When somebody pointed this out, I thought it was a joke.

Well, it is sort of but these people are actually serious. Extreme activism being disguised as science and journalism. We are living in a time,  of one of the biggest scandals in history. The  blatantly biased media, abusing the freedom of the press to impose their extreme views on us with entity to hold them accountable.

Why the Guardian is changing the language it uses about the environment

From now, house style guide recommends terms such as ‘climate crisis’ and ‘global heating’

The Guardian officially goes full climate alarmist language

From WUWT:

Maybe you noticed the picture and caption to the linked story/announcement.

What they failed to mention is this:

"In 2005, the official global polar bear estimate was about 22,500.

Since 2005, however, the estimated global polar bear population has risen by more than 30% to about 30,000 bears, far and away the highest estimate in more than 50 years.

A growing number of observational studies have documented that polar bears are thriving, despite shrinking summer sea ice. "

Polar Bear Numbers Could Have Quadrupled

  • Press Release, Global Warming Policy Foundation        

Researcher says attempts to silence her have failed


Polar bear numbers could easily exceed 40,000, up from a low point of 10,000 or fewer in the 1960s.

In "1984", there was a conversation with a guy who workedfor the language ministry, or some such. His job was to redefine, and more importantly, to eliminate words from the language.  He bragged that in 20 years, the conversation they were having would be impossible.

With regards to your reference Tim:

George Orwell Explains How “Newspeak” Works, the Official Language of His Totalitarian Dystopia in 1984

"In other words, Newspeak isn’t just a set of buzzwords, but the deliberate replacement of one set of words in the language for another. The A class contains “everyday life” words that have been mutated with cumbersome prefixes and intensifiers: “uncold” for warm, “pluscold and doublepluscold” for “very cold” and “superlatively cold.”

When you control language, you control thought...

This is true Tim but  in the world of authentic science, data and facts trump everything else. Read the 16 discussions here, where  the MSM's junk science is obliterated with empirical data and authentic science.

The MSM is winning the war of words.......unfortunately because that is what they do.......use words to tell us what they think that we should know.

Used to be that the MSM told us what was going on but now they tell us what they think that we should know.

 They control the stage and there is no overseeing entity/body that holds them accountable for providing accurate facts as they abuse freedom of the press. 

However, you can say there is a climate crisis until the cows come farting home but when it comes down to the actual data, on weather, climate, biology, agronomy, energy, food production, zoology, plant science and all other fields of science, the truth is.............we are currently having a climate optimum for life. 

The only fields where CO2 has been defined as pollution are politics and media all other fields its still a beneficial gas.

Actually, they tell us that time is of the essence if we are to save the planet. They are giving us 12 years but we have to act NOW! And we have to do what they say NOW!

What are we saving the planet from?

Holocene climatic optimum

And how much will it cost to save us from the climate optimum?

How Much Will the Green New Deal Cost Your Family?

The American Action Forum estimates that, between 2020 and 2029, the energy and environmental components of the Green New Deal would cost $8.3 trillion to $12.3 trillion, or $52,000 to $72,000 per household. The total GND program, including the jobs and “social justice” policies, would cost $51.1 trillion to $92.9 trillion, or $316,010 to $419,010 per household.



Please explain to us again, why Trumps withdrawal from the fraudulent Climate Accord is causing him to be solely responsible for destroying the planet and the futures of our children and grand children?

Why Most Published Research Findings Are False



"There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false. The probability that a research claim is true may depend on study power and bias, the number of other studies on the same question, and, importantly, the ratio of true to no relationships among the relationships probed in each scientific field. In this framework, a research finding is less likely to be true when the studies conducted in a field are smaller; when effect sizes are smaller; when there is a greater number and lesser preselection of tested relationships; where there is greater flexibility in designs, definitions, outcomes, and analytical modes; when there is greater financial and other interest and prejudice; and when more teams are involved in a scientific field in chase of statistical significance. Simulations show that for most study designs and settings, it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true. Moreover, for many current scientific fields, claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. In this essay, I discuss the implications of these problems for the conduct and interpretation of research."

A National Narrative for Media on Climate Change

Guest Opinion by Kip Hansen

"Those of you who closely watch the media — newspapers, broadcast & streaming  news, national magazines, national public radio — may have noticed that all the news about climate change is beginning to sound the same — regardless of outlet (there are a few sensible exceptions).   This is no accident.  In fact, it is an organized movement among American journalists."

"What is their playbook?  What’s the narrative they expect journalists to stick to?

It starts with this:  “Transforming the media’s coverage of the climate crisis” and morphs into a “FAQ” titled “The media are complacent while the world burns” with these ideas and suggestions like these:

1.  Climate is a crisis.

2.  The Green New Deal is “a plan to mobilize the United States to stave off climate disaster and, in the process, create millions of green jobs.” and the GND has massive public support.  [ NB:  see Postscript at the end of this column. ]

3.  Climate is the “biggest story of our time”.

4.  Journalists should push the  “….warning that humanity has a mere 12 years to radically slash greenhouse-gas emissions or face a calamitous future in which hundreds of millions of people worldwide would go hungry or homeless or worse.”  and that  “our civilization today faces the prospect of extinction”.

If this all sounds like a Climate Pragmatists Worst Nightmare, then you are starting to understand correctly.  The CJR/Nation/Guardian cabal is working on a “handbook” to help news organizations “get the story right”.  In other words, they are writing the Climate Journalism Narrative –  a point for point list of what every climate story  should say and how it should say it  (and, remember folks, ”every story is a climate story”).    They call on journalists to “Learn the science” suggesting that  instead of actually reading anything  containing the science of the climate, such as the real science sections of the IPCC AR5 report,  they recommend that journalists read “Four recent books—McKibben’s Falter, Naomi Klein’s On Fire, David Wallace-Wells’s The Uninhabitable Earth, and Jeff Goodell’s The Water Will Come—are good places to start.” — all of which are extreme climate alarmist propaganda."

metmike: I agree that this is happening and for the reasons stated by the author.
