Trump's PC Police Purging The Term 'Climate Change'

The anti-freedom Trump team is ordering scientists not to use accurate terms about the environment. They are instructing them to use more confusing terms instead. In particular the term "climate change" is out.

are you SURE it is not just him telling people that work UNDER him to not use that term? I am sure barack did the same thing a number of times. It does come off as odd...

Well, let's go back a couple of years.
During the Obama administration, the term 'Global Warming' was discarded when it beame obvious that the globe wasn't warming for a signifiacnt amount of time (at that time it was 17 yrs, we now have passed 20 yrs without significant warming in the 'global temperature'-trend)
So the Obama administartion replaced global warming with climate change, because who can 'deny' climate change, it has been changing ever since the earth started rotating around the sun.

And even when Obama still was in charge, there were hints that there was a new 'directive' that the term 'climate change' should be replaced by 'Severe Weather Disruptions' as, like I said before, climate change is something that has happened in the past and will happen in the future, regardless of if there are any humans on this planet or not.

The whole global warming/climate change/severe weather disruptions issue is a political construct to give the general public a bad feeling about their CO2 producing activities, so their threshold lowers to pay for their alledged destructive behaviour.

To give an example; in 2016 German tax payers payed 58 billion Euro's 'Umweltsteurer' (environmental tax), which is 8.2% of the total German tax revenue.

Source: here on the website of the German Federal Office of Statistics.

It has become a significant player in the German Federal Budget.
And many people are not able to pay for their electricity bills anymore. It has become too expensive due to this bullshit 'global warming' issue.

the term Climate Change is wonky. It is used too many different ways. (a little like immigration is).

some use it as a means to insult "climate deniers" but that is not what is in many cases (in my case) what is being denied.

As ALWAYS I strive to consider issues from many points of view (and I get called out over it)...

to me the question is not is there climate change? or even is it man made? or even is it reversible?

But something more like this: is it man made, can it be reversed, do we have any idea how to do so without costing more than it is worth (which also speaks to how bad is it really). and maybe the biggest issue I see can we convince enough of the world to go along?


So when I deny it...I am basically expressing skepticism that it is man made, catastrophic, and reversible and worth the cost and something we can get enough support for to make the necessary changes.

and the idea that it is unquestionable, settled science flys in the face of one of the most basic principals of science.

Always a treat to be reminded by morons that we live in a conspiracy-free world.
