White House Creates New Term For Global Warming because it Doesn't Sound Dangerous Enough

The government has decided that the term "global warming" just doesn't bring enough fear to public, and so has opted for a more inflammatory term - "global climate disruption." (And they think Republicans are the fear mongerers?)
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.
Why does the Obama Administration want to raise fear on this issue? Is it because the public is growing suspicious of global warming? Or maybe it's because Congress has still not been successful in passing a climate bill:
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.
Hopefully the public will be able to see past this nonsense!
