I just KNEW they would do this one day, and I'm kicking myself for not predicting it online someplace.
The phrase they had was plenty vague enough and broad enough to cover anything that could possibly happen. But Nooooooo......they had to be even more vague, just in case the word "change" was too precise.
John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, says that the term "global warming" is "a dangerous misnomer” that should be replaced with “global climate disruption."You bet your ass the term "global warming" is dangerous. You see, there's a good chance that it could get cold. What would happen to all the Cap'N'Tax funding then? What would happen to all the Green Energy wealth transfer schemes?
At the Environmental Protection Agency's 40th celebration of the Clean Air Act on Tuesday, Holdren said, "I think one of the failures of the scientific community was in embracing the term 'global warming'. Global warming is in fact a dangerous misnomer." And in a speech last week in Norway, echoing remarks he made at a 2007 speech at Harvard University, Holdren said the term "global climate disruption" should be used instead of "global warming."Holdren has skipped the equally offensive (and perhaps dangerous) term "climate change" altogether, kind of like some people skipped using the somewhat weird term "Afro-American" when it was politically correct for about two weeks (between "Black" and "African American") in the late 1970's or early 1980's.
So....From now on, anyone on this site wishing to discuss
All other phrases are too risky.
