Obama’s science Czar John Holdren has decided the new name for global warming, er, climate change shall be:
Because the first two didn’t work apparently.
(CNSNews.com) – John Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, says that the term “global warming” is “a dangerous misnomer” that should be replaced with “global climate disruption.”
I have a new name for Mr. Holdren, sort of like a superhero name: “Johnny Desperate”.
From CNS news and the American Thinker, barf bag optional.
John Holdren, our official fraudulent “Science Czar” for our equally mendacious President, has dumped “global warming” as a “dangerous misnomer.” Ah, yes, that would be it then. It’s not the facts but the words that are wrong, says America’s official Doctor Science.
In scientific terms this means John Holdren has run up the white flag and is begging for mercy. “Warming” is something we can measure scientifically. “Global Warming” is a lot more speculative, but with satellites, weather balloons, and plenty of ocean buoys, we now know that it’s just wrong. Global Warming has been shot down in flames by scientific skeptics who resorted to an unfair tactic called “facts and observations.”
The wild hypothesis of “catastrophic anthropogenic global warming a 100 years from now,” is so obviously harebrained sci fi that no sane person can believe in it.
Dr. Holdren’s newest brainstorm? Forget all that warming stuff. No, we are now supposed to believe in something called “global climate disruption.”
That way some wildly overpaid “internationally respected” climate modeler can predict that in a hundred years things will get two degrees warmer, colder, or neither one or the other, and still predict the end of the earth. That’ll be a couple of hundred million dollars for more life-saving “research,” if you please.
The media are banging on “scientific” doors for another cataclysmic headline, right now, to feed their hunger for the Scare of the Day. Their whole business model depends on it. The New York Times is talking about giving up their paper edition entirely. ABC has fired its “News” chief. They desperately need another Scary Hobgoblin to goose up the ignorant masses, or they might go belly-up tomorrow. Let’s hope they do go down tomorrow, because it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch. That why free markets have losers, and boy, are these people ever losers.
I suppose that’s why Dr. Holdren thinks that old and toxic phrase “Global Warming” is now “dangerous.” But dangerous for whom? Not dangerous for the real world, that’s for sure. Not dangerous for developing countries that build another coal-fired power plant every day to feed their billions of hungry people. They can see people dying on the streets in Calcutta, but they can’t see two degrees warmer in a hundred years being such a big deal. Maybe Dr. Holdren thinks that “Global Warming” is now “dangerous” for the corrupt politicized faux-scientists who have built their careers on ecological hobgoblins? That sounds more like it.
