Global warming newsmaker gets readers heated up

"Climate change" sounds almost neutral. "Global warming" is a much hotter phrase. Either can now easily stir up debate among CNET News.com readers.

Right now, you can at least see the climate change debate by reading today's newsmaker with Stanford University scientist Terry Root.
