in the earth's atmospheric and oceanic temperatures widely predicted to occur due to an increase in the greenhouse effect resulting especially from pollution (Merriam Webster).
