Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 18, 2019

The Guardian has updated its style guide to introduce terms that more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world. Instead of "climate change" the preferred terms are "climate emergency, crisis or breakdown" and "global heating" is favoured over "global warming", although the original terms are not banned.

Apparently calling it a "climate emergency" doesn't work so well.

"Federal Labor leader Bill Shorten has referred to climate change as an "emergency," in his final formal pitch to voters ahead of Saturday's federal election.

"if you vote Labor we will deliver the change that the nation deserves from day one," the Opposition Leader said in his speech at Bowman Hall in Blacktown, New South Wales, on Thursday.

Today's news:

"Australia's Conservatives Win Surprise Election Victory
Voters in mining areas turned on center-left opposition that had campaigned on climate change issues, preliminary results show"

I guess Australians aren't willing to vote for a New Green Deal anymore than Senate democrats.

"Millions, if not billions, of the world's most vulnerable people in mortal danger as food and water sources are depleted and abnormal, destructive weather patterns increase"?

Climate Terror? Global Incineration. Climate Holocaust. Global Mass-Murder.

Lots of possibilities for fear-mongers.
