White House: Global Warming Out, 'Global Climate Disruption' In

White House: Global Warming Out, 'Global Climate Disruption' In
Published September 16, 2010

From the administration that brought you "man-caused disaster" and "overseas contingency operation," another terminology change is in the pipeline.

The White House wants the public to start using the term "global climate disruption" in place of "global warming" -- fearing the latter term oversimplifies the problem and makes it sound less dangerous than it really is.

White House science adviser John Holdren urged people to start using the phrase during a speech last week in Oslo, echoing a plea he made three years earlier. Holdren said global warming is a "dangerous misnomer" for a problem far more complicated than a rise in temperature.

The call comes as Congress prepares to adjourn for the season without completing work on a stalled climate bill. The term global warming has long been criticized as inaccurate, and the new push could be an attempt to re-shape climate messaging for next year's legislative session.

"They're trying to come up with more politically palatable ways to sell some of this stuff," said Republican pollster Adam Geller, noting that Democrats also rolled out a new logo and now refer to the Bush tax cuts as "middle-class tax cuts."

He said the climate change change-up likely derives from flagging public support for their bill to regulate emissions. He said the term "global warming" makes the cause easy to ridicule whenever there's a snowstorm.

"Every time we're digging our cars out -- what global warming?" he said. "(Global climate disruption is) more of a sort of generic blanket term, I guess, that can apply in all weather conditions."

RUSH: Talking about losing the language. Now we're losing the language that they gave us! The director of the White House Office of Science, John Holdren, says global warming, is "a dangerous misnomer." We need to replace it with "global climate disruption." That means global warming ain't selling anymore.

I thought they already had “climate change” to cover their lies?!

I suppose they have rejected “gnome induced temperature modification” and “unicorn hot-making cold-making?”

A bottle filled with puke still contains the same thing no matter if they change the label.

This way, whichever way it goes, we're covered.

The thing of it is, there are trillions to be made unto perpetuity if they can drive this carbon offset gig home. They aren't going to let all that money be hostage to the weather. Hotter? Colder? Who knows? But there are always "disruptions", they come every year, its the one thing you can always depend on.

If you can convince people you are the solution to the weather, the possibilities are endless. Just keep inventing new boogy-men and keep selling those offsets as fast as your laser-printer can churn them out. Keep plenty of ink on hand so you never run out.

A “disruption” isn't a strong enough word. A rain storm is a disruption if you are playing some kind of sports, a light mist is a disruption if you are having a garden party.

A strong wind is a disruption if you are doing anything other than flying kites.

Good grief, they are in trouble, where is albore when you need him.

Keep giving the warmongers money until we have a constant temperature that is the same all year all around the world.

“We can only do it if you give us all your money!

What's a few trillion dollars? Chump change. Don't you want to help us promote the scam....er...emm...undisputable ...*aside*(what's a good word to say here...) ...ah yes “SETTLED SCIENCE!”

Yeah, that's the ticket. All the scientists, including Morgan Fairchild, have agreed that your SUV is ruining the planet. Strangely, it's the first time that Science has ever stopped debating a topic.

there is no need to search for answers. We have found them all when it comes to global warming....gnome heating...climate disruptors..whatever. The science is settled! the end. Period. Stifle yerself Edith.

Pay no attention to those NUTS that say the gnome induced thingamabob is not true!
Those 31,000 scientists are all crazy as loons. The founder of the Weather Channel, John Coleman, knows nothing!

Only we know! Only Al Gore knows that it's millions of degrees 2 kilometers beneath the earth's surface. No one else knows that. Ha!

So how dare you deniers try to tell us the truth!??!! The hubris!

We will tell you what the truth is and you'll like it!

Do it for the children. trust us. Have we ever lied to you?”

Imagine that, people actually expected global warming to warm the planet. Since that hasn’t happened they need a more ambiguous label that is harder to see through. Warming can be measured, but how the heck do you measure “disruption”?

Ah, yes... global warming.

Oceans rising, unhappy polar bears, farms turning to desert, inundated coastal cities, cats and dogs living together. A generation of little kids terrorized daily by alarmist agitprop. Corrupt science, phony education and dishonest journalism, all pimping for a massive money-and-power grab by the elites.

Why in God's name would we believe you now?

Yes, compare Richard Lindzen, MIT prof. of meteorology: Our perceptions of nature are similarly dragged back centuries so that the normal occasional occurrences of open water in summer over the North Pole, droughts, floods, hurricanes, sea-level variations, etc. are all taken as omens, portending doom due to our sinful ways (as epitomized by our carbon footprint).

"Are they going to change the name of weathermen to disruption analysts?" he quipped. GOP lawmakers already exploited a terminology change of their own by re-branding the "cap-and-trade" bill as "cap-and-tax."

Holdren's "global climate disruption" isn't the most convoluted term to grace the climate debate, however.

According to the NASA article, early studies on the impact humans had on global climate referred to the relationship as "inadvertent climate modification."
