Home sweat home

Once I read one small article called Home sweat home and I didn't understand why this is called in this way.

In this article the main thing is Climate change and its "supporters", namely 2 men who had a lot of struggles which they come across while raising people's awareness to climate change that, of course, effects the whole planet.

And, can you give information about why this article is named in this way.

    Without knowing the author's mind, and without access to the article, I can only guess that it's a play on words about how global warming increases temperatures and makes people sweat.

This is a pun, a joke exploiting the fact that the words "sweet" and "sweat" sound alike. It is about how global warming would increase the temperature of our home, the Earth, and make us sweat. It will change our home from "sweet" to "sweaty".

It is fairly common to use puns and other forms of wordplay in headlines. The combination of a familiar phrase with an unfamiliar twist is intended to make you curious and want to read the rest of the article.

    "Sweet" and "sweat" don't really sound alike - the vowel is different. But they're similar enough to make the wordplay work.
