Harvard Names “Climate Emergency” Word Of The Year

Who wants to tell them?

Say, will Harvard ban the use of fossil fuels to transport the kids to school? How about their athletic department? How about electricity for the school? From the link

Every year the publisher of the august Oxford English Dictionary peers into the zeitgeist and selects a “word of the year” whose sudden appearance or rising popularity tells us something about our collective mood or obsessions. The last three, for instance, have been toxic, youthquake, and post-truth. Take from those what you will.

This year’s word — in actuality a phrase — is “climate emergency.” The publisher Oxford Dictionaries said the choice was prompted by a 100-fold increase in usage over the previous year, a rise that reflected the rising heat of environmental activism and the growing guilt and angst over our role in the problem.

Along with climate emergency, Oxford selected a short list of other environment-related terms whose usage also grew noticeably. That includes some that will seem familiar to many — climate action, climate denial, climate crisis, net zero, extinction, and plant-based — and others newer to the tongue — eco-anxiety, ecocide, flight shame, and global heating, whose usage soared 18,358 percent.

They should have chose “Trump Derangement Syndrome”. Or, how about, climahypocrite? Anyhow, they asked several faculty members, including Gina McCarthy…yes, the one who worked for Obama

What I take away from this is that climate change has reached a turning point in the public consciousness. In 2019, people all over the world began demanding actions and solutions. We don’t have to worry so much about whether we use “climate emergency,” “climate crisis,” or “global heating.”

Yet, the majority of people, including climate cultists, refuse to spend even $10 a month on the “climate emergency”, nor change their own lives. Go figure.

    Shows how smart they are at Haavahd. That’s a phrase, not a word.

    • Kye says:

      Ya beat me to it. Only Harvard idiots would consider “climate emergency” a word. They really don’t learn how to think at all in the Ivy League, do they?

    You gotta love how the leftist policies like those Fredo and John promote work out in the real world.

    In case you wondering how things are going in totally Democrat Communist California, here’s the latest.

    San Francisco just lost the Oracle conference, which was estimated to bring in over $64 million in revenue for the city and local businesses. Instead, the event will now be held in Las Vegas, which apparently ranks higher on the “lack of poo in the streets” scale than the once beautiful west coast city.

    “Oracle stated that their attendee feedback was that San Francisco hotel rates are too high,” the email, which was viewed by CNBC, said. “Poor street conditions was another reason why they made this difficult decision.”

    The SFTA, a private nonprofit organization that promotes San Francisco tourism, said it’s issuing a cancellation bulletin, covering five days and over 62,000 room nights in October 2020, October 2021 and September 2022.

    “The estimated economic impact of each of the above is $64,000,000, a huge loss for our city,” the email said.

    Trump 2020 with any luck the leftist cult will commit mass suicide ala Jim Jones.

    • John says:

      Wow !! 64 million dollars is a lot of money, isn’t it ??
      Well yes, and no
      Total tourist revenue for San Francisco 10 billion
      So let’s go the math
      10,000,000,000
      64,000,000
      9,036,000,000
      That is less than 1%!!!
      And my guess is it will be made up by others
      Hope this math doesn’t “trigger” you
      Do you have a safe space ?

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Dildo is not savvy enough to understand that cities compete for major conferences and conventions (spittle-spiked hatred like Dildo’s and The Wiz’s disrupts one’s higher cognitive abilities).

      Now Dildo is calling for mass suicide of those with whom he disagrees.

      All the right has is hate.

  3. Professor hale says:

    Merry Christmas, one and all. Even Jeff and John. May you each continue to enjoy the great blessings that life in this great nation offers; A nation founded by people who worshiped Jesus Christ.

  4. Kye says:

    Merry Christmas to all you guys and Happy Kwanzaa to Fredo. Thanks to Teach for a great site.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Happy Holidays, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Hanukkah and a very Merry Christmas to all!!

    In St. Louis today, the Jewish and Muslim communities got together for their annual Jewish/Muslim Day of Service preparing “Care” packages for the less fortunate.

    Christians do it all the time.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      No doubt some Christians reach out to Jews and Muslims in the spirit of acceptance.

      • formwiz says:

        Christians do it regardless of race, religion, or nationality.

      • gitarcarver says:

        I for one can’t understand why Jeffery is trying to make a point using people he considers to be “delusional.”

        Oh wait, I do understand.

        He is trying to start more hatred amongst people of faith.

        With the lives of those on the left filled with hatred, they continue to export that hatred.

        After all, all the left has is hate.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Lonely Billy Bob of FL is a husk of a man left only with hate.

          But Merry Christmas.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Does Lonely Billy Bob feel that cooperative understanding and acceptance between Jews and Muslims is a bad thing? Is it because Christians will eventually be an American minority?

          • Kye says:

            What benefit is there to America or our progeny for Christians to be a minority in America? Do you think Mohammedans will be as kind and generous to the rest of us as Christians are? Or do you like the idea of modern slavery, systemic pedophilia, murder of adulterers and homosexuals?
            Perhaps you think the Mohammedans will defer to the communists and we see how “just” and fair life in communist countries is.

            Face it. All you have for America, Christians, whites, Jews and non-leftists is hate, hate, hate!

            Trump 2020 Keep America Christian or end up like North Korea.

    TDS???
    Lol
    Teach do you still believe in your Donald’s promise that Mexico will pay for The Great Wall?
    I guess maybe you also really do still believe in Santa Claus

    • Kye says:

      In case you missed it (since the Fake News tends not to report good news) the Mexican government is signing a new trade deal which in effect WILL PAY FOR THE WALL 100 TIMES OVER. Something no Dem or Rep has been able to do. Mission accomplished!

      Trump 2020 Thanks for your service Mr. President!
