The Name Changes But The Game Remains The Same

The term "Global Warming" isn't working out to well, considering for years the trend has been towards global cooling, with no sign of warming for over 17 years.

The replacement term "Climate Change" apparently wasn't scary nor descriptive enough.

Now the new favored term is "Climate Disruption".

Disruption is scarier sounding and a harder hypothesis to prove or disprove, and after all how could a Progressive be for disrupting the established climate order?

The goal, previously hidden and denied is now openly stated by many environmental groups is to destroy capitalism and replace it with socialism using "Climate Disruption" as the driver.

The Daily Caller: 130 Environmental Groups Call For An End To Capitalism

Environmentalists have declared that global warming can’t be stopped without ending the “hegemonic capitalist system,” saying that cap-and-trade systems and conservation efforts are “false solutions.” “The structural causes of climate change are linked to the current capitalist hegemonic system,” reads the final draft of the Margarita Declaration, presented at a conference including about 130 environmental groups. “To combat climate change it is necessary to change the system,” the declaration adds.

To add some irony, guess where they met:

Environmental activists met in the oil producing, socialist country of Venezuela as part of a United Nations-backed event to increase civil engagement in the lead up to a major climate conference.

Oil producing, carbon-exhaling Venezuela. Given the established track record of self-declared socialist countries Venezuela is probably not just an evil carbon producing country but probably an environmental nightmare as well. But declare yourself socialist and it covers all faults.

The global green watermelon movement - the green on the outside is peeling off revealing the solid red underneath.

Perhaps we should preface whatever term the eco-marxists use with the word "Imaginary"?

"Imaginary" Climate Disruption.
"Imaginary" Climate Change.
"Imaginary" Global Warming.
"Imaginary" New Ice Age (for those of us who remember the 70's)

Scott: Imaginary would be a decent start indeed on the road to mocking these idiots.

PH: Proudly guilty of same! When the facts don't match the models I go with the facts. The enviro-leftists, not so much.
