I was asked recently if I believed in "Climate Change".
I said, "Yes, yes I do. It was warm yesterday, and today it is quite chilly. There are quite obvious differences in climate between Summer and Winter, not to mention differences between places closer to the equator and those further from it and they each have their own varying climate changes depending on the time of year. So yes, I believe in 'Climate Change.'"
I was then promptly told I had "no fucking clue what I was talking about" and to "read a newspaper sometime." I told them to read a fucking dictionary.
What happened to "Global Warming"? Why did people stop using that term? Was it not PC enough? Was it not ambiguous enough? Seriously. Global Warming is pretty straight-to-the-point. How climate change suddenly became a replacement is beyond me.
A similar thing happened in High School when I was asked if I believed in "Intelligent Design."
After thinking on it for a few minutes I came back to him and told him I did, believing full well that intelligent design just meant a logical and well structured design.
In my defence I'm not religious at all. I had no idea what the term had been stolen and molested in to.
Can we all agree right now to stop using stupid terms like these? I'll be your friend on Facebook if you do.
