Lexicon Shift Alert: global warming gets another name change
Back in 2010, I pointed out that White House science adviser John Holdren had made a shift in naming conventions for the twice renamed “global warming”.
It seems that another shift in the lexicon has occurred, again at the White House.
Organizing for Action, President Obama’s campaign machine declared Tuesday that there was a new name.
The Washington Times picked up on this shift, and I’ve updated the graphic to reflect the new name. There’s also a poll to choose/predict the next name after this one:
Choose Your Favourite BIG SCARY NAME For Phase Four In Climate Fearmongering
Terrestrial Thermoclime Transmogrification Apocalypse
Planet Death Watch
Climate Derangement Syndrome
White Man's Wind
Irritable Climate Syndrome
Climate Gone Wild
I like Irritable Climate Syndrome, because it equates climate science research output with an unpredictable bowel movement.
