How many times have they tried this? The only changing that needs to be done imo is this admin gone in Nov..
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.
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.
Climate disruption is not a creation of a political party---it is a scientific issue,a reality,that fragile people deny because it is just too frightening
Wake up. People deny the role human 'living' plays in CLIMATE CHANGE (<--- btw, what was wrong with that phrase) because scientists have altered the data in order for people like Gore to profit. Then add to that Democrats who call for a 'hearing' on the matter, but they only let one side of the argument present their 'case'... Ohh my gosh, it just so happens to be the 'side' that incorporates the Obama stamp of approval 'cap and trade' bill. How about Capital Hill present a REAL debate on the issue?

hard to change caught phrases
bet the George W administration would have liked to take back "mission accomplished"
but yes global warming is stuck in heads and does not fully cover the issue
and when a caught phrase becomes so common that is it used without thought, then it loses its power to communicate meaning

This is a real problem that the rest of the world is recognizing. We are falling behind on green technology, while other countries are pushing forward. I Know how we like to brag we are # 1, but were falling behind. China is setting up to be the super power on green technology. We are going to have to rely on them for solar components just like we depend on the Middle East for oil. We need to get in the game and catch up. If your not worried about the environment, at least jobs will be created by going green.
