The way we have been referring to climate change has evolved over the years.  

If articles were written recently they will use the term “climate change” but those written a few years back will use “global warming.” (example search “climate change in SIRs and it brings up nothing… but search “global warming” and it finds stuff) Another good term is: “greenhouse effect”

Also try using the words: “green” “sustainability” “conservation” “carbon footprint” “environment*”  

You can combine searches with the operator AND. So you might search: paper company AND conservation, or island nations AND climate change, or EVEN conservationists AND auto industry. (examples in Science in context) or auto industry and “climate change” (example in EBSCO),
