UK Guardian Changes Style Guide On ‘Climate Change’ To Be Even More Unhinged And Alarmist

Good news, my style guide won’t be changing. They’ll still be “warmists” and the “Cult of Climastrology”, with the more general terms moonbat and unhinged tools thrown in here and there, and perhaps “alarmist”

Delingpole: Guardian Invents Scary New Name for ‘Global Warming’ — ‘Global Heating’

The Guardian newspaper has decided to change the name ‘global warming’ because it doesn’t sound scary enough.

From now on, the Guardian‘s editor-in-chief Kath Viner has ordered, ‘global warming’ is to be called ‘global heating.’

This, apparently, will more closely reflect the “scale of the climate and wildlife crises” now afflicting Mother Gaia.

The use of the names ‘climate science denier’ or ‘climate denier’ for ‘climate sceptic’ makes a nonsense of Ms Viner’s claim that the Guardian is trying to be more ‘scientifically precise and rooted in facts’.

For a start, it presupposes that ‘climate science’ is a field with a fixed view of how climate works – which simply isn’t true. There are lots of competing theories on what it is that drives climate. While climate alarmists insist that recent warming is primarily man-made and driven by anthropogenic CO2, many other respected scientists believe it is due to a combination of factors, ranging from solar activity to cycles in the deep ocean.

There is, in essence, no such thing is a ‘climate science denier’ because not even the most ardent sceptic denies the existence of ‘climate science’.

There are a few who do deny that there has been any climatic changes since 1850 (end of Little Ice Age), but, they are a tiny minority. The rest of us will say there have been changes, it’s just that we’re skeptical of the Warmist position that the slight increase in global temperatures (1.5F since 1850) is mostly/solely caused by Mankind, particularly its use of fossil fuels causing “carbon pollution.”

That said, would not those who claim to Believe but fail to act in their own lives be denying their own beliefs?

From the UK Guardian

“We want to ensure that we are being scientifically precise, while also communicating clearly with readers on this very important issue,” said the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner. “The phrase ‘climate change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.”

“Increasingly, climate scientists and organisations from the UN to the Met Office are changing their terminology, and using stronger language to describe the situation we’re in,” she said.

In other words, even more unhinged. You be you, Guardian.

    Just more of the usual debasing and misusing of the English language* by leftists to indoctrinate the masses. It works really well with a decades long propaganda program used in the public school system.

    *Are we still speaking English or has that too been abandoned in favor of our “vibrant and diverse” overlords?
