The Guardian Newspaper announces new “style guide”: reporters must write hysterically about the climate

On May 17, The Guardian announced a new “style guide” for its reporters writing on climate-related issues. The Guardian claims it “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.”

Even as the earth’s climate appears to be more pleasant than ever, with fewer hurricanes, fewer deaths from disasters, and record yields of major food crops, governments and government trusters are amping up their rhetoric about theory of apocalyptic-man-made-global-warming-by-CO2. Critical analysis or skepticism are increasingly shunned in government-supporting newspapers.

The LA Times has banned all letters to the editor which question the government theory. The Portland, Oregon School district has banned all school materials which question the theory.
