  Just a word on the words "weather" and "climate". Here science fails

This two words "weather" and "climate" originate in the layman sphere and are layman expression about observed, experienced, and expected conditions in the atmosphere. It can comprise one or several component, like temperature, clouds, precipitation and presumably up to two hundred or more classification, meaning, and explanation. As the life of everybody is very depended on weather and climatic conditions from childhood to death, both expressions have a great emotional component. Nothing is fixed, and the use may vary from one thought, or discussion, or day to another thought, discussion or day. This aspect is highlighted in the Glossary of the American Meteorological Society: "Weather is the state of the atmosphere, mainly with respect to its effects upon life and human activities", but without mentioning the personal component of each individual sufficiently.
