I was live on @BBCNews last night talking about the language of #climate change. Here's a thread of short clips. First, I was asked to address what we call it: #ClimateChange #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #GlobalWarming Great to talk with @bbcdavideades!
Then we discussed a great term: #GlobalWeirding. Because human-caused #climate disruption is so much more than warming. It's the increased frequency & intensity of #extremeweather #heavyrain #Heatwaves #Wildfires #drought #flooding and more.
I explained why #greenhouse gases or #GHGs are not a great term for the public and why I prefer heat-trapping #pollution - it explains the mechanism.

Directly address the lies and intentional attempts at misinformation -great examples here by @KHayhoe in her #GlobalWeirding episodes, but also see resources from @UCSUSA, and #ClimateBrawl by @GeraldKutney (3/n) youtube.com/channel/UCi6Rk…
