The climate is the weather over a longer period of time. In a given geographical region, the climate varies over time. For example, Scandinavia has been through a number of ice ages over the years (the last one ending about 10000 years ago). The climate also varies over smaller periods of time, giving "small ice ages" and heat periods.

Right now, we are in a period of global warming.
