I'm speaking sincerely here, I want your help. I don't think I've used the word "weather" when I meant say "climate," or vice versa. Please point out my error. i will apologize for any error made.
But to the broader question, "What is the difference between weather and climate?" NASA give us an answer:
The difference between weather and climate is a measure of time. Weather is what conditions of the atmosphere are over a short period of time, and climate is how the atmosphere "behaves" over relatively long periods of time.
But how many months constitute a "relatively long period of time?" I would appreciate an answer to help me avoid any possible mistakes in confusing them.

Wow. I keep seeing all these posts about Al Gore and other talking heads.
I can understand if someone disagrees with me but I'm always talking about scientists and quoting scientists. We're talking about scientists and scientific research. To bring up Al Gore and those types of people is well...retarded. Debate with science. This is what this is about now. Not talking heads or news pundits.

Maybe because Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for climate change. Like it or not he is your self-appointed spokesperson.

Maybe one day you can post evidence that isn't a youtube video or a hack skeptic site. I have a feeling I will be waiting awhile.

Gang dolphin rape, common mating practice in dolphin world.
Dolphins will very much sexually assault humans as well.
They also kill their own young. They are in general violent, intelligent, horny and social creatures. That combination is not a good one.
Also you can "educate" yourself and look up the same information I posted above. I also recommend doing google or Youtube search for "dolphin assaults humans".
Google the term “dolphin rape” and you’ll find countless references to male dolphins raping female dolphins, males raping other males, gang rape, and even dolphins raping humans. You might even find this hoax webpage claiming that dolphins regularly kidnap swimmers and take them to a “rape cave.” Head over to Google Scholar, however, and you will find exactly zero references to “dolphin rape” in the scientific peer-reviewed literature.
The reason for this discrepancy is quite simple: the term rape cannot be used to describe the kinds of behavior scientists have observed in dolphins. The central problem is that the legal definitions of rape include a lack of consent on the part of the victim, and we simply cannot know the extent to which dolphins or other animals are able to give consent. A non-consensual act like rape has “moral and legal implications” that are only relevant in the human world, which is why animal scientists (pretty much) stopped using the term altogether in the early 1980s. The correct scientific term to describe when a male aggressively restrains a female in order to mate is forced copulation. Forced copulation has been observed in ducks, lizards, monkeys, fruit flies, crickets, orangutans, chimpanzees, and countless other species.
But not dolphins.

You seem to be confused. The scientists are not governments. They are individuals who transcend national borders, and are worldwide in scope.

Not confused at all the government funds scientist, and has proposed a huge tax plan to fight Global Warming/Climate Change.
We make up a small fraction of the world population but are the ones asked to make the sacrifices, based on government funded climate change. Would there still be research if the government didn't fund it?
Not a single government prediction, not a single scientist prediction, not a single loud mouth leftie prediction has come true. Scientist can't agree, and the all mighty Al Gore the biggest hypocrite on the planet is the spokesman. Na not confused at all.
