Weather you see from your window, climate you see from a satellite

Bite‘Weather is what you see outside your window, climate is what you see from a satellite.’ – Scott Mandia, Professor of Physical Sciences at Suffolk County Community College, New York.
A political issue? That's like choosing sides over E = mc2

Bite"Climate change has taken on political dimensions...That's odd because I don't see people choosing sides over E = mc2 or other fundamental facts of science." — Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, Host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.
Doubt climate change is real? Then look at hottest years on record
