The alarmists’ predictions of rapidly rising global temperatures have repeatedly failed to come true, which is why the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change dramatically scaled back its predictions of future temperature increases a few years ago.
Thus, the alarmists shifted to “climate change,” a hopelessly flexible concept that can be assigned to any untoward weather event.
A new twist has swept the global warming movement lately, especially since they had to admit that their own data showed that there was a “hiatus” on the warming, as illustrated in the 2014 IPCC report; their data showed an actual cooling over the last 10 years.
The new term: “climate change” is now taking over, such that unusual events of any kind, like the record snowfall in Boston, can be blamed on the burning of fossil fuels without offering any concrete scientific data as to how one could cause the other. -Mike van Biezen
A new change to the AP Stylebook, a style and usage guide used by news organizations, allows the terms “global warming” and “climate change” to be used “interchangeably,” though the Associated Press considers climate change to be “more accurate scientifically.” The new entry on the divisive terms were unveiled on Friday, sparking fiery online dissent and accusations that the style guide is following the lead of other climate change activists who stopped using the term “global warming” when the figures on rising temperatures were no longer adding up.
