Global Warming to Climate Change

Has anyone noticed the change in media diction over the past 12 months or so from “global warming” to “climate change”?  Seems like I rarely hear the former term now.  If the change in coverage I perceive is real, a statistical survey would be interesting.  Is the change initiated by the media or by those feeding information to the media?  Was there some epochal speech I missed that catalyzed this change?  For many global warming opponents, is this kind of a change from “risky scheme” to “well, yeah”?
