(Alternate title: Is the Climate Disrupting in Here, or is John Holdren Crazy?”)

The Obama Administration’s free-range uber-leftist psychopath “Science Czar” John Holdren, the same guy who wants to de-develop America (but in a “free market” kinda way) has obviously been charged with re-branding the foundering “global warming” movement:

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.

An administration that goes out of its way to make terrorism sound less dangerous than it really is (i.e. “man-caused disaster”) makes the push to sell “global warming” as more dangerous than it really is. Sounds like somebody’s starting to feel uncomfortable because the icecaps and Greenland ice sheets aren’t melting fast enough. Switching “warming” to “disruption” is like Chicken Little — finally realizing that everybody’s catching on — switching to crying “the ground is rising!”

Re-branding shams is standard operating procedure for this bunch. The first thing that’s usually done with a scheme that has been exposed is to fall back, re-name it, and present the same thing all over again under a different label. An example of that is ACORN switching its name to “Communities for Change” or any other number of things that didn’t sound like “ACORN.”

Here’s a slide from Holdren’s powerpoint presentation in Oslo (ZZzzzz):

Now if we can only convince them that Powerpoint presentations cause global climate disruption.

If you ask me, the science it settled: These people are nuts — I mean, “sanity disruptions.”

Update:

Roger emails: “Regarding “global climate disruption — I think this is what the sane world calls ‘weather.'”

Maybe the Weather Channel will pick up on Holdren’s re-branding: “You’re watching the Global Climate Disruption Channel, with climate disruptions on the eights…”
