When the Trump administration said that they were going to quiet the fervent alarm of climate change pushers, they weren’t kidding. Now, it seems that the government is not only continuing with that message, but they’re changing the message altogether.
The UK-based news service the Guardian claims to have obtained emails between different employees at the National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), an arm of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that focuses on farm land conservation.
According to the Guardian:
A missive from Bianca Moebius-Clune, director of soil health, lists terms that should be avoided by staff and those that should replace them. “Climate change” is in the “avoid” category, to be replaced by “weather extremes." Instead of “climate change adaption”, staff are asked to use “resilience to weather extremes."
The primary cause of human-driven climate change is also targeted, with the term “reduce greenhouse gases” blacklisted in favor of “build soil organic matter, increase nutrient use efficiency." Meanwhile, “sequester carbon” is ruled out and replaced by “build soil organic matter."
If nothing else, the change in terms will hopefully lead to the federal government using more specific terminology, instead of constantly blaming everything on general "climate change."
In another alleged email reported on by the Guardian, NRCS Deputy Chief for Programs Jimmy Bramblett told senior employees something that would have been apparent to anyone with half a brain.
Here’s Bramblett’s comments, from the email:
It has become clear one of the previous administration’s priority is not consistent with that of the incoming administration. Namely, that priority is climate change. Please visit with your staff and make them aware of this shift in perspective within the executive branch.
Duh. If your staff and senior employees specialize in areas that concern climate change, as long as they had been anywhere near a TV or computer in the past two years, they should already know that President Trump is not former President Obama when it comes to the topic of climate change.
From “global warming” to “climate change” to “weather extremes,” whatever you want to call it, it just seems like weather to most of us. Sometimes it rains, sometimes it snows and sometimes there are hurricanes or tornados. It’s the same weather that’s been around for a very long time.
Maybe the climate change alarmists should take “pause” and think about that.
