Climate Change is used to deflect away from environmental pollution , resource depletion, habitat destruction, deforestation, etc.

"There's snow outside my door right now. There's no global warming."
Contrary to your anecdotal superstitious moronic BS, here's a little bit of science:
Earth’s 2016 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern recordkeeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Globally-averaged temperatures in 2016 were 1.78 degrees Fahrenheit (0.99 degrees Celsius) warmer than the mid-20th century mean. This makes 2016 the third year in a row to set a new record for global average surface temperatures.

More scientific facts:
Scientists agree, man made global warming caused by burning fossil fuels is real:
1) Depending on exactly how you measure the expert consensus, it’s somewhere between 90% and 100% that agree humans are responsible for climate change, with most of our studies finding 97% consensus among publishing climate scientists.
2) The greater the climate expertise among those surveyed, the higher the consensus on human-caused global warming.
The 97% consensus on global warming
The Overwelming and growing scientific Consensus
The thing is these scientists and the people at NASA are smarter than you. Now I know its difficult to accept when people are so much smarter than you. But try to understand something. When you were struggling to solve for x in algebra class, climate scientists and the people at NASA were solving those problems in their heads. They knew more than their teachers did long before anything came out of their teacher's mouths. Here, I will help you with the big bad scientific words. The word "average" is a mathematical concept. "Math" is the study of numbers and their relationships. Here's the mathematical definition of "average":
Average – Definition – How to Calculate Average
So listen all you knuckle draggers. Lets just stop the anecdotal superstitious moronic BS. The scientific consensus is global warming caused by burning fossil fuels is real.

And scientists are never wrong, nor do they ever have ulterior motives.

I agree, tell people a tax is needed to combat global warming and they will scatter away like cockroaches. Put all emphasis on climate change and people will ignore both the pollution aspect AND the global warming aspect (when taking the tax angle into perspective). Kill two birds with one stone.
