Global Heating
I've always preferred 'global heating' -- for the reasons given. 'Doesn't sound quite as cosy.

Further points
I think the first person to flag up the term 'global warming' was Mikhail I. Budyko in 1969 [See http://www.agu.org/pubs/crossref/2008/2008EO510006.shtml ]

There's also the point that 'global warming' (or heating) is a more inclusive term for the damage we're doing to our planet; whereas 'climate change' is only one of the damaging effects we're causing, The other major damage is 'ocean acidification' which is not a result of climate change, though it has the same root cause -- fossil fuel emissions (mainly CO2).
