Great news!! The Guardian has stopped using the misleading phrase “climate change” and will as from now call it “climate crisis”. Who will be first to follow? #ClimateCrisis #ClimateBreakdown #ClimateEmergency
The Guardian is updating our style guide to accurately reflect the nature of the environmental crisis. “Climate change” —> “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” “Global warming” —> “global heating” “Climate skeptic” —> “climate science denier”
OK, I get it, BUT. "Climate change" is different from "climate emergency" or "climate crisis" - the latter two might be a result of the former. I disagree that "climate breakdown" is useful when describing climate itself.
The is changing the language that it uses to more clearly communicate the climate & ecological emergencies. This is something that news outlets around the world must do as a part of working with government & other institutions to #TellTheTurth.
Because language shapes perception, the Guardian is changing the language it uses about the environment. Climate change is now a climate emergency, or crisis Global warming is global heating Climate skeptics are climate science deniers.

The Guardian updates its climate terminology. "Climate change” —> “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” “Global warming” —> “global heating” “Climate skeptic” —> “climate science denier”
‘climate crisis’ & ‘climate emergency’ are easier words to translate to communities than the word ‘climate change’. Great job Guardian and to the scientists making the effort to bridge this gap.
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. #Climate

I'm so mad about this, I'm never going to buy the Guardian again!
Climate crisis I can live with. Global heating I’m fully on board with. Now let’s just get ‘biodiversity crisis’ on the agenda. >> Why the Guardian is changing the language it uses about the environment.
New Guardian Style guide “climate sceptic” -> “climate science denier” "climate change” ->“climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” “global warming” -> “global heating” Same problem, but after decades of doing too little.
I'm far from convinced this is a useful change in editorial policy, specifically around the labelling of sceptics. My twitter experience tells me is a great way to shut down discussion. I think we need to work together so being adverserial is not helpful.
Apparently believes that policing language is the way to convince s̴c̴e̴p̴t̴i̴c̴s̴ deniers about gobal w̴a̴r̴m̴i̴n̴g̴ heating? Such Orwellian newspeak will only fuel their suspicions. And what's the next step on the treadmill? "Global roasting"?

This shift in language is important. Journalists, take note. "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.”
Because the language we use matters. #ClimateEmergency “Why the Guardian is changing the language it uses about the environment”
