We examine the word climate and how it is used in relation to sustainability. We tease out the meaning of the term Climate Change and distinguish it from ‘climate of change’ and a ‘climate for change’. We distinguish between Climate change denial and skepticism. We explain ‘climate control’ in relation to buildings. What is the difference between climate and environment? We caution about the use of the adjectives climatic and climactic.
