Catchy Climate Newspeak

by William Yeatman on November 10, 2008

First, it was called “global warming.” But then it stopped warming, so alarmists changed it to “climate change.” But that’s insufficiently scary, especially when it goes head to head with the much more ominous sounding “financial crisis" that has relegated global warming/climate change to the backburner over the last two months.

Obviously, a new, more frightening label was needed. Cue Al Gore, who yesterday wrote an oped in the New York Times in which he never referred to global warming/climate change, but instead to the “climate crisis.”
