Sad news out of Antarctica yesterday. Big ice shelf busting up.

Weather and Climate not only are spelled differently but represent two different things describing conditions. One is the right now the other trends in an overview or overall.
""Weather is the state of the atmosphere, to the degree that it is hot or cold, wet or dry, calm or stormy, clear or cloudy.""
""Climate is the statistics of weather, usually over a 30-year interval. It is measured by assessing the patterns of variation in temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind, precipitation, atmospheric particle count and other meteorological variables in a given region over long periods of time.""

""Climate differs from weather, in that weather only describes the short-term conditions of these variables in a given region.""

But what does wiki know? When the Donald is the smartest man alive!
