Even the New York Times is falling for the Right wing BS-campaign to change the name of “Global Warming” (which carries all of the appropriate connotations of what is actually happening) to “Climate Change” (which the Right hopes will lessen the urgency of the problem in the public’s mind).
That said, the article is actually rather on target, and not at all in the camp of anti-environmental propoganda.
The irony, is that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group with a very PC title, has just issued a report saying that it is about 90% likely that the warming of the earth since 1950 has been caused by the excessive burning of fossil fuels and the associated green-house gasses. They also warn of future rising of sea levels and ever more warming.
The PR campaign is just not enough to blunt the facts on the ground. Thank god.
For my part however, I’m gonna continue to call it Global Warming.
