I’d Prefer “Anthropogenic Planetary Meteorological Destabilization.

2010/09/17

First… it was the impending doom of Man-Made Global Warming.

Then… it was Anthropogenic Climate Change.

Today, it’s let’s see?  Ah. Yes. Today it’s New!  It’s Improved!  It’s…

Global Climate Disruption.’

. . .

Hey! At least it ain't "Anthropogenic."

. . .

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.

Whoaaaaa… Hold on, there Johnny-boy. That’s it? ‘Global climate disruption’? Where’s my anthropogenic guilt, pal?

    These clowns have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s weather, man. There’s a summer, fall, winter and spring. Do you see the pattern here? In the late spring, summer and early fall, it’s usually hot and in late fall, winter and early spring, it’s usually cold or cool. Weather goes through cyclic ebbs and flows just like the tides of the ocean. They just take longer.

    We have 5 year cycles, seven year cycles, generational cycles, hundred year cycles…you get the picture. The last volcanic eruption in Iceland will probably bode ill for the European continent for the next few years as far as their winters go. The eruption of Krackatoa back in the 1880’s changed the weather for at least a decade all over the world.

    I’m just sayin’, Mike

    Yep. Every first year geology student learns that the only constant in climate is change.

    Cheers!

    How do you disrupt something that is in constant flux?

    Gee Chuck, how would I know?
    Last time I tried that anything like it, my kid pulled a world-class hissy-fit. Melt-down, actually. More’n a decade ago. Her ma and I still laugh. Didn’t work then.
